Consecutive interpreting is when the interpreter is located next to the speaker and translates consecutively, after each fragment of the speech. In the case of longer fragments of speech, the interpreter makes notes that allow him or her to reproduce the text of the speech accurately. In the event of shorter speeches one translator may be enough, but with longer events e.g. all-day conferences, the cooperation of two translators is advisable.
This type of interpreting requires huge concentration, the ability to process content and special note-taking skills. For these reasons, we work only with professional conference interpreters.
This form of interpreting is used during small meetings, negotiations, press conferences, trainings etc.
