Simultaneous interpreting

Speakers address the meeting in a continuous flow; the interpretation is simultaneous and requires technical support.

Consecutive interpreting

The speech is interpreted sentence by sentence or summarised during pauses. No conference equipment is required.

Interpreting equipment

The format, the size of the event and, of course, the client's preferences determine which conference equipment is used. In addition to the interpreters’ booth or whispering system, virtual platforms are also available.

As if there were only one language

“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, you speak to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, you speak to his heart.”

Nelson Mandela

The art of interpreting is to convey more than the spoken word. It is about allowing the listener to share in the core message, thoughts and emotions of the speaker, while building bridges between cultures.

What clients say about avl interpreters:

  • «The simultaneous translation German - French by Annette von Lerber and her colleague at our management meeting in Arbon in the canton of Thurgau was very clear and fluent. Since we started working with avl interpreters we have noticed a high quality in the simultaneous interpreting which had not been the case before.»

    UBS executive, Conference Centre Wolfsberg, Ermatingen, Canton of Thurgau

  • «I was very satisfied with the performance of the German-French interpreters, who were very familiar with our technical terms. The technical solution proposed by AVL interpreters (video conference via zoom) also worked smoothly and the clear instructions were very helpful. It was very reassuring to have such a competent partner at our side during the whole period from planning to the end of the event.»

    Organisation of the working environment, Nicole Schaffner, Co-Head of the office, Solothurn
