Types of interpreting

Simultaneous interpreting

In simultaneous interpreting the interpreter simultaneously translates what is said from one language into another. Generally, in simultaneous interpreting interpreters work in an interpreting booth in teams of two and take turns. Simultaneous interpreting is the most common interpreting mode for conferences, multilingual events etc.

Consecutive interpreting

In consecutive interpreting the interpreter translates what has been said into the target language upon completion of each unit of a talk in the source language using notes. This mode is often used in smaller events, e.g. seminars or small conferences.

Liaison interpreting

In liaison interpreting the interpreter translates individual sentences and sets of sentences between two languages for two or more people involved in a conversation. This mode is applied e.g. in business negotiations, in court as well as in tours of plants and introductions to the handling of machinery.

Whispered interpreting

Whispered interpreting is a special type of simultaneous interpreting. The interpreter sits behind or next to the person who requires interpreting whispering what has been said into the person’s ear. During guided tours the interpreter uses a so called portable tour guide system. Whispered interpreting is only suitable for particularly small events.
