What are the types of interpreting?
Ad hoc Interpreting: It is usually used in business meetings, negotiations, international fairs. No particular equipment is necessary.
The interpreter connects the two parties, bridging language and cultural gaps.
Consecutive Interpreting: The interpreter sits or stands beside the speaker, listening and taking notes, using a special note-taking system. The speaker pauses at fixed intervals and the interpreter renders the message in the target language.
Simultaneous Interpreting: It is the most formal and complex type of interpreting. It involves an interpreter sitting in the booth with headphones and translating the speech simultaneously. It is mentally exhausting for the interpreter and it involves the job of two interpreters taking turn every 20-30 minutes.
Whispered interpreting: It is also called “chuchotage” interpreting and is one type of simultaneous interpretation, used only in some specific circumstances.
