Take a moment and see if you can wrap your brain around this… According to Dictionary.com, the word run has over 150 different meanings. Let me say that again…not 5. Not 50. Not even 100. Run can be used and defined in more than 150 different ways. Verbs with objects. Verbs without objects. Verb phrases. Nouns. Adjectives. Idioms.
to go quickly by moving the legs more rapidly than at a walk and in such a manner that for an instant in each step all or both feet are off the ground.

while running or in a hurry: I usually eat breakfast on the run.

And that’s just a few examples. Needless to say, run is a very versatile word. Every meaning and usage is very similar, yet slightly different. Now imagine the rest of the thousands of words available in the English language. It’s a headache waiting to happen.
The good news? You’ve got options. The bad news? You’ve got a lot of options. So when it comes to your international clients and your business, the question is not “do I need an interpretation service?” but rather “what kind of interpretation service is best for me?”
Not to further complicate matters, but allow me to introduce two more options: live interpretation and remote interpretation. To interpret, to explain, to make clear and meaningful, to bridge the gap of understanding between two persons; this is essential and non-negotiable if you wish to conduct good business and serve your clients well. But how you go about it is up to you.
At CORE Languages, we provide two options. Live interpretation involves placing an interpreter right in the middle of the action. A live interpreter is able to communicate much more than spoken words. He or she can also read body language and emotions. Tone of voice is also much easier to communicate if the interpreter is there in person and on site. A live interpreter can react much quicker to any changes in the message being delivered. However, one significant drawback is that Live Interpretation costs more.
On the other hand, we also provide Remote Interpretation services. This form of interpretation is much more convenient and cost effective. With this option an interpreter is able to work via phone, Skype, conference call, etc. Travel is cut out, which means more speakers of various languages are available. There is virtually no limit to the languages that can be bridged with Remote Interpretation.
The choice now is yours. What are your needs? Which languages are you needing to connect? Are your clients local or overseas? Whatever your communication needs are, at CORE Languages we have solutions that fit directly to your situation. Give us a call so that we can make your day easier by bridging those language gaps.
