Frequently asked questions

The three most common types of interpretation are consecutive, simultaneous, and whispered (or chuchotage).

Consecutive interpretation is a low-tech, stop-and-go interpretation generally used in small meetings. While a speaker converses, an interpreter takes structured notes, waits for the interpreter to pause, and then reproduces what the speaker has said in another language.

Simultaneous interpretation is a more fluid style of interpretation where the interpreter listens, analyzes, and translates what is being said into another language in real time while the speaker speaks or signs. This style of interpretation was born and perfected as a time-saving alternative to consecutive interpretation during the Nuremberg Trials in 1945.

Whispered interpretation is a low-tech style of interpreting where an interpreter simultaneously interprets what is being said or signed, whispering the interpretation into the ear of one or two meeting participants. This type of interpretation is often used in small meetings.
