ALTA’s Interpreting Services

Our network of professional certified interpreters come with deep subject matter expertise and years of experience. We offer the following interpretation services for our clients:

Face-to-Face or In-person Interpreting

Our on-site interpreters are available both in the most commonly requested languages as well as rare or indigenous languages: Arabic, Cantonese, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, Spanish, Vietnamese, and more. If your language isn’t listed here, please contact us to discuss your language needs. ALTA offers two types of on-site interpretation services:

  1. Consecutive interpreting – Used in small group settings or one-to-one meetings (e.g. depositions) to facilitate communication between two languages.
  2. Simultaneous interpreting – Generally used for large meetings or conferences where two or more languages are spoken. Our trained interpreters sit in an isolated booth and listen to the main speaker through a headset, while simultaneously interpreting to audience members via a wireless headset. This style of interpreting is also referred to as U.N. style interpretation. ALTA provides certified and/or trained simultaneous interpreters complete with the necessary equipment.

We offer on-site interpreter services in the following industries:

  • Medical Interpreting: Our medical interpreting team works in hospitals and doctors’ offices to facilitate doctor-patient interactions.
  • Legal Interpreting: Our legal interpreting team facilitates depositions, court proceedings, attorney-client interactions, and trials.

We also have a broader team that can help in any number of common business situations, such as accompanying non-English-speaking guests at meetings or on-site tours. If you are planning a conference and need full-scale simultaneous interpretation using booths and headsets, we provide equipment and full setup.
