Interpreting services
Interpreting is an oral translation of what is said (unlike translating which is in the written form).
agatrad SA is pleased to make its interpreting services available for the following events:
Interpreters for fairs, conferences, commercial assignments, conventions, corporate meetings, preparation and/or presentations, negotiations, etc.
Interpreters for interviews (television & radio), press conferences and all types of conferences.
Interpreters who accompany you to business meetings whether these are for business, legal, medical, tourist or private purposes, or any other reasons.


There are various types of interpreting services.

  • On-site interpreting: the interpreter is present during the event / remote interpreting: this is provided over the telephone, Internet or any other means of communication.
  • Simultaneous interpreting: The interpreter translates almost simultaneously what is being said without stopping (the interpreter’s voice often masks the speaker’s). The interpreter usually sits in a soundproof booth. This is normally used during conferences, seminars, shareholders’ meetings and other similar events.
  • Consecutive interpreting: The interpreter translates what is being said at regular intervals. It is normally used during courses, conferences and other events during which simultaneous interpreting cannot be used.
  • Liaison interpreting: The interpreter acts as the link during a conversation between several people who speak different languages. It is normally used during business, legal (at a lawyer’s or notary’s office) and medical appointments or tourist visits.
  • Whispered interpreting: The interpreter whispers the translation to the listener. It is normally used for tourist visits or if a single listener wishes to understand the speaker.

In all events, our interpreters will be at your side to provide a faithful translation of these exchanges to the last detail thereby optimising your international relations. Thorough preparation which includes a meeting with the assignment manager and/or consultation of the relevant documentation ensures a perfect command of the work to be done. The interpreter will be your assistant but will provide you with an accurate, neutral and objective translation of what is being said.
