Interpretation - What We Do

Interpretation…a verbatim, oral rendering from one language to another

The International Institute of St. Louis offers confidential and reliable in-person consecutive interpreting as well as over-the-phone interpreting. We link companies with customers and clients who do not speak the same language. Examples include welcoming foreign dignitaries, conducting a small group training session, or participating in a medical office visit.

In-Person Consecutive Interpretation

Our highly experienced and qualified professional interpreters are native language speakers who are also proficient in English. Interpreters use the words of the source-language speaker to the equivalent or closest counterpart for the word in the second language. We and our interpreters are:

  • Authorities in Our Field
  • Culturally Competent
  • Discreet and Confidential
  • Ethical
  • HIPAA Compliant

Consecutive Interpreting

In consecutive interpreting, the interpreter speaks after the source-language speaker has finished speaking. The speech is divided into segments, and the interpreter sits or stands beside the source-language speaker, listening and taking notes as the speaker progresses through the message. When the speaker pauses or finishes speaking, the interpreter then renders a portion of the message or the entire message in the target language.

Over-the-Phone Interpretation

The International Institute offers immediate access to more than 150 languages through telephonic interpreting. In-person interpreting is the ideal, but companies can sometimes face issues of affordability and convenience.

  • Intermittent walk-in customers
  • Referrals and other short-term contacts
  • Emergencies
  • Sales or repairmen in the field
  • Less common or rare language need

There is no minimum commitment and no monthly participation fees. To connect with telephonic services, customers call a 1-866 number; available 24/7/365.
