Professional interpreting services for private & public sector organisations
As one of the UK’s leading interpreting agencies, Welcome Translation Experts (WTE) has the facilities to handle single or ongoing interpreting projects on any scale. Whether you need public service interpreting (NHS, court or police interpreters), or multilingual interpreting services for conferences or business meetings, we can assist you.
If you need simultaneous interpreting services for a conference, or consecutive face-to-face interpreting, our specialised language interpreters offer their services in both major modes of interpretation.
Simultaneous interpreting for conferences
In this form of interpreting the professional interpreter renders the message in the target language “in real time”, without interruptions to the flow of the original speaker. It usually requires special audio and electronic equipment to be performed efficiently.
Face-to-face & telephone consecutive interpreting
In consecutive interpreting, the speaker and the language interpreter alternate in speaking. This allows the linguist to repeat each portion of speech in the target language. This practice is very popular, as no interpretation equipment is required, which ultimately reduces the cost to you.
Both forms can take place on-site (commonly referred to as “face-to-face interpreting”) or over the phone (“telephone interpreting”).

In business settings such as meetings, presentations or round tables, you are most likely to require consecutive interpreting, where the speakers and the interpreter alternate, or whispered interpreting, where the interpreter can whisper a translation simultaneously to the listener.
Conference interpreters are most commonly required to interpret simultaneously. In simultaneous interpreting, the interpreter verbally translates the source language into the target language while the source language is being spoken.
Medical interpreters employ the most common mode of interpreting, called consecutive interpreting. This is where the interpreter listens to a few sentences at a time and makes notes, then delivers a verbal translation after each short unit of speech.
Telephone interpreting is mostly required in situations where it is especially difficult for an interpreter to be present in person, such as in prisons or detention centres.
This type of interpreting may also be called for in cases of emergency.
