With a population of 14.1 million, Istanbul is the largest city in Europe as well as the largest in Turkey. The city is divided into a European side - the commercial, economic and historical centre - and an Asian side. As the largest urban centre in Europe and the sixth in the world, Istanbul has become a hub international business, as well as cultural diversity.
The numerous international conferences and events which take place here every year are opportunities for business people, academics and experts from all over the world to gather together to discuss current issues and generate new ideas. On these occasions, language barriers may arise and interpreters may be required to facilitate the flow of communication.
Simultaneous interpreting most often involves two interpreters as the work can be very mentally tiring. Located in a booth, the interpreters listen to the speaker via a headset and interpret into a microphone simultaneously. This is the form of interpreting used during UN meetings, and is often available at international conferences. It is also usually only in one language direction.
Consecutive interpreting is probably the most common type of interpreting and is widely used. It is used for business discussions, negotiations, contract exchanges, commercial discussions, legal, technical or engineering discussions, medical or court hearings or on site inspections. The interpreter listens to the speaker, often making notes, and delivers the meaning in the target language afterwards. If a speech is delivered, the interpreter may wait until a pause or the end, at which point they deliver a translation relatively quickly. Consecutive interpreting may also be used at conferences for panel discussions, Q&A sessions or private discussions between parties - at a stall or elsewhere.
Facilitating interpreting is used when a client has limited source language skills but requires technical or in depth terminology to be clarified in their native tongue to avoid misunderstandings. The facilitating interpreter is there primarily to ensure communication is effective and relieve the client from the fatigue of speaking in a foreign tongue.
Telephone interpreting allows parties of different nationalities, who are not able to meet in person, to communication via telephone or video conferencing. The interpreter bridges the gap. Sometimes an interpreter is present in one of the two locations, and sometimes he/she is also located somewhere apart from both parties.
