Whispering Interpretation


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.


  If meetings involve many different languages, consecutive interpreting won’t be the right choice, instead you’ll need simultaneous interpreting.
  The main limitation 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. It relies on the notes that the interpreter will have taken so it is more subject to content distortion.

What is Whispering Interpretation?

Whispering interpretation is used when the meeting is taking place in one language (English, for example) and one or two delegates speak a different language.

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.
