Understanding Requirement of a Conference Interpreter:

The work of an interpreter revolves around expressing the same things spoken by the speaker to the listener. You can say he is the middleman between the two, or three or even ten. It is not a compulsion that every person has to avail the service but the one who will not be able to exchange thoughts and expressions must get a professional language interpreter. Now, the question arises, how many interpreters will you need? The common answer will be just one, which is not always true.

  • In simultaneous interpreting, high level of concentration is required. Especially for the meetings which could take more than one hour to get finished. It is always better to hire two interpreters in the conference. They can exchange their timings after half an hour so that they are fresh and ready to handle things independently. For the meetings less than hour, just one interpreter is enough. But, the meetings must have 10 minutes of break in-between.
  • On the other hand, consecutive interpretation can be easily handled by just one or two persons for at least 3 hours, depending upon the workload of the conference. This is because; in this type of interpretation, the interpreter has to speak after the completion of the sentence or the paragraph. He gets a fraction of time to think, analyze, and decide on the basis of the speaker intention. Hence, it becomes comparatively easy for the person to interpret without much of confusions.
  • ¬†Whispered Interpretation is required only where the meetings are held for a shorter period of time and listeners are just one or two. This type of interpretation is not possible in a place where a large of people is present in groups or there is continuous disturbance in the form of noise. Further, this is a personal form of communication and is apt only for informal occasions or formal dinners, or get together.
