What is Consecutive Interpreting?

Consecutive interpreting is the most common form of interpreting and is used in both formal and informal settings, and it requires longer immediate memory or notes taking skills, sight translation skills of language expertise, and higher accuracy of translation.

·     The interpreter sits or stands beside the source-language speaker.

·     The speech is divided into segments,so that the interpreter can interpret in sections, i.e. consecutively.

·     While the speaker is talking, the interpreter is listening carefully and may take notesaccording to the length of the paragraphin a Long CI.

·     When the speaker pauses, the interpreter translates what has been said into the target language.

·     When the speaker pauses or stops speaking, the interpreter then renders the entiremessage naturally and completely in the target language.

For consecutive interpreting, our experienced, qualified consecutive interpreters can work both into and out of their mother tongue.
