TYPES OF INTERPRETING

This is an overview of the different types of interpreting. I will be pleased to advice you on the mode that fits your requirements best.

In simultaneous mode, a speech is transferred orally from one language to another at the same time. Interpreters usually work in a soundproof booth. Their listeners hear them through headphones. Other forms are simultaneous interpreting through portable audio guide systems or whispering interpreting.

 

Simultaneous interpreting requires full concentration. Therefore, interpreters work in pairs and take turns after about 25 minutes.

Consecutive interpreters stand or sit next to the speaker. They listen carefully and after about two to eight minutes they interpret what has been said. Notes are used as a memory aid.

 

Compared to simultaneous interpreters, a consecutive interpreter is not only heard, but also seen.

Liaison interpreting is used for meetings with few participants, for example an appointment with clients and business partners or between a doctor and his/her patient. Usually, short sections are interpreted between two languages.

 

A professional interpreter also pays attention to turn-taking and intervenes immediately in case of misunderstandings.
