- Sight Translation
In the event you have a short text you require translating, but you don't have time to wait for a full translation, you require a Sight Translator. Sight Translations differ to most other types of Interpreting as the original message is delivered to the Interpreter in written form. The Interpreter reads the document in its source language translates it to the audience's selected language and delivers the translation orally. In most cases this means the Interpreter speaks in the target language simultaneously as reading in the source language.
