What form/s of interpretation can
- 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 used for smaller events such as business meetings, discussions, court cases and hearings and other business visits. It may also be used during panel sessions at conferences. It involves the interpreter first listening (often making notes) and subsequently communicating the message into the target language when the speaker has either taken a pause, or when time is given for them to interpret. Consecutive interpreting is the most commonly requested form of interpreting. Consecutive interpreting may involve switching language direction often.
- Facilitating interpreting is used when a client has some previous knowledge of the source language. The interpreter is on hand to assist should the client require it but will not continuously translate as with consecutive or simultaneous interpreting. Often, difficult or technical terminology will be unknown and the interpreter will assist by clarifying the term in the client's native tongue. A facilitating interpreter essentially ensures that no misunderstandings occur and provides relief for the client from the fatigue of speaking and listening in a foreign language.
- Telephone interpreting is just what it sounds like. An interpreter assists two parties, who are not able to meet in person, to communication with one another over the telephone or via video conferencing. Sometimes the interpreter is present in one of the two locations, sometimes he/she is located somewhere apart from both parties. The interpreter assists in both language directions.
