Face to face Italian interpretation

There are three primary techniques used in face to face interpretation: consecutive, simultaneous, and whispered interpreting.

Consecutive means “following one after the other in order”.

Simultaneous means “occurring at the same time”.

Whispered means spoken “softly with little or no vibration of the vocal cords”.

Interpret is to act as an interpreter between speakers of different language.

Simultaneous interpreting

I listen to the speaker and interpret the message as he or she is speaking. Typically, I wear a headset while sitting in a soundproofed booth, and I deliver my translation via microphone. Delegates who require interpretation into their native language can hear me in their own wireless headsets as the keynote speaker continues to talk.
In simultaneous translation, I share the booth with a professional colleague.

large international events, large conferences, and meetings.

Consecutive interpreting

The source-language speaker talks for a few minutes at a time, then pauses for me to interpret the message for the audience. I speak only while he or she pauses.

I will either sit or stand beside the source-language speaker. Depending on the length of the speech and its subject matter, I either take notes or memorise the message to be conveyed.

one-on-one meetings, small group settings, highly technical meetings, field trips, working lunches.

Whispered interpreting

I am beside or standing among the delegates, interpreting directly into the ear of the listener while the speaker continues to talk.

Whispering saves time compared to consecutive because there is no need to pause for interpretation.
Higher accuracy can be ensured if I wear headphones in order to get the best possible sound from the source-language speaker.

when only a few people need the service, if the necessary equipment for simultaneous interpreting is not available, bilateral meetings.
