Consecutive interpreting is sometimes called “listen before talk” interpretation. The interpretation happens when the original speaker takes a pause, generally every 5 minutes. This allows the interpreter to translate the speech into the target language.
While the speaker is talking, the interpreter takes notes using shorthand and professional note-taking techniques.
Consecutive interpreting does not require any technical interpretation equipment, which makes it a more cost-effective interpretation service compared to simultaneous interpretation.
Consecutive interpretation is the best option during events like:
- Press conferences
- Working breakfasts and lunches
- Smaller meetings and conferences, lasting up to two hours
