When is escort interpreting used?

Do you need foreign guests accompanied on the territory of Bulgaria? Do you need interpreting for your business meeting or visit to various work sites?

Escort interpreting is used for these purposes. You will find more useful information in this article.

Escort interpreting is not easily framed and cannot be accurately determined. This type of interpreting changes depending on the event and the situation for which it is used.

What is escort interpreting?
Due to its informal nature, escort interpreting can be a mix of consecutive and simultaneous interpreting, at some times – simultaneous (without additional technical equipment), at others – consecutive interpreting.

In fact, for this type of interpreting, the interpreter accompanies the client during various events and assists with interpreting either all the time or only when necessary.

Interpreting for a notary public - Translation services - Interpreting - Bulgaria - Sofia - Bulgarian translation agency Arte.doc

Almost everyone has used the services of a Notary Public - a transaction for the sale of movable or immovable property, issuance of a power of attorney and / or declaration, will, contract with or without material interest, certification of a document and more.

Everything sounds and looks easy and fast, which is largely the case if everyone involved speaks the same language. But when one of the parties is a foreigner who does not speak Bulgarian well enough or does not speak it at all, a difficulty arises.

There is wondering how to proceed, wandering, looking for additional information, interpreting attempts from an acquaintance / friend who knows a foreign language, attempts to "convince" the notary that the foreigner, party to the transaction, is familiar with all the details.
All this costs unnecessary time, nerves and often additional unnecessary costs. Notaries do not allow such circumventing of the rules, because they can incur a serious fine and bear criminal liability.

What is the interpreting service for a notary public?
In its essence, this type of interpreting is consecutive interpreting.
It is used during the conclusion of a transaction before a Notary Public, in the presence of an interpreter. The interpreter interprets bilaterally the communication between the parties to the transaction.
