INTERPRETATION (VERBAL TRANSLATION)

A language is the most important means of human communication that helps people to exchange their ideas and reach mutual understanding. People communicate using language in two ways: verbally and in writing.

If the communicating parties know the same language, then the communication occurs directly, and if they know different languages, then direct communication becomes impossible. In this case you have to resort to translation, that is rendering by means of one language of the ideas expressed in some other language.  

Consequently translation is an important auxiliary means that guarantees fulfillment of the communicative function by the language in the cases when people express their thoughts in different languages.  Translation plays an important role in exchange of information between different nations and serves the purpose of distribution of achievements of the world culture, science etc.

To learn a foreign language means first of all to learn to speak, to communicate using that language in verbal form. To speak a foreign language is a complex ability of a person to use linguistic material (sounds, words, word combinations, grammatical structures) in course of communication in accordance with a language situation.  A conversation may be realized as a monologic or dialogic speech.

A functional unit of a monologic speech is an utterance, that usually consists of 2 or 3 phrases, one of them describing some fact and two other explaining this fact. A phrase (Greek phrases - utterance) -- is a segment of speech between 2 pauses, united by a corresponding intonation. Every utterance renders a relatively complete or incomplete thought, fulfilling one of communicative functions.

Those functions include: an ability to greet a person, to introduce yourself or your companion, to tell your audience about yourself, to say goodbye, to make an apology, to thank somebody, to ask for something, to refer to somebody, to agree, to disagree, to deny, to ask, to  congratulate,  to invite, to refuse etc.

Interaction in communication is the ability to respond to the words of your companion and to encourage them to continue conversation.

An integral part of every dialogue, of every language interaction is a question and an answer.

There is a British saying: «If you want to speak, first learn how to ask questions».

You may raise a question in different ways: it may be enough to combine a couple of words with gestures and facial expressions to be understood. However, that will do only for beginners.  Communication is much more interesting and useful, if you grasp and use in conversation different linguistic clichés, expressions and phrases for everyday use.

It is easier to construct a dialogue if you know how to begin and finish a dialogue. The content of a mid part of a conversation may concern different questions: discussing problems, making a request, an invitation, requesting information, exchanging ideas, discussing everyday life, education, school, movies, sports, family etc.
The above-mentioned concerns learning a foreign language for verbal communication. 

Let us get back to interpretation in our translation bureau.

Concerning consecutive interpretation the list of work languages in our translation bureau is not as wide as the list for written translation.

As far as written translations for us are often performed by native speakers living in their native countries, we cannot invite them for interpreting from or into uncommon foreign languages. 

That's why our translation bureau has a permanent list of languages for consecutive translation.  

List of languages:

English, Hungarian, Greek, Hebrew, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, German, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese,  Serbo-Croatian, Slovak, Turkish, French, Czech, Japanese.
