Types of Conference Interpreting(CI)

There are various types of CI for various situations.

Simultaneous Interpretation: it’s  pretty simple to understand, a little tough to execute. ‘simultaneous’ means going hand in hand. So, in this type of interpretation, the interpreter needs to translate immediately as the speaker speaks. All this takes place from a soundproofed room, fitted with systems for amplifying and transmitting and recording the sound. The interpreter must possess the qualities to seamlessly adapt the tone of the speaker and convey the message as neat as possible.

Consecutive Interpreting: here the interpreter has some time. He/she takes notes as the speaker speaks and then renders the message, in a language understood by others. it sometimes is rendered after the speakers complete fully, else after completion of 2-3 sentences. So this goes on and off.

Liaison Interpreting: this type has too many audiences, a crowd to be addressed to. it happens in the corporate world, where the multilingual audience is many. This happens either in the way of simultaneous or consecutive.
