What is Simultaneous Interpretation

A setting in which the interpreter and the speaker speaks at the same time is known as simultaneous interpreting.Generally, simultaneous interpreting is from English into the second language, because it is intended to enable the recipient to understand what is going on. Sometimes, an interpreters its in sound-proof booths and listens to the conference through headphones while at the same time interpreting into a microphone to a target language through headsets.

Every year numerous multi-lingual conferences are hosted in Houston. Some of the instances of simultaneous interpreting are at conferences, Lectures, presentations or during high-profile trials in court.

What is Consecutive Interpretation

Consecutive interpreting happens when a person who is talking,stops speaking for the consecutive interpreter to repeat what has been said in the target dialect.Consecutive interpreters provide slightly delayed interpreting of the spoken word. They sometimes take notes, and then reproduce what was said in the target language.

For instance, in the event you are holding a conference in Houston where the majority of the participants are English speakers; to help a Spanish participant a consecutive interpreter has been appointed.Other examples can be medical consultation or an interview.

In short, consecutive is stop-and-start while simultaneous is continuous.

Which type of interpreter do you need

It is clear from the discussion above,the type of interpreter (and the number of them) you might need will depend upon the kind of meeting you are planning. In summary, one should always go with simultaneous if the conference is large featuring keynote addresses from stage.On the other hand, if it is a small interactive meeting then consecutive interpreters would be preferable.
