Interpreting is both a professional task and one of trust. The interpreter undertakes the task of extemporaneously conveying messages between languages and cultures while also keeping the professional content. According to a Hungarian saying, words slip away. This, however, is not true anymore for the words used in interpreting. The interpretation has to stand the test of time.
The Process of Interpreting
The order is received by our Project Managers, who assess the order (date, place, duration, languages, profession, etc.) and clarify any arising questions. It is especially important to determine the professional field of the interpreting job and the types and amount of reference materials the customer can provide for the job that helps the interpreter prepare and thus provide good quality services. On the basis of this information, the Project Manager defines the personal and technical (interpreting equipment) requirements of the job.

Administration of the Interpreting Process
MULTI-LINGUA, Inc. has at its disposal an integrated software system that records and tracks the whole interpreting process and the related accounting and financial tasks. Our Project Managers record the following in the database of the system:
In the course of consecutive interpretation the interpreter takes notes and interprets the speech into the required language once the speaker has finished speaking, after certain sections. It is a more cost efficient solution than simultaneous interpretation, but it can be exhausting for the audience and also for the speaker listening to the given speech twice.
In the course of conference interpreting the interpreter translates the speech into the other language in a natural manner, speaking in first person singular, reproducing the style and tone of the speaker and faithfully transferring his personal points of view.
Simultaneous interpretation means a real time interpretation without interrupting the original speech. It doesn’t require extra time since the speaker and interpreter speak almost simultaneously. Its advantage is that the entire public can react to the speech at the same time, this way enhancing the common experience and the effects of the speech.
Japan may not be the best in the world when it comes to speaking English, but it remains a pioneer in developing cutting-edge translation technology.
With the 2020 Tokyo Olympics approaching, the nation is once again plotting to surprise the world, this time with high-quality, real-time machine translation systems.
Public and private institutions are working eagerly to develop and upgrade the technology so it can easily be used by tourists, whose numbers are growing sharply
There is nothing especially novel about machine translation, a technology that reaches back to 1951, when a team from IBM and Georgetown University first demonstrated a computer’s ability to translate short phrases from English into Russian. In 63 years, the machines involved in machine translation have evolved. What a warehouse-sized computer could do in 1951, a laptop can do even better today.
