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. All of our interpreters hold a NRPSI, DPSI, ITI or IOL qualification and have at least 5 years experience in interpreting. This means that the interpreter we provide is trained and qualified to work in their specialist 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.
We offer a personal service when you place your interpreting project with us. We work with yourselves to provide the highest quality service at competitive prices, within your budget and timeframe. Simple, because it doesn’t have to be complicated.
