INTERPRETING / DOLMETSCHEN / INTERPRÉTATION / INTERPRETACIÓN / INTERPRETAÇÃO / INTERPRETAZIONE
Normally used in situations where there are large numbers of people and more than two languages are spoken, such as at a conference. Interpreters work in pairs per language combination and sit in soundproof booths, interpreting at the same time as the main speaker is speaking. They speak directly into a microphone and their interpretation can be heard by delegates via headsets.
Used when there are only two languages involved and ideal for smaller meetings and events. The speaker pauses every few minutes so the interpreter can orally translate what has just been said usually with the help of taking notes. Please note this type of interpreting will make the meeting much longer as everything needs to be said twice.
A more flexible form of consecutive interpreting that is used in more informal and relaxed settings. The speaker pauses more often so the interpreter can orally translate what has been said. It is suitable for smaller groups of people, meetings between two people or when the interpreter is accompanying someone on a foreign visit, for example.
A form of consecutive interpreting where the interpreter orally translates between two languages via a telephone conference call. Suitable for telephone calls between two people or small groups of people.
