Among many forms and types of interpreting services, consecutive interpreting is one of the most in-demand services which enable people who do not share a common language to effectively communicate and understand each other. Consecutive interpreting provides a solution and is most helpful for meetings, conferences, consultations, presentations, events, lectures, seminars, and so on.

During consecutive interpreting, the speaker usually pauses at the end of the sentence or paragraph. The interpreter waits for the speaker to stop before stepping in to interpret the message into the listener’s language. It might be more time-consuming than simultaneous interpretation in which the speaker continuously speaks and the interpreter renders what was said into the target language with a very short lag time. On the contrary, with consecutive interpreting the interpreter is given more time to analyze and translate the message orally into another language. However, it is easier to set up as no special equipment is required and it is most useful in one-on-one exchanges or situations involving a small number of people where only two languages are being spoken.
