Consecutive Interpretation

A consecutive interpretation takes place when the interpreter speaks after the source-language speaker stops speaking.

This is the most straightforward form of interpretation and is suitable for situations that are more deliberately paced. These include:

  • Small business meetings
  • Interviews
  • Press conferences
  • One-on-one meetings
  • Phone and video calls
  • Law courts

With our global network, we have access to skilled interpreters from across the map – so you can be assured of accurate, affordable and reliable consecutive interpretation services for your meetings and conferences.

Benefits of consecutive interpretation

  • Straightforward and easy (for participants) to follow both the native language speaker and the translator
  • Adequate breathing room for all participants to hear and absorb the information being presented
  • No specialised equipment needed
  • Lower costs

Disadvantages of consecutive interpretation

  • Slows down the pace of the meeting, conference, interview or event
  • Lengthens the time of the event
  • Over an extended period of time, can increase boredom and distraction levels among participants
  • Not suitable when interpretation is required in multiple languages
