Forms of Interpreting
Simultaneous interpreting services are performed at the same time that the presenter is speaking. Usually rendered in a large conference setting, this type of interpreting service typically necessitates the use of special interpreting equipment. Wireless receivers with headsets enable the audience to hear the language translation of their choice.
Simultaneous interpreting requires the ability to listen, process, and convey a "translated" message", all while listening to and comprehending the speaker. It is a very tiring task, both mentally and physically. Therefore, two interpreters are needed for simultaneous interpreting. The two work together, switching off every 20 minutes, or so.
Consecutive interpreting services are usually performed in smaller settings than conferences, such as business meetings, interviews, depositions, and press conferences. The speaker presents a few sentences before pausing, then the interpreter renders what has just been said into the other language. Sound equipment is not usually required for consecutive interpreting services.
