- What is whispering interpreting?
The interpreter sits beside the delegate – or in the case of site visits, walks with the delegate – and whispers the interpretation to him or her during the meeting. It’s a less formal type of language interpretation.
- What are the pros & cons of a whispering interpreter?
Whispering interpreting requires no special equipment, no booths or headphones or microphones. It is convenient and informal.
Best where only two languages are being used (usually English and one other language).
It is most helpful when a small number of foreign language speakers need interpretation – not more than one or two.
For larger or more complex meetings, you may need a different technique of language interpretation.
Whispers may create a background noise that may become annoying for the other meeting participants.
