Consecutive and liaison interpreting
In a general sense, consecutive interpretation and liaison interpretation are characterised by the fact that the person who is talking stops so that the interpreter can pass on information verbally on what has been said in the target language. This activity must not be confused with the translation of written texts or simultaneous interpretation which requires technical equipment (cabin, headset etc.).
Liaison interpretation consists of transmitting what has been said in a conversation between two or more persons, such as in negotiations or meetings in general.
Consecutive interpretation takes place in meetings on highly specialised topics, training activities, speeches, small focus groups and trips, amongst others.
Both are used in diverse fields, ranging from commercial or business fields, contracted by private users or professional companies, or tourists, including legal and police situations, medical issues, professional training and many more. An experienced interpreter is capable of reproducing a 10-minute speech with great exactitude.
Our team of interpreters is formed by a hand-picked selection of self-employed professional. This type of relationship allows for us to have on hand the best experts available on the market to support you in your needs. We provide interpreting services both to companies as well as private individuals. We are happy to tackle all manner of projects, even those of short duration, that may last merely a few hours.
