The Maldives is one of the premier travel destinations of the world and over the recent years the Maldives has opened various investment opportunities for international investors. Additionally, a number of international organizations are actively engaged in the Maldives.


To provide Dhivehi or Maldivian interpreting services in the Maldives, a comprehensive understanding of the country’s geography is paramount. The Maldives consists of around 1190 islands scattered across the Indian Ocean. Accordingly, logistical planning is necessary to provide interpreting services in the Maldives. DLS is based in the Maldives and this allows our team to meticulously plan to successfully complete your interpreting assignments.

Simultaneous Interpreting

Simultaneous interpreting involves oral translation of the speaker’s speech instantaneously by the interpreter from the source language to the target language. Simultaneous interpreting is highly technical and challenging as the interpreter has to interpret whilst listening to the ongoing speech.


Simultaneous interpreting is most commonly utilized in conferences and meetings where the interpreter relays the messages usually through microphones.


By utilizing the Dhivehi interpreting or Maldivian interpreting services offered by DLS, you can instantly communicate with Maldivians productively.

Consecutive Interpreting

Why Choose DLS for Dhivehi Language Interpreting Services?

Consecutive interpreting is the most popular and reliable form of interpreting. Unlike simultaneous interpreting, in consecutive interpreting the interpreter has time to compose and deliver the interpretation of the speech.

DLS interpreting team includes professionals who have experience in consecutive interpreting for Her Majesty's Courts of Justice of England and Wales.


Normally consecutive interpreting is carried out in face-to-face settings. However, consecutive interpreting is also useful via phone. In addition to meetings, consecutive interpreting is utilized by officials, business executives, lawyers, doctors and investors when dealing with local clients and organizations.


If you want to close a business deal or if you want to convey a particular message, then use our interpreters for precise and immaculate delivery of your message through consecutive interpreting.
