What kind of translation services CLA provides?

What is the difference between translation and interpretation?

The translation of a document is the written change from one language into another, communicating the meaning, as well as the feeling and linguistic nuances of the original document.

Interpretations refer to the spoken word. Interpreters translate verbally consecutively or simultaneously the speech produced by the speaker. The client has the option to meet with us prior the interpretation and hand us the material to be used in the presentation or just “surprise” us, like in case of legal depositions.
