Consecutive interpreting

This type of interpreting is used for events such as business meals, local events or small groups The interpreter waits to talk until the speaker pauses and then communicates the content in another language, generally with the aid of notes (using a special note-taking technique). It is used in a “face-to-face” situation.
In other words, this is an interpreting service that is provided once the speaker has finished talking.

Simultaneous interpreting

This type of interpreting is often used for events that involve a large number of people. Simultaneous interpreting is the most efficient way to convey content to your listeners in multiple languages without major delays. Simultaneous interpreting requires the use of technical aids such as interpreting booths with interpreting technology and technicians. This enables a more or less unlimited number of people to listen at the same time.

Whispered interpreting

This type of interpreting is used for events with a small number of people (max. 2 participants). The interpreter sits between the participants and interprets simultaneously into the ear of the participants.
For successful whispered interpreting, the participants and the interpreter must sit closely together because there is a certain amount of background noise.
Whispered interpreting is a major challenge for interpreters because they are at the mercy of room acoustics and have to filter out ambient noise.
In other words, this is an interpreting service that is provided while the speaker is talking.

Remote interpreting

Remote interpreting means translating via streaming/video or telephone conference. After all, an interpreter does not always have to be on site for his or her assignment. Technically, there are versatile solutions for this nowadays.

Telephone interpreting (via conference call on a landline, cell phone or online solution) involves consecutive, i.e. time-delayed, alternating translation.

There are now numerous tools and software for video or online interpreting. They provide a relatively easy and cost-effective way to translate simultaneously into different languages. Important are a stable internet connection, good audio quality and knowledge about the software used.
