Consecutive Interpreting


For one-to-one meetings or small group settings, consecutive interpreting is normally the most appropriate option. This type of interpreting is used in a variety of scenarios, for example during a medical consultation, a meeting with a solicitor or if there is a small business meeting where one or more of the participants do not speak the same language.


A consecutive interpreter will interpret back and forth between two people, or sometimes between small groups of people. The interpreter will wait for a pause from the source speaker to interpret the information to the listener. Consecutive interpreting usually only involves one language pair and will be bidirectional, with the interpreter working back and forth between the two different languages. Occasionally, when more than language pair is required, an interpreter may whisper information to a participant to avoid interruption or confusion

Simultaneous Interpreting

Simultaneous interpreting often takes place during conferences and can involve many interpreters simultaneously interpreting the source language into one of a number of different target languages. This type of interpreting is normally used when addressing a large number of people. A typical example of when this type of interpreting requirement is used is the conferences for the European Commission. Simultaneous interpreting may also be required during live media broadcasts or during high profile court cases.


Simultaneous interpreters will often work in a soundproof booth or a room separate to the speaker, receiving the source dialogue via a headset. Their interpretation will then be transmitted to the relevant listeners via a microphone. Normally cameras and screens are also required for the interpreters to have sight of the speaker. With interpreters in multiple languages, those listening to the speech can then select the language they require, whilst still being present with the speaker. Simultaneous interpreting is normally completed in just one direction, from specified source language to a target language and is therefore not suitable for an interactive discussion.
