The interpreters working for the translation agency Verticia constantly participate in various conferences, seminars and individual meetings. We always ask our clients to provide as much information about the event which will take place as possible. Hence, we always closely cooperate with the client and discuss all additional terms that guarantee high quality interpretation services.
Consecutive interpreting. Interpreting after the speaker has finished. The interpreter sits with the delegates, listens to the speech and renders it, at the end, in a different language, generally with the aid of notes. In the modern world consecutive interpreting has been largely replaced by simultaneous, but it remains relevant for certain kinds of meetings (e.g. technical meetings, working lunches, small groups, field trips). Well-trained interpreters can render speeches of 10 minutes or more with great accuracy.
Simultaneous interpreting. Interpreting while the delegate is speaking. The interpreter works in a soundproof booth with at least one colleague. The speaker in the meeting room speaks into a microphone and the interpreter receives the message through a headset and renders it into a microphone almost simultaneously. The delegates in the meeting room select the relevant channel to hear the interpretation in the language of their choice.
Whispered simultaneous interpreting. The interpreter is seating or standing among the delegates and interprets simultaneously directly into the ear of the delegates. Whispered interpretation can be used only for very few delegates sitting or standing close together. It is used mainly in bilateral meetings or in groups where only a few delegates not share a common language.
Whispered interpreting is often used instead of consecutive in order to save time. Sometimes, the whispering interpreter will use a headphone in order to get the best possible sound from the original speaker.
Interpreting by phone. The interpreter renders the information presented by the client by phone. The information received by phone is rendered to the client.
