Interpreting: Methods and technical equipment, an overview

Simultaneous interpreting

This is the best-known mode of interpreting. In simultaneous interpreting the interpreters sit in booths and continuously convey the words they hear into the target language while the speaker is talking. The interpreters work in teams, which means that there are at least two interpreters per language.

Whispering interpreting

Whispering interpreting is similar to simultaneous interpreting but without any interpreting equipment, and is suitable for one or two listeners. An interpreter can also whisper for more than two listeners using a tour guide system.

Accompanying/escort interpreting

Accompanying interpreting is suitable for visits to trade fairs and tours by small groups.


Consecutive interpreting

In consecutive interpreting, the interpreter relays the message once the speaker has finished speaking, either after a few sentences or after longer passages. This mode of interpreting is suitable for business negotiations, book presentations, press conferences, after-dinner speeches, welcoming addresses and interviews.
