Consecutive Interpretation

Consecutive interpretation is frequently used in settings where it is not possible or appropriate to install simultaneous interpretation equipment. In this mode of interpreting, the interpreters take notes as they listen to the speaker who is advised to stop at reasonable intervals in order to let the interpreter communicate the message to the other participants in another language. It should be noted that consecutive interpretation takes at least twice as much time as simultaneous interpretation.
