Is Consecutive Interpreting the Best Choice for my Event?
Consecutive interpreting is usually the best choice for events where there is one speaker or a few speakers, and an audience consisting of one target language.
It minimises the need of complex technology and equipment such as soundproof booths, so it can be cost effective for businesses needing translation services.
For events where delegates may have multiple target languages, or you wish for the interpretation to be conveyed in real-time, then simultaneous interpreting may be a more appropriate choice. Find out more about simultaneous interpreting here.
