Interpreting services: Interpretation in public services
Liaison or community interpretation is provided in public services such as Tax Authorities, Social Security, hospitals, etc. This type of interpretation - simultaneous translation
- has emerged mainly in places with a large inflow of foreign citizens, immigration and multilingual cultures, forcing public services to hire interpreters to be able to deal with immigrants' requests. AP | PORTUGAL, a member of the Portuguese and International Associations of Translators and Translation Companies, has the right professionals for your liaison/community interpretation needs.
Currently, this type of interpretation is more suitable for small meetings involving few participants, allowing the interpreter to do it similarly to consecutive, but with more intervals. As the name suggests, this type of community interpretation is used to establish a link between foreign delegations and the local community.
