Modes of Interpretation

Interpreting Services - Consecutive Interpreting
Consecutive Interpreting

Consecutive interpreting occurs between breaks or natural pauses in conversation, when a professional interpreter will provide an oral rendition of what was said in the target language of the audience. Consecutive interpreters are ideal for small-scale settings and face-to-face meetings where only two languages are being used (usually English and one other language). They are commonly used at:

 

Medical and Legal Appointments

Court Hearings

One-on-One Meetings

Small Groups such as Workshops, Business Meetings, Interviews, Press Conferences, or Teleconferences

Interpreting Services - Simultaneous Interpreting
Simultaneous Interpreting

Also known as U.N.-style interpreting, simultaneous interpreting services are perfect for working with large gatherings at conferences and symposia as well as executive training programs. As this mode of interpreting saves time, it is preferred for large events in which a great deal of information has to be conveyed and two or more languages are involved.

Simultaneous interpreters generally work in pairs, and utilize special equipment to ensure an uninterrupted flow of interpreted speech to listeners via wireless headsets. Please visit our interpreting equipment page to learn more about rental options.

Interpreting Services - Whisper Interpreting
Whisper Interpreting

Also called by its French name, “chuchotage,” whispering interpretation is used in small meetings and informal settings. It is often a technique of choice when only two languages are being used (usually English and one other language) and a small number of foreign language speakers need interpretation (not more than one or two). Whispering interpreting is suitable for:

 

Business Meetings and Negotiations

Site Visits (Workshops, Factories, Facilities, School Campuses etc.)

One-on-One or Small Group Meetings

 

Whispering interpreting doesn’t require special equipment, such as booths, headphones or microphones. The interpreter usually sits beside the guest – or in the case of site visits, walks with the guest – and whispers the interpretation to the person directly.
