Consecutive Interpreting

In consecutive interpreting, the speaker and the interpreter speak by turns. The interpreter transfers the translation of the speech to the audience with the help of the notes taken during the speech. Consecutive interpreting doesn’t require any technical equipment apart from the microphone needed when there is a big audience in a big room.

Differing from simultaneous interpreting, consecutive interpreting is preferred in committee visits, short business/media meetings, permanent missions, nonofficial meals and short workshops.
