After an initial briefing by you, we will advise you on the best type of interpreter for your requirements; ad hoc, consecutive or simultaneous.
A Consecutive Interpreter is the most commonly requested interpreting service and is also the simplest to arrange. Here, a Consecutive Interpreter will wait until the speaker has finished before translating what was said into the other person’s native language. This is ideal for less formal situations, such as business visits.
With Simultaneous Interpreters they work in teams in sound-proof booths and they interpret what the other person is saying at the same time they are speaking with delegates listening through headsets. This method of Interpretation is ideal for more formal situations such as conferences, courts etc.
