Interpreting

Talk the talk

Dixon Associates are experienced when it comes to talking your talk. We have an extensive panel of trained and qualified interpreters specialising in all languages and subject matters working on a national and international basis.

Whether you need someone for an hour or a day, a week or a month, we have interpreters local to the assignment, to fulfil your requirements, with the necessary specialist knowledge and experience.  As with our translation service, all interpreters who work for us sign a secrecy agreement, so that the highest levels of confidentiality are maintained at all times.

After a briefing by you, we will advise on the most suitable type of interpreter: ad hoc, consecutive or simultaneous and then brief the interpreter fully on the assignment, enabling him to adequately prepare for the interpreting and the topics and issues likely to be covered.

Consecutive interpreting is the most commonly requested and is the simplest service to arrange and set up for you. A consecutive interpreter will wait until the end of the speaker’s sentence before interpreting. This is for less formal situations such as business visits.

Simultaneous interpreting requires interpreters to work in teams of 2 or 3 in sound-proof booths. Interpreters interpret what the speaker is saying, as they are saying it, into a microphone and delegates listen through headsets. This is for more formal situations such as conferences, courts, etc.

Our interpreters hold a NRPSI or DPSI qualification or have at least 5 years experience. This means that the interpreter we provide is trained and qualified to work in the chosen field.

Should you need an interpreter of a specific gender/ethnic group, then please contact us to fully discuss your requirements so we may find the right interpreter for your assignment.

Foreign voice overs

We provide voice over artistes to localise corporate DVDs and CDs. Our artistes have significant experience in recording for television, film and radio and our portfolio includes actors, broadcasters and commentators. We cover a broad range of languages, using only professional male and female voice over artistes working in their mother tongue.  At Dixon Associates we can carry out the whole process for you, or just part of it, including translating the script, adapting this to your target market and audience and recording in a professional studio.

Please call us on +44 (0) 01902 312988  for sample voice over recordings or further information. We would be happy to discuss this process with you in detail.
