We also supply and install the necessary equipment including sound insulated booths, sound consoles, microphones and headsets.

There are different types of interpretation of which Simultaneous Interpreting and Consecutive Interpretation are the most common ones. While simultaneous interpreters translate the spoken messages almost instantaneously, as the speaker is speaking, consecutive interpreters translate the messages as and when the speaker pauses to allow interpretation.

Up until the end of World War II, consecutive interpreting was the preferred mode of interpretation. Nuremberg war trials of 1945 are regarded as the first large scale international usage of simultaneous interpreting in several languages. But what led to the successful entry of simultaneous interpretation in the international landscape were three events of huge international importance. First, the founding of the United Nations in 1945, second, the establishment of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in 1949, and third, the establishment of the European Coal and Steel Community in 1952.

As United Nations had allowed discussions to happen in five official languages which were, Chinese, French, English, Russian and Spanish, simultaneous interpretation during such meetings had become a necessity. However it was the rapid expansion of European communities, which held almost 9000 meetings every year in 9 languages, that helped propagate and sky rocket the need of armies of simultaneous interpreters. Further due to technological advancements such as the widespread use of televisions, where seconds counted and additional time needed for consecutive interpreting was disliked, simultaneous interpreting further advanced and gained importance.

Simultaneous Interpreting

Simultaneous interpretation allows communication of speech from one language to another in real time. It allows multi lingual presentations and conversations to flow naturally and without delay. Listeners of simultaneously interpreted speech generally use wireless audio receivers to hear the translated speech. This unique advantage of simultaneous interpreting over consecutive interpreting has helped fuel its dramatic gitemth in all spheres of interpretation, including multilingual conferences of international organizations or during multilingual meetings between businessmen, scientists and professionals.

For conferences and larger meetings.

Consecutive Interpreting

In consecutive interpreting, the interpreter is given sufficient time to analyze the context of the source speech. This additional time aided along with the consecutive interpreters memory and special interpreting notes, consecutive interpreters facilitate far more detailed translation. Thus consecutive interpreting is required in meetings of foreign ministries and large corporation, where accuracy is of crucial importance. For example, consecutive conference interpreting was extensively used during arms control negotiations between the United States and the former Soviet Union, which also led to the SALT and START treaties. The reason why consecutive conference interpreting was used during these meetings was because of the grave importance of details which if lost during the course of interpretation, could have meant losses amounting to billions of dollars and loss of lives as well.

For meetings and presentations with a small audience.

Whispering Interpreting

Whispered interpreting is a form of simultaneous interpreting in which the interpreter sits in the conference room, next to the delegate or delegates, who need the interpreting or translations. Whispered interpreter first listens to the speech and then interprets the speech simultaneously and whisper it into the ears of delegate or delegates. Whispered interpreting can only be used for very few delegates sitting or standing together and is often used in bilateral meetings.

Whispering interpreting or ‘chuchotage’ is used when one or two people do not understand the source language.

Liaison or bilateral interpreting

Consecutive interpreting requires collaboration between the speaker and the consecutive interpreter. It begins with the interpreter listening to few minutes of a speech segment, taking notes and then delivering that segment into the target language. Once the first segment is complete, speaker resumes and completes the second segment after which the whole process is repeated, right until the end of the speech.

For small business meetings.
