Translations Coronavirus, medical translations
By Frédéric Ibanez, Medical and Pharmaceutical Translations
Covid-19 (Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2; coronavirus disease 2019) is a virus that first appeared in China in 2019. The virus belongs to the strain of coronaviruses, which usually infect certain mammals or birds and normally only cause mild colds in humans. However, viruses can change (mutate) and adapt to new conditions. In the case of normal influenza viruses, experts are always assessing future mutations and developing vaccines before the start of the new influenza season to combat the most likely changes.

Online Banking
By Frédéric Ibanez, Translation of Economic and Financial Documents
Classic online banking, which allows access to personal bank accounts via the Internet, was not invented in Silicon Valley but by a consumer bank in the Düsseldorf area. In the 1980s, this small bank made it possible for a person to view his own finances online for the very first time. It began with a self-service system in the bank's foyer, enabling its customers to access their accounts around the clock. The regionally limited service has now become a worldwide system that many people no longer want to do without.

Tips for speakers with subsequent translation (consecutive interpreting)
By Frédéric Ibanez, Linguistic Services
In consecutive interpreting, the translation takes place with a time lag. The interpreter takes notes during the original talk and translates the contents of the speech at the end. This makes it easier for listeners to understand the translated content or complex relationships presented in a foreign language. This form of translation is often used for speeches to give listeners the opportunity to hear the original version themselves, even if they do not speak the foreign language perfectly.
