Consecutive Interpreting: Commonly used in meetings with small groups or one-to-one meetings or interviews. The interpreter speaks after the source-language speaker has finished speaking. The speech is divided into segments, and the interpreter sits or stands beside the source-language speaker, listening and taking notes as the speaker progresses through the message. When the speaker pauses or finishes speaking, the interpreter then renders a portion of the message or the entire message in the target language.
Simultaneous or conference interpreting: The interpreter works in a soundproofed booth and provides the verbal translation in real time, immediately after something has been said. Simultaneous interpreting is generally used at major conferences and events.
Whispered Interpreting (“chuchotage”): Interpreting performed to at most two people without electronic equipment. The interpreter speaks softly using normal speech kept at a low volume. The interpreter’s mouth and the ear of the person listening must be in close proximity so as not to disturb the others in the room.
Escort Interpreting: The interpreter accompanies the client to events such as fairs and cultural events, for example, guided visits, visiting factories, tourism in cities, formal dinners, etc., where a language which the client does not speak is spoken. This kind of interpreting is generally contracted by small groups or individuals.
