Like most things, interpreting services come is a few forms. Knowing which you need can be difficult. So here’s a really quick guide.

Consecutive: Here an interpreter will interpret during pauses. This is used for face-to-face situations such as meetings and court hearings.

Simultaneous: Otherwise known as conference interpreting. This is where the interpreter relays conversation while sitting in a booth. The interpreting is done in ‘real time’.

Of course nothing is ever quite that straight forward, so please give us a call if you have any specific questions about an interpreting assignment.
