HI-COM provides professional interpreting services in more than 70 languages. We believe that in our globalized and interconnected world, interpreters hold the keys to effective cross-cultural communication.  Interpreting, also known as interpretation, spoken translation or oral translation, is the practice of conveying a message from one language to another language, retaining as much of the core intention of the speaker as possible. Specialists in multicultural communication solutions, HI-COM is a well-known and trusted partner to hundreds of enterprises, companies and agencies around the world.

Effective interpretation goes beyond language fluency, and is about understanding cultural nuances, speaking idiomatically and being experienced in the field in which you are translating, be it in legal, medical, or other technical industries. HI-COM provides reliable and cost-effective Interpreting services, with our network of highly skilled, qualified and experienced multi-linguists.

Consecutive Interpreting

Consecutive Interpreting is the other main mode of interpreting, where the interpreter waits for the speaker to finish a sentence or idea before interpreting to the audience or individual. We support our clients in more than 70 languages, providing professional meeting interpreting, exhibition interpreting, face-to-face negotiations, product launches and any other types of events where consecutive interpreting is appropriate. We work with professional, trained and highly experienced interpreters and leaders in their fields.

Simultaneous Interpreting

SI or Simultaneous Interpreting is where the interpreter listens to the speaker and delivers the translation in real time – at the same rate of delivery as the speaker – to the audience. It is a mode of interpretation commonly deployed at conferences, seminars or forums where the interpreters will typically be situated in a discreet booth, wearing microphones and headsets, with a direct link to the speaker’s microphone, and a link to the headsets worn by the audience to receive the translation in real-time. Most commonly used where more than two languages are involved in the communication, SI is one of the key services HI-COM provides. With a decade of experience, our team is trained to support and succeed at events of all difficulty levels.
