Far beyond the written word, vital communication sometimes needs to occur in real time and in person. For multi-language meetings and conferences, Lazar & Associates offers consecutive and simultaneous interpreting services in over 150 languages.
Interpreting is the verbal component of written translation and provides a live linguist to help parties communicate when they don’t speak the same language. The best interpreters blend into the conversation seamlessly and facilitate communication without intrusion. The only thing you will remember is that you communicated effortlessly with colleagues and clients from around the world.
We maintain a proprietary database with detailed profiles of literally hundreds of approved interpreters across the country and around the world. Our approval process includes vetting resume/CV entries, calling references and noting any specific experience that the individual interpreter may possess. Our staff also note their geographic location, ability to travel, regional accents, etc. Lazar only employs interpreters with impeccable references and with verifiable experience.
We regularly provide consecutive and simultaneous interpreters for:
- Focus Groups
- Clinical Trials
- Meetings/Trade Shows
- Conference Calls
We also provide certified American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreter Services for effective communication with the deaf and hard of hearing, Telephone Interpreting and Escort Interpreting Services.
For simultaneous interpreting, we offer low cost rental of audio equipment including wireless headsets, isolation booths, microphones, etc. We provide shipping around the world to almost any location!
