French Whispered Interpreting for Early Childhood Workshop Atendee
June 2017 – Boston, MA – Language Connections, a Boston interpretation and translation services agency, partners with local Higher Education institutions on a regular basis to provide interpreting services for various types of events. A recent program at a prominent Boston area university focused on early childhood initiatives and was attended by someone from the Bernard van Leer Foundation. This individual required whispered interpreting services in French.
The week-long program, Leading and Scaling Early Childhood Initiatives, included talks on a range of topics from early childhood Intervention methods to various case studies. We were asked to provide French interpreting services for one of the participants from the Bernard van Leer Foundation, a non-profit organization centered on efforts to improve opportunities for young, disadvantaged children.
French Whispered Interpreting Services
In order to maintain the flow of the program, our linguist was asked to provide a special mode of simultaneous interpreting for the non-English speaker attending the discussions. Unlike simultaneous interpreting, this type of interpreting, called whispered interpreting, allows the interpreter to simultaneously interpret what the speaker says directly into the ear of the listener.
This means that no equipment is required, but rather the interpreter stands or sits next to the person for whom they are interpreting and literally whispers the interpreted speech into the listener’s ear.
Usually, simultaneous interpreters work as a team, taking turns in order to ensure both flow and accuracy. In the case of this project, our expert interpreter worked alone for 8 full hours a day over the course of the program.
