In-Person and Online Persian Interpretation Services
Communicate seamlessly with millions in the Middle East and Central Asia with Persian interpretation services.
English is often seen as a global lingua franca of sorts, and it is often used as the medium of international communication. But don’t let that fool you—in fact, most people in the world don’t speak English. This is also true in Iran, which ranks as having “moderate proficiency” in English, just barely surpassing the threshold of the “low proficiency” ranking. Iran is a multilingual country with numerous minority languages spoken throughout, but the official and national language is Persian, which is used as a lingua franca across the Middle Eastern nation.

More information about Persian, the second-biggest language of the Middle East
Everyone knows the biggest language in the Middle East is Arabic, but the second biggest is easily Persian. It may surprise you to know that the languages aren’t even remotely related, despite using the same writing system. In fact, while Arabic is a Semitic language from the Afroasiatic family, Persian hails from the Indo-European language family, making it related to English, albeit distantly. With 70 million native speakers and another 40 million second-language speakers, Persian is primarily spoken in Iran, where it may also be called Farsi—but it’s also widespread in Afghanistan (as Dari), Tajikistan and Uzbekistan (as Tajik), Russia (as Tat), and Iraq, Turkmenistan, and Azerbaijan.
Persian grammar is relatively simple, with the language having discarded grammatical gender and retaining only two cases: nominative and accusative. With verbs marked for person, Persian tends to omit pronouns, a practice it shares with many European languages. In Persian, verbs come at the end of a sentence and are conjugated for a number of tenses and aspects.

Persian is spoken in many different countries, but don’t worry—we have skilled Persian interpreters stationed across Iran, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Iraq, Russia, and Azerbaijan.

And should you find yourself outside the Persian-speaking world, that’s fine—if you don’t mind paying extra for the transportation costs, we can fly one of our interpreters out to you.
Perhaps you’d prefer the more convenient option of online Persian interpretation services. It’s simple: all you have to do is add our interpreter to your call, whether it’s over an online telecommunications app like Zoom or Skype or the traditional landline telephone. Time zones aren’t an issue, either, given that our Persian interpreters are found around the world.
Your choice of simultaneous or consecutive Persian interpretation services
Do you need simultaneous or consecutive interpretation services for Persian? We’ll help you determine which one is best for you, but it’s important to figure it out so we can match you to the right interpretation specialist.
If you need Persian interpretation services for one-way communication, such as a presentation, speech, or television broadcast, you’ll want simultaneous interpretation. This is where the interpreter orally translates information before the original speaker has finished. It’s called simultaneous because the original speech and the interpretation are happening at the same time.
If your interpretation needs are for multi-directional communication in small groups, consecutive Persian interpretation is more appropriate. In this scenario, the interpreter listens to the speaker and translates the information to the other party (or parties) only after the original speaker has finished. The interpreter has a little more time to think about their translation, and they can ask the speaker for clarification on anything they’ve said, so this method is a bit more reliable.
We can even interpret technical subject matter to and from Persian.
If you’re concerned that your Persian interpretation professional will struggle with the esoteric subject matter in your content, don’t worry. Just specify that you want an interpreter with knowledge in your specific field, and we’ll scour our team to find the right interpreter for you. Our team is large enough that we have Persian interpreters who are experts in all sorts of supplementary disciplines.
