Consecutive interpretation is the most commonly used type of interpretation service. The interpretation is delivered by the interpreter after the presenter stops and pauses for the interpretation.
Since consecutive interpretation includes pauses, starts, and stops for the speaker to speak and the interpreter to render the interpreting, the communication process takes longer than usual. Always factor the extra time in the planning and scheduling of your event. Consecutive interpretation is best used in legal and medical appointments, small business meetings or any other event where the expected running time is around 1 to 3 hours.Depending on the size of the room and the number of attendees, a consecutive interpretation might require electronic equipment such as headsets and microphones.
