Consecutive interpreting

The interpreter generally sits or stands beside the speaker, listening and taking notes when necessary. Speaker talks and pauses to allow the interpreter to translate in the target language for a portion or the entire speaker’s message. This system is ideal for simple translation in trade consulting, lectures, press conferences, presentation for new product, formal talks, short business meeting and tourism etc.

Simultaneous interpreting

The interpreter translates the message into the target language as quickly as he/she can formulate sentences. While the source language speaker continuously speaks, the interpreter, who is often sitting in a sound-proof booth, is receiving the speech through his/her headset and speaking into a microphone to transmit the target language to the recipient’s headset. Two interpreters are often required. This system is ideal for international conferences, seminars, symposia and workshops.
