travel languages

Standard Chinese is the official language in mainland China, as well as in Taiwan, and is also known as Standard Mandarin or Modern Standard Mandarin. The language is a standardized dialect of Mandarin language, but features aspects of other dialects in its usage, including written vernacular Chinese in the language’s grammar, Mandarin dialects in its vocabulary, and the Beijing dialect in the pronunciation of its words. In mainland China, Standard Chinese is also known as Putonghua (loosely translating to “common speech”), while in Taiwan the language is referred to as Guoyu, which loosely translates to “national language.”

What is the difference between consecutive & simultaneous interpretation?

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

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.
