At least two interpreters per working language work as one team in the booth, which is available at the venue or is set up on an ad-hoc basis.
The team formation depends on the duration of the meeting and the number of languages involved.
The interpreter hears the spoken text of the speaker from his/her headphones, can easily follow speech and events from the booth, and renders the corresponding target language interpretation of the speech passage into the microphone with a very slight time delay.
Typical situation for simultaneous interpretation:
- International conferences and symposiums
- Global meeting of a group of companies
- Depth interview (Marketing)
With the help of mobile headsets or smartphones with an appropriate application, a group of several people can receive interpreting services quietly and in parallel with the action.
Without technical aids, interpretation can be done for one to a maximum of two people.
In case of a court hearing, only this kind of interpretation is often allowed.
Whispering is a form of simultaneous interpretation that requires the highest concentration from the interpreter, which means the length of time that an interpreter can work alone is also limited.
In the case of a long assignment, two or more interpreters must be assigned as well.
Typical situations for whispering interpreting:
- Factory tour
Consecutive interpreting uses section-by-section interpretation of the spoken text.
Sections to be interpreted are rather long in a one-sided interpretation (e.g. a reception speech) and rather short in a two-sided interpretation.
The interpreter uses a note-taking technique to ensure that the content of the speech is reproduced in the target language without redundancy and correctly.
In the case of double-sided interpreting, one interpreter usually interprets in both languages alone.
This interpretation mode is often used in international business scenes.
However, the time needed for interpretation must always be taken into account.
Typical situation for consecutive interpreting:
- Conferences and meetings
- Schooling and training
- Trade talks and negotiations, fairs and exhibitions
- Site tours
- Web Meeting
