GeoFluent Interpreter™ On-Site Interpretation Services

GeoFluent Interpreter On-Site Interpretation Services include both consecutive and simultaneous interpretation styles.

In consecutive interpretation, the interpreter speaks after the source-language speaker has finished speaking. This divides the speech into segments. Simultaneous interpretation requires the use of equipment; the interpreter wears a headset and sits in a booth, speaking into a microphone to convey the message of the source-language speaker in real time. Participants wear headphones in the audience to hear the interpreter.

Whether consecutive or simultaneous, GeoFluent Interpreter On-Site Interpretation Services bridges language gaps to enable effective multilingual communications and better experiences. Our combination of highly specialized and skilled interpreters, complete event management, equipment services, and cutting-edge conference technology provide expert interpretation services on-site in conference centers and boardrooms across the globe.

Every GeoFluent Interpreter On-Site Interpretation Services client has a dedicated customer success manager that understands their organization and its unique needs. This dedicated resource will handle every detail of the program, from hand-selecting interpreters, arranging equipment assistance, to working directly with meeting and conference venues to ensure success.

Lionbridge has over 30 years of extensive interpretation experience across all industries, including healthcare, insurance, financial services, technology, manufacturing, and government. Our diverse language mix and large network of interpreters ensure that quality interpretation service can be provided worldwide.

GeoFluent Video Remote Interpretation

Lionbridge provides on-demand Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) across major languages, as well as for American Sign Language.

The VRI service connects users to qualified and experienced interpreters via a cloud-based app accessible by any internet-enabled PC, Mac, smartphone, or tablet.

Lionbridge’s VRI enables a face to face interaction without having the interpreter present. The solution is staffed by our network of professional interpreters who will appear professional in speak and appearance.
