To put it simply, interpretation means translating a speech from one language to another. Interpretation is constantly evolving depending on organisational needs. The business world has become highly globalised and as such interpreting services are becoming more and more popular.
There are many segments of business where an interpreter or interpretation equipment can easily fit in. Whether you want to expand your business and manage it through linguistically diverse teams, forge new international collaborations, or manage your logistics. There are various types of interpretation that best suit specific company requirements.
Relay interpretation involves more than one interpreter and two different types of interpretation occur at once. As the speaker delivers the speech the first interpreter will translate the speech into one language. Later another interpreter will translate the first interpreter’s translation.
This type of interpretation is best used in small business meetings where fewer people are involved. Whispered interpretation is used when the conversation between two or three listeners happens within one room. As the speaker delivers their speech the interpreter translates it for the listeners taking part.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, this type of interpretation has a high demand. Over Phone Interpretation can occur consecutively or simultaneously. Companies that hold discussions overseas are more likely to need this type of interpretation. Over Phone Interpreters must be good listeners as they are responsible for facilitating conversations between people from different countries.
This is when the interpreter translates what the speaker is saying sentence by sentence. After each sentence, the speaker will pause to let the interpreter restate the speech before continuing. This type of interpretation can facilitate conversation between larger groups where language is a barrier. This type has many uses including meetings and discussions.
This type of interpretation translates the speech from one language to another in real-time. This is the most frequently used type of interpretation and is widely used for businesses that take part in international and multilingual conferences. The Congress Rental Network team has created a Remote Simultaneous Interpretation (RSI) platform that is one of the best for your multilingual conferences or business meetings.
