Wellington is the capital city of New Zealand. With a population of 393,000, Wellington is the second most populous city after Auckland. Named the “coolest little capital in the world”, Wellington is centre of the New Zealand film industry, as well as the political centre of the country. The city is notable for its large Pacific Island and Maori communities, and large natural harbour. The Wellington economy is driven by governmental services – New Zealand’s parliament and the head offices of all Government Ministries and Departments are all located here. Tourism is also a mainstay of the city’s economy.
Simultaneous interpreting is most commonly used at conferences. It involves two interpreters working in partnership in a booth. They listen to the speaker via a headset and interpret into a microphone for the relevant audience members to listen to via headphones. As this can be very demanding, the interpreters take turns, swapping every 15-20 minutes.
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 to assist clients who require only limited assistance in the source language. They may need technical or especially complex terminology to be interpreted into their native tongue to avoid misunderstandings but are in general comfortable listening and speaking to the source language without aid. The interpreter stands by to support the client when he/she requires communication assistance.
Telephone interpreting allows parties who are not able to meet in person to communication via telephone or video conferencing. The interpreter bridges the language gap via the telephone. Sometimes the interpreter is present in one of the two locations, and sometimes he/she is also remotely located.
