Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between consecutive and simultaneous interpretation?

Knowing which type of interpreting service you need for your project is a crucial element for a successful interpreting project.

Read more

Consecutive interpreting is where the speaker pauses after several phrases or sentences, allowing the interpreter time to relay the message to the audience. Usually consecutive interpreters are a popular option for informal and some formal occasions including: interviews, film sets, client-attorney meetings, medical, legal depositions, and photo shoots.

Simultaneous interpreting is when participants wear headphones and an interpreter listens to information and relays it while the speaker continues to speak. Typically, simultaneous interpreters are used in formal, large group settings including: large conferences, conventions, business or board meetings, diplomatic and other official business meetings, and tours.

How many interpreters do I need for my event?

Depending on your event, you may need more than one interpreter.

Read more

If it’s an all-day event, you may need multiple interpreters. The reason for using multiple interpreters is to minimize interpreter fatigue. Converting meaning of the language and necessary cultural mediation and applying that to a second language is a mentally taxing task. You also need to let your language service provider know what languages you require and whether or not the subject matter is specialized, for example interpreting for a medical conference will require more specialized skills than for a general business event.

If you have more questions on the exact number of interpreters needed for your project, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are here to help!
