Simultaneous interpreting

Interpreting spoken text simultaneously requires thorough preparation and a high degree of concentration. Simultaneous interpreters usually work in teams of two or three per language combination in soundproof interpreting booths. They work in turns, alternating at regular intervals, usually every thirty minutes. The audience listens to the interpreters through headsets (at conferences) or over a loudspeaker (e.g. during television broadcasts).
Simultaneous interpreting is the most frequent and convenient solution for events of all types.

Consecutive interpreting

In consecutive interpreting, spoken text is translated with a time delay without an interpreter’s booth. The interpreter normally stands next to the speaker. However, this doubles the amount of time it takes for speakers to make their presentations. Depending on the subject and the duration of the event, consecutive interpreters work alone or in teams of two.
This type of interpreting is best suited for roundtable discussions or negotiations involving relatively small numbers of participants.

Whispering interpreting

Whispering interpreting and liaison interpreting are a form of simultaneous interpreting without special technical equipment and generally involve a maximum of one or two listeners. In such settings, unfavorable acoustic conditions often prevent interpreters from providing optimal translations. Moreover, the sound of the interpreter’s voice can prevent both interpreter and speaker from understanding what is being said and can be disturbing to all concerned.
This is an inconvenient form of interpreting that should be used for brief meetings only.
