What is a certified interpreter?

In the United States the term “certified” interpreter describes a court interpreter who has passed the state or federal certification exam. Court interpreter certification for languages other than Spanish, and, namely, Arabic, Cantonese, Haitian-Creole, Korean, Laotian, Mandarin, Russian, Somali, Vietnamese, is available in many different states. Federal certification is available currently for three languages only: Spanish, Haitian-Creole, and Navajo.


What is the difference between consecutive interpretation and simultaneous interpretation?

Consecutive interpretation requires the speaker to stop after a few sentences and let the interpreter interpret the speaker’s statement. In simultaneous interpretation (also known as U.N.-style interpretation) the interpreter, who uses interpreting equipment and works with another interpreter in a soundproof booth, listens to the speaker’s speech in one language and simultaneously converts it into another language, without waiting for the speaker to finish his or her statement. Simultaneous interpreting is used for high-level conferences, while consecutive interpreting is used for client meetings and depositions.


What is the difference between a certified translator and a certified interpreter?

It is very common for people outside of the foreign language world to use the terms “translator” and “interpreter” interchangeably. When you start working with All Language Alliance, Inc., you will learn that the terms “translator” and “interpreter” refer to members of two different professions. Legal translators deal with the legal text translation, legal terms translation and translate documents from the source language (the language the document is written in) into another language (called the target language). Legal interpreters, on the other hand, interpret, i.e. translate orally from one foreign language to another.

Many American companies are marketing their services and products in languages other than English. Can your document translation company translate marketing documents?

Yes, we provide multilingual marketing document translation services.

My company is doing business with China and needs English into Chinese translation services. Is it better to have our English corporate documents translated into Simplified Chinese, or to have them translated into Traditional Chinese?

If your English business documents will be only used in mainland China, we recommend having them translated into Simplified Chinese. If your documents will be used in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macao, and other places outside of mainland China, have them translated into Traditional Chinese.


Why does your legal translation company ask how the translated document will be used?

There are significant differences, for example, in the Spanish spoken in Mexico, Central America, South America, and Europe. Similarly, there are also differences between Canadian and European French, as well as Brazilian and Continental Portuguese. Professional certified translators are sensitive to the cultural and social subtleties and nuances. If your documents are aimed at consumers and if you need them translated into Spanish, Portuguese, or French — it is important to let your trusted translation services company know for which country or ethnic group you plan to use the documents (the documents’ target audience or readership).
