INTERPRETATION

(Mainly between Chinese and English; for other languages, please inquire)

Do you need an English to Chinese interpreter?

We at Nihao Global specialise in interpretation between English and Chinese, and has interpreters across 19 major Chinese cities, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Tianjin and Chengdu.

We can provide prescreened interpreters for short term (1/2 day) through to long term (12 months+) contracts. Whether your event is large or small, we will cater to your needs.

  • Accompanying interpreter/PA: the interpreter travels and works with you as your assistant during your trip in China. Besides interpreting, he or she will also take meeting notes, provide assistance with city navigation.
  • Consecutive interpretation (CI): the interpreter speaks after the source-language speaker has finished speaking. This is the most common type of interpretation and can be applied in small and medium-sized meetings and commercial negotiations. CI interpreters must hold CI interpretation certificates.
  • Simultaneous interpretation (SI): the interpreter renders the message in the target-language while the source-language speaker speaks. It is usually applied in big conferences with the support of SI equipment including headsets to facilitate uninterrupted multi-language communication. SI interpreters must hold SI certificates. They are systematically trained in simultaneous interpretation. For this reason, they may be better at simultaneous interpretation than consecutive interpretation. If the length of the simultaneous interpretation event exceeds 40 minutes, then 2 interpreters are required, given the intense nature of this job.
  • Nihao Global can provide all the equipment required for simultaneous interpretation events as a turn-key solution (Headsets, console, booth etc.)
