One of the most challenging kinds of translation – interpreting – demands both superior command of the spoken language, which is matched by an exhaustive knowledge of the subject, and the ability to convey the meaning fully and promptly in a way that is understandable to the target audience.
Interpreters are constantly present at international events, including business negotiations, conferences, trade shows, etc. In many ways, the success of a company hinges on the quality of interpreting.
The two kinds of interpreting services – consecutive and simultaneous – are available depending on the format of the event, the number of speakers and international attendees, as well as other potential factors.
In the most common form of interpreting, consecutive interpreters perform translation during logical pauses in the speech or one sentence at a time. The pace of consecutive interpreting is fairly comfortable for the interpreter and guarantees a highly accurate and complete translation, it takes the speaker twice as much time to make the presentation. This restricts consecutive interpreting mainly to events with a limited number of speakers:
- Business negotiations
- Briefings and news conferences
- In-house presentations
- Workshops and trainings
- Telephone negotiations
- Foreign delegations
Simultaneous interpreting is performed without interrupting the speaker, which saves time and enhances perception by the audience. This service is normally provided by a tandem of translators who take turns every 15-30 minutes. A complex and stressful process, simultaneous interpreting demands not only superior interpreting skills, but also a distinct setting which created through the employment of specialized equipment.
Simultaneous interpreting is a must for such events as:
- Roundtables and seminars
- High-profile business negotiations
- Business forums
