Interpretation Services during the pandemic
With successive containment measures, all possible services have been brought online and translation services have been no exception.
Even for those who are not aware of this activity, it will not be difficult to conceive the translation done online, but what about interpretation? How is it adapting and why is it important?
As already covered in one of our articles “The advantages of interpretation services” and also on our service presentation page, Interpretation focuses on the spoken language, being performed in real time, unlike the Translation that focuses on the texts.
In this regard, it is clear that the pandemic has an impact on the results of the Interpretation Services. Interpreters need to be physically present at events, conferences, fairs and business meetings in order to be able to do their work.
Despite the cancellations of events in sequence, new needs arose, because in this digital age, the pandemic has also come to demonstrate that it is possible to hold business meetings and even fairs, through online platforms. In view of this reality, the Interpretation Services experienced different performance scenarios.
The key here has been the level of technological evolution, which professionals and translation companies are able to put into practice immediately.
Role of Interpretation Services
Medical research companies and organizations like WHO, more than ever, need to communicate useful information to the world at large in the context of the pandemic. This information must reach different audiences in a clear and rigorous manner. And this is where the interpreters are fundamental. They are the best qualified professionals to get the message across correctly and quickly.
Interpretation helps unmistakably to overcome language barriers, being as much more effective, as the level of evolution of the technological means used to put it online.
In this unprecedented challenge, Interpretation Services have an important place. The task of establishing effective and reliable communication bridges is of vital importance in sectors like Health.
Consenso Global is also embedded in this mission. We have the technology, expertise, and the necessary motivation to face difficult times, but also of great evolution.
