Translation of telephone conversations

Translation of telephone conversations is one of the oral types of translation when the interpreter participates remotely in the conversation or uses some special means of communication. Nowadays, altogether with the development of commercial sphere and reinforcements of the foreign investments this type of translation has acquired a wide distribution not only among the big companies, but also in the sphere of small business.

However, as well as for all types of translations, the translation of telephone conversation has its own peculiarities. Here it is important to use the proper equipment that can help to organize the communication according to the following scheme: “interlocutor 1 – interpreter – interlocutor 2” in such a way that all the three parties could hear well each other. The interpreter plays in this scheme the role of a “decoder”, who decodes the information from one language to another, however, he/she has no right to participate directly in the conversation, and he/she just “continues” the interlocutors’ speech.

Among the difficulties of such kind of translation one can state the following: difficulty of perceiving the information due to the improper accent, speech peculiarities of the interlocutor, impossibility of seeing the interlocutor, lack of time to think about how this or that phrase should be translated and so on. It is also important to adhere to the norms of business ethics and the ethics of translation; these are the elements that directly define the success of negotiations.

The interpreter specializing in this field of translation should have a good command of a vast vocabulary to be able to express the interlocutors’ opinion in a proper and accurate way, and have deep knowledge in different spheres of business activity.
