Interpretation Services for Telugu: On Site and Online
There’s no better way than Telugu interpretation services to connect with Telugu speakers.
English is often touted as the “universal lingua franca,” but is that really accurate? In reality, only around 17% of the world population speaks English—hardly an all-encompassing “universal language.” So, when you’re abroad in a non-English-speaking country, you may find it difficult to connect with locals if you don’t speak their language. Take India as an example—though many Indians speak English, many more don’t. In this highly multilingual country, people speak many languages depending on their region, one of the largest being Telugu.
At TranslationServices.com, we want to help you communicate seamlessly with Telugu speakers. It’s to that end that we put together our Telugu interpretation team, composed of the top Telugu interpretation experts from India and across the Telugu diaspora. Whether you’re in Telangana or Andhra Pradesh (where Telugu is the predominant language) for business reasons, research purposes, humanitarian aid, or personal objectives, our Telugu interpretation team can help you easily reach your goals in Telugu-speaking territory.

Discovering the world’s biggest Dravidian language
India is home to more than 450 languages from several different language families, but by far the two most common are the Indo-European and Dravidian families. Telugu, native to the southeastern Indian states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, constitutes the biggest member of the Dravidian family, boasting 83 million native speakers and 13 million foreign-language speakers. Telugu speakers also form minorities in the neighboring Indian states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Orissa, and West Bengal. Furthermore, the large Telugu diaspora has brought the language to the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Myanmar, Malaysia, South Africa, Mauritius, the UAE, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia, among others.
Grammatically, Telugu is a subject-object-verb language with a rich inflection system for its three genders and seven cases. The language strictly uses suffixes to convey grammatical meaning, with no prefixes or infixes whatsoever. Telugu’s third-person pronouns distinguish between gender as well as human versus non-human referents, although the gender distinction is lost in the plural. In the first-person plural, there’s also a distinction in clusivity—in other words, two separate words for we make it clear whether the listener is included in the utterance.
Do you want Telugu interpretation services in person or via the internet?
There are many ways to interpret Telugu. With us, you can choose between in-person interpretation and remote interpretation services, depending on what works best for you. Basically, if you care more about accuracy, in-person Telugu interpretation services may be better since they’re a bit more dynamic, but if you’re more concerned with convenience or if you’re not in a Telugu-speaking area, online interpretation services may be more your speed.
We’ve taken care to hire talented Telugu interpreters from every corner of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, and the rest of the Telugu-speaking world, including the vast Telugu diaspora that exists around the world. But even if you live somewhere without a Telugu-speaking presence, don’t fret—we can arrange a flight for one of our interpreters to your location (if you’re willing to pay extra, of course).
The other possibility is remote interpretation services, which we can easily offer to anyone in the world. All you need is an internet or phone connection—our Telugu interpreter will join your call (online or over the traditional phone) and render their interpretation services in real time remotely. Since Telugu speakers can be found all around the world, you don’t have to worry about time zone differences either.
Choosing between simultaneous and consecutive interpretation for Telugu
When you order Telugu interpretation services from us, make sure you specify whether you’re looking for simultaneous or consecutive interpretation. We offer both—here’s a quick rundown of the differences.
We offer simultaneous Telugu interpretation services for presentations, speeches, TV broadcasts, multilingual conferences, and other use cases with large audiences. Our interpreter translates the original speaker’s content while they’re still speaking, so the speaker doesn’t need to pause, and the Telugu-speaking audience can understand the content with only a slight time lag.
We offer consecutive Telugu interpretation services for use cases with smaller audiences, such as small meetings, conferences, or interviews. Here, our interpreter waits for each respective speaker to finish before converting their utterances into the other language. While consecutive Telugu interpretation is a bit slower, the added intractability makes it more accurate.
Our Telugu interpreters can handle complicated subject matter.
If you need Telugu interpretation services for business or research purposes, you may be touching on highly technical content that the average Telugu interpreter wouldn’t understand. That’s no problem for us since our team is so large that we have plenty of Telugu interpreters with expertise in any number of supplementary fields. All you have to do is let us know what you want your Telugu interpreter to be specialized in.
