You are organizing a meeting with foreigners in attendance, like a business meeting or conference? You are meeting foreign business partners, and you need assistance? You are organizing an event with important guests who do not speak Bulgarian? You are conducting a training with a foreign lecturer on the introduction of new technologies in your production? You are signing a deal for the purchase of property with a foreigner before a Notary Public?

For these cases, as well as others, you need an interpreter.

You can often have the following problems when in need of interpreting services:
  • Confusion about the type of interpreting you need;
  • Wading through a stream of proposals from translation agencies with an inquiry form for which you need to wait for an answer and not receive information at the moment
  • Uncertainty about how to select an interpreter.
  • Lack of confidence in the selected service provider;

What are the main types of interpreting?
  • Consecutive interpreting – read more information here (линк към статията)
  • Simultaneous interpreting – read more information here (линк към статията)
  • Escort interpreting
  • Interpreting for a Notary Public
For each of these types of interpreting, you can choose to trust a freelance interpreter or a translation agency which offers interpreting services.

How to choose the right interpreter?
The most important criterion when choosing an interpreter is proficiency in both languages. The interpreter must be aware of the linguistic nuances of the languages, and any existing dialects and regional differences in the language.

What skills should an interpreter have?
There are three main skills required for a good interpreter, besides the proficiency in both languages.

  1. Active listening (Understanding)
  2. Information analysis
  3. Recreation (Communication)

The interpreter must be able to listen actively. Interpreters listen differently, as their purpose is not to respond to what is heard or to participate in the conversation, but to recreate it accurately and authentically in another language.

Analysis or note-taking is necessary for consecutive interpreting. It is important that the interpreter is able to prioritize, distinguishing between primary and secondary information. In this way the interpreter can take brief notes not to read, but to help their memory along while speaking.

During simultaneous interpreting, the interpreter must have the unique ability to listen carefully while interpreting in order not to fall behind the speaker. This requires from the interpreter the ability to largely predict what the speaker is going to say, so that the listeners can hear the interpreted speck as closely to the original as possible.

The third and last action of the interpreter is recreation. This requires good short-term memory, understanding of the notes and good communication skills.

A crucial aspect of interpreting is that the interpreter be able to reproduce the speaker's speech as if it were their own - maintaining a natural rhythm of speech, but at the same time preserving the tone and manner of the speaker, in order to accurately convey their intention.
