In-Person Interpretation

On-site interpretation
In today’s globalized world, Kaplan Interpreting Services prioritizes clear, accurate, on-site interpretation. Our certified interpreters, fluent in over 200 languages, excel across sectors including legal, medical, business, and more.

On-site interpretation bolsters trust and relationships with clients or colleagues. Face-to-face interaction enriches message clarity and empathy, fostering positive experiences and outcomes. Trust Kaplan for your on-site interpretation needs.

Simultaneous interpretation

Simultaneous interpretation is when the interpreter renders the message in real-time as the speaker speaks. This method requires special equipment and is commonly used in large conferences and events where multiple languages are spoken. At Kaplan Interpreting Services, we use state-of-the-art equipment and highly trained interpreters to ensure that your message is accurately conveyed to your audience.


Consecutive interpretation

Consecutive interpretation is where the interpreter waits for the speaker to finish speaking before rendering the message into the target language. This method is commonly used in smaller meetings, legal proceedings, medical appointments, and other situations where a high level of accuracy is required. Our interpreters are trained to listen carefully and remember the message before rendering it into the target language.


Escort/travel interpretation

Interpreters at Kaplan Interpreting Services will accompany the clients on their journey, providing interpretation services as needed. This method is commonly used in business trips, travel, and tourism, and ensures that the client can communicate effectively with their counterparts in the destination country.

Whisper interpretation

Whisper interpretation is where the interpreter whispers the message to the target audience, ensuring that only the intended audience can hear the interpretation. This method is commonly used in sensitive situations such as legal proceedings, medical appointments, and other situations where confidentiality is of utmost importance.

Here are some examples of situations where on-site interpretation can be incredibly valuable:
Legal proceedings
Whether it's a court hearing, a deposition, or a mediation, having a trained interpreter present can ensure that everyone involved can fully understand the proceedings and participate effectively.
Medical appointments
Patients with limited English proficiency may struggle to communicate with their healthcare providers, which can compromise the quality of care they receive. On-site interpreters can help bridge that gap and ensure that patients receive the care they need.
Business meetings
In today's global economy, it's increasingly common for companies to do business with partners who speak different languages. Having an interpreter present can ensure that communication flows smoothly and that everyone can participate fully.
Educational settings
Schools and universities may need to provide interpretation services for students or families with limited English proficiency. This can include parent-teacher conferences, student meetings, or school-wide events.
Community events
Local governments or non-profit organizations may host events where interpretation services are needed to ensure that everyone can participate and feel included. This can include town hall meetings, public hearings, or cultural festivals.
