Language Interpretation Increases Productivity & Inclusivity

Language interpretation is the process of managing the oral or voice communication from one source language into one or more output languages. The interpretation could be done simultaneously (in real-time) or consecutively (having the presenter pause at intervals to allow for interpretation over the same audio channel) - and could be either an exact translation or an approximate translation of the original content. The terms “interpretation” and “translation” are sometimes used interchangeably even though they actually have different meanings. Interpretation typically refers to spoken language while translation refers to written text.

Some Language Interpretation Definitions

  • Interpreting refers to the process of managing the communication from one language into another
  • Interpreter refers to the person who manages the conversion
  • Interpretation refers to the translated output

Benefits of Language Interpretation?

Most organizations are global with a wide range of multilingual constituents, including employees, customers, partners, vendors, members, and citizens. This creates a big communication challenge since the language spoken at meetings and events is often not the preferred language for the audience - leading to lower productivity, higher costs, lack of inclusion, and reduced participation. Offering language interpretation at meetings and events enables both speakers and participants to participate in their preferred languages which increases engagement, learning, and participation.
