Interpreting Styles

The timing of the interpreting between the speaker and the interpreter can vary depending on the environment. We interpret in the way that is best for you and your circumstances. The following styles are common and other options may be available, contact our no-hassle support team for personalized assistance.

Consecutive Interpretation

Consecutive interpreting is when the speaker and the interpreter take turns talking. This is good for any size environment where information can be provided in chunks. The pauses between languages allows a moment for each participant to really absorb what has been said, and to focus on understanding. It also allows opportunity for questions or feedback, if desired.

Simultaneous Interpretation

When the speaker does not have time to pause between concepts, or there is a diverse audience where everyone needs the information at the same time, then simultaneous interpretation may be the best choice. Often in this situation additional equipment is needed like a translation booth, headphones, a microphone, transmitter, and receiver. Depending on the environment and audience, these items may be different or unnecessary for American Sign Language since it is visual instead of audible.
