  • Conversation with a foreign agent;

Every company that works with translations has got employees who are specialized in interpretation. Besides, ordering these services to be fulfilled over the phone or using video-conference, a person has got additional benefits:

  • It is cheaper than inviting an interpreter to the venue.

How to Order Such Services

To submit a request to an agency, it is necessary to set the date and time of negotiations. After, it is better to determine and describe the subject of a conversation. For example, if it is a job interview, provide the details on the position you are applying, as well as inform the position of a person you are going to negotiate with. In such a way, an interpreter will have the possibility to be ready for the questions that can be discussed, as well as familiarize oneself with specific terminology used in a particular field. The better an interpreter is prepared, the faster and more effective the process will be. 

Besides, it makes sense to contact your interpreter before the set time (and to agree on this preliminary contact during the process of ordering) so that to make sure that the quality of the connection is good enough. Otherwise, an interview can be failed due to a bad connection.

If there is enough time to prepare for the upcoming negotiations, let an interpreter ask you questions if he/she has got any. In the case of the first phone conversation with a potential partner, there can be some taboo topics that should be avoided in discussions. Thus, an interpreter should be also informed so that to determine the manner and tone in the process of interpretation.

Modern technologies have imposed additional requirements for companies working in the field of translation. Interpretation is no exception. To get the services urgently fulfilled, look for a company that provides phone and online interpretation.
