Consecutive interpreters have excellent language capabilities, excellent interpersonal skills and often specialize in a selected field such as politics, legal, medical or business.
While this process is a little slower interpretation, equipment is not required. This mode of interpretation is therefore the most cost effective way to interpret between speakers.
We provide consecutive interpreters and language interpretation services for depositions, interviews, court proceedings, medical assessments, insurance claims, appointments and more.
Consecutive interpreting simply means interpreting after the initial speaker has finished.
An interpreter is present with all parties involved and listens to the speech and renders it at the end, in a different language, usually with the aid of notes.
Nowadays, consecutive interpretation services have been largely replaced by simultaneous interpreting, but it remains relevant for certain kinds of meetings such as highly technical meetings, working lunches, small groups, field trips, etc.
Well-trained consecutive interpreters can render speeches of 10 minutes or more with considerable accuracy.
