» What does an Interpreter do?

Interpreting usually takes one of two forms:

a) Consecutive interpreting: here the interpreter listens to a section of speech then either summarises it or relays the gist. This is more useful for one-to-one meetings and small groups.

b) Simultaneous interpreting: the interpreter attempts to relay the meaning in real time. Naturally there is a small delay while the interpreter processes information. This type of interpreting is used more in conferences and tele/video conferences. It should be kept in mind that the nature of this work requires specialist equipment if the client does not wish for 'whispering interpreting'. In addition, if you require this service for a whole day it will be necessary to source at least two interpreters due to the mental fatigue experienced by the work.

Tips we always advise customers to consider are:

a) Always be clear about why you are hiring an interpreter. Will they serve any purpose beyond straight language translation? You may need someone with a particular knowledge of an industry sector or you may need someone with negotiation skills.

b) Always give as much background information on the situation the interpreter will find themselves in. What outcomes do you expect? Are there any potential issues or problems such as difficult personalities or sensitive issues?

c) Plan ahead. When will you need the interpreter? Try and give both you and them time. If necessary you may want to meet with them first to discuss the day or meeting. Will they be needed for a whole day or week even?
