We Offer On-Site and Remote Interpretation Services for Bengali
Count on us for accurate, reliable, and flexible Bengali interpretation services.
If you’re a native English speaker from a country like the US, the UK, Canada, or Australia, it’s easy to dramatically overestimate the global English proficiency rate. There are more than 7,000 languages spoken around the world, and while many people do learn English as a second language, it’s only a mere 17% or so of the global population. English proficiency varies from country to country, reaching only around 10% in Bangladesh—the majority of Bengalis live their lives in their native Bengali.
But what if you need to connect with Bengali speakers in real time? Don’t worry—you don’t need to spend a fortune on Bengali grammar textbooks. All you need is our professional interpreters here at TranslationServices.com. With skilled Bengali interpreters from across Bangladesh as well as India’s West Bengal, Tripura, and Assam, we allow clients to smoothly communicate with Bengali speakers over a wide geographical area. We even have interpreters across the Bengali diaspora in the US, Europe, the Middle East, and beyond!

A convenient way to connect with Bengali speakers
South Asia is an incredibly linguistically diverse region of the world, but Bangladesh is somewhat of an exception, with more than 98% being ethnically Bengali and speaking Bengali as their native tongue. With more than 300 million native speakers and an additional 37 million second-language speakers, Bengali is the seventh-biggest language in the world. Like Hindi and many other languages in South Asia, Bengali belongs to the Indo-European language family, which means it’s technically related to English, although you certainly wouldn’t think that if you heard or saw it.
When you hear that Bengali doesn’t use grammatical gender like French or Spanish, you may think it sounds easy—but Bengali nouns are inflected according to four cases, and verbs undergo significant conjugation for tense, aspect, and mood. Unlike English and most other European languages, Bengali uses postpositions rather than prepositions, meaning they come after the noun rather than before. Another tricky aspect of Bengali is its “measure words”—words used when counting nouns that change depending on the semantic characteristics of the noun. This can make Bengali tricky for foreigners to master.
In-person Bengali interpretation services or online Bengali interpretation services?
Clients from all around the world may have different reasons for requiring Bengali interpretation services. We understand that, and that’s why we work hard to offer maximum flexibility in our Bengali interpretation services. Depending on your circumstances, on-site or remote interpretation services may work better for you. Let’s take a look at both.
No matter where you are in Bangladesh, West Bengal, Tripura, or Assam, we have a plethora of skilled Bengali interpreters eager to help you communicate smoothly with locals. Whether you’re interviewing locals for a documentary, discussing corporate plans with business partners, or holding a presentation for Bengali speakers, we can provide high-quality in-person interpretation services. And in the event that you’d like on-site Bengali interpretation services outside the Bengali-speaking part of the world, we can even fly someone out to you—provided you can cover their travel expenses, of course.
Perhaps you’d prefer remote Bengali interpretation services instead, which are accessible no matter where you are in the world. You simply need a stable internet or phone connection, and we can interpret between English and Bengali in real time in your call. This is a perfect solution for those located outside the Bengali-speaking world or who value convenience, but technical issues can sometimes cause problems.
You have the choice between simultaneous and consecutive interpretation services.
There are two key types of translation services: simultaneous and consecutive. We have specialists for both types on our Bengali team, but you’ll need to specify the type you’re looking for, so let’s take a look at the differences.
If you need Bengali interpretation services for a presentation, speech, multilingual conference, TV broadcast, or another form of largely one-way communication to a large audience, we recommend simultaneous interpretation. This is where the interpreter translates the content while the original speaker is still talking, with the interpreted speech fed to the audience through headphones or overlayed over the TV broadcast.
If, instead, you’re looking for Bengali interpretation services for a small meeting, conference, interview, or another form of multi-directional communication with a small number of people, consecutive interpretation services may be better. In this case, the interpreter relays the spoken content only after the original speaker has finished.
Simultaneous interpretation may be faster and more convenient, but consecutive interpretation tends to be more accurate. Both have advantages—let us know what you need!
Don’t worry about technical subject matter in your Bengali interpretation services.
Whether you’re a top-level business executive or an academic researcher digging deep into a niche subject, you may require your Bengali interpreter to have specialized knowledge in your field. Just let us know your discipline, and we’ll match you to the right interpreter—it’s easy because we have specialists in all sorts of fields on our Bengali interpretation team.
