  • When is consecutive interpretation used?

Consecutive interpretation is usually the technique of choice for:

  • Court hearings
  • Keynote conference speeches
  • Conference calls
  • Tribunals
  • Arbitrations
  • Depositions
  • Interviews

 

  • What is consecutive interpreting?
Consecutive interpreters wait for the speaker to pause before interpreting. The interpreter may interpret after every sentence, or may take notes and then interpret several minutes of speech at once. Consecutive interpreters are bilingual by definition – but just being bilingual isn’t enough.

Professional interpreters invest years in training and practice to reach the standards we require.

 

  • What are the Pros & Cons of using consecutive interpreters?

PROS

Consecutive interpreting is easy to set up – it requires no special equipment, no booths or headphones or microphones. It is therefore very portable and convenient.

Consecutive interpreters are most helpful where only two languages are being used (usually English and one other language).

CONS
If meetings involve many different languages, consecutive interpreting won’t be the right technique – in these cases, you need simultaneous interpreting.

The main disadvantage of consecutive interpretation is that it doubles the time of the meeting.

Consecutive interpreting does not happen in real-time as the speaker must pause to allow the interpreter to speak. And it relies on the notes that the interpreter will have taken so it is more subject to content distortion.
