Certified Interpreting & Translation Services

 

We assist non-English speaking individuals in fully participating in the judicial process

Certified Interpreters United (CIU) provides interpreting and translation services for all of your needs. Whether you need a document or transcript translated and certified or a judicial certified interpreter for an arbitration case, our certified language specialists can help.

All of our interpreters have a mastery of at least two languages. They are professional individuals possessing specialized knowledge and adhere to a code of ethics. They demonstrate their mastery of skills after years of study and training through a licensing and certification process and serve the public interest in the performance of their services.

The certified interpreters possess excellent skills in simultaneous and consecutive interpreting, extensive knowledge of legal terminology and court proceedings, vocabularies in question and mental and physical stamina that consist of complex mental tasks, mental perception, storage, retrieval and generation.

Our interpreters’ skills go far beyond that of bilingualism. CIU professionals have a fluent command of both languages, they comply with the Code of Professional Conduct for Interpreters and Translators, and are trained to interpret everything that is stated or written without adding, editing, summarizing, or changing the meaning of the original message.

Modes of Interpreting

Simultaneous
Simultaneous interpreting is a running rendition of everything said in the source language into the target language. Simultaneous interpreting requires that interpreters listen and speak almost concurrently with the primary speaker whose words are being translated. In effect, interpreters are simultaneously performing two tasks in the field of language communication that are otherwise practiced separately: speech and understanding.

Consecutive
Consecutive interpreting is the “question and answer” mode in which the speaker completes a statement and the interpreter begins to interpret after the statement is completed. The consecutive mode is most often utilized with witnesses on the stand.
