Interpreting

Chaperone Interpreting

If your customers are visiting you and you need someone to accompany them to the local market, show them around, ensure the local auto or shopkeepers does not fleece them and generally help them spend a carefree time in your city, our chaperone interpreters are just what you need. They will make sure your customers go back with happy memories of your city.

Consecutive Interpreting

This is the most basic and common type of interpretation, in which the interpreter facilitates communication between two or more speakers. This works best in limited or smaller groups of people such as meetings, presentations or internal events where the listeners all understand one of two languages.

Sales Interpreting

Ever wished you could speak your customer’s language so that you could sell to them more effectively. Well our Sales Interpreting service is tailored to meet this exact need. Depending on the language, our Interpreters can either visit your office or then be available on conference so that you can sell to your customers in their language.

Simultaneous Interpreting

This is probably the most complex form of interpreting where the Interpreter translates while the speaker is in the process of speaking. Simultaneous Interpreting requires the use of microphones for the speaker, a headset and microphone in a soundproof booth for the interpreter and special headsets for those listening to the translation.

Sign language Interpreting

As a Customised service and with adequate lead-time, we can arrange for sign language interpreters for English or a local Indian language.

Transcription

Got audio or video files to transcribe? We will do it. We offer time-coded transcriptions of audio or video files in several languages. There are several transcription companies in the market, but BITS is different because of our multilingual capabilities in offering these service. Not only can we transcribe the recording, but we can also translate the transcribed text into a language of your choice.

We have extensive experience working on interview, legal, medical and conference transcription. All transcribed content is thoroughly proofread and checked against the original audio to ensure the final output meets the highest standard.

Be it old VHS tapes, DVDs, CDs or live streaming videos even, we can handle pretty much all formats including MP3, DSS, DS2, WAV, WMA, AMR, MOV, AIFF and many more.

Cross-cultural Consulting

How many times does one bow when greeting the Japanese? How much is one supposed to tip in restaurants in France? When dealing with people of a different nationality, it is very important to know more about their culture to ensure you do not commit a social faux pas.

Consult us and we will tell you all you want to know. Where to shop for cheap stuff in London or the main tourist attractions in Africa are just a few of the freebies we will throw into every session.

Consulting

Writing content to minimise translation cost

You create content to communicate with customers and stakeholders. You use the best writers you have access to. Different departments within your company use different writers who might possibly not even be connected. But how does that matter? They all write really well.

Somewhere along the way, you realise you need to get some content translated to reach out to markets that do not speak your language. And the translation cost estimate almost makes you jump out of your seat!

You never imagined it will cost that much. Was there even a way to ensure the translation costs would stay minimal levels? Contact us to know how to write content that ensures significant savings on translation costs.

Consulting

What if we told you that, depending on your use case, there are options available that are cheaper than professional translators but way better in terms of quality than Google Translate?

Reach out to our Language Technology Initiatives Team and they will help you find a solution that will work.
