Interpreting Services 

We offer a wide range of language and sign language interpreting services. With 40 years’ experience in the interpreting industry, we understand the importance of helping parties successfully communicate between languages.

We’ve fine-tuned our service to help guide you from the planning stage right through to completion, advising on the most suitable type of interpreting for your requirements, then providing the highest quality interpreters and best equipment for the task.

Our linguists adhere to a stringent code of practice that guarantees the highest standards of accuracy, impartiality, confidentiality and cultural sensitivity. All our interpreters are affiliated to professional bodies including the International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC), Institute of Translation and Interpreting and the Chartered Institute of Linguists.

With UK and worldwide coverage in over 200 languages, we’ll always have an interpreter available to help.

Court interpreting

Trusted by legal firms in the UK and across the globe, we provide specially trained interpreters who have particular experience in court interpreting, making sure you do not miss a word.

Business interpreting

From multilingual negotiations and networking to casual meetings and crucial industry conferences, our skilled interpreters deliver a precise and convenient service tailored to your specific requirements.

Telephone interpreting

Comtec TALK is our on-demand telephone interpreting service which connects you via an interpreter directly to your client in their native language, allowing you to do business in over 150 languages worldwide 24/7, 365 days a year.

Sign language interpreting

Whichever sign language is being used – including British, American or French – our team can offer the relevant interpreting services to help you connect.

Whispered interpreting

Discreet and convenient, it is exactly what it sounds like – your interpreter works alongside you as part of the conversation, delivering a whispered translation of what your contact is saying.

We typically require 48 hours’ notice to arrange for a specialist and experienced interpreter to be available for your assignment.
To select the most appropriate linguist for your assignment, please share with us the following information: nature of session, languages, date, location, start time, number of delegates, expected duration.

When you might need an interpreter:

  • Conferences
  • Promotional events
  • Exhibitions
  • Board meetings
  • Training courses
  • Legal proceedings
