Interpreting is another service frequently requested by our customers. This verbal form of translation above all serves to support and facilitate verbal communication between various parties. This form of verbal translation is typically associated with conferences and live training events, for example. In this field, a distinction is drawn between three different forms of interpreting: simultaneous, consecutive and liaison interpreting.
Simultaneous interpreting describes the simultaneous translation of spoken language. One popular form of simultaneous interpreting is chuchotage, or whispered interpreting. The interpreter sits between the discussion partners and whispers the interpretation to them. Consecutive interpreting refers to a time-delayed translation of spoken language into another language.
The last form of interpreting, termed liaison interpreting, is a special form of consecutive interpreting. After the speaker finishes each statement it is directly translated by the interpreter. This form of interpreting is often used in business meetings and usually takes place in both languages.
