Simultaneous Interpretation Malta takes place together with the speaker’s speech. The interpreter works in an acoustically isolated cabin with at least one other colleague with him. In the meeting room the speaker talks with a microphone, the interpreter receives the sound through headphones and interprets the speech almost simultaneously, speaking in turn with the microphone. The delegates in the room select the channel that allows them to listen to the interpretation in their desired language.
As well as the service of Simultaneous Interpretation Malta, Interpreters’ Bureau is also specialized in the following interpretation techiniques:
- Consecutive: the interpretation begins once the speaker has finished talking. The interpreter sits with the delegates, listens to the speech and, at the end of it, reproduces it in another language, usually with the help of some notes. Today, consecutive interpretation has been largely replaced by simultaneous interpretation, though it remains important for certain types of meetings (conferences with highly technical content, work lunches, small group conferences, off-site trips).
- Chuchotage: this is a whispered-type of simultaneous interpretation. The interpreter stands or sits next to the delegates and interprets the speech by whispering directly into their ears. Chuchotage interpretation can only be used for a limited number of delegates who are sitting or standing very close to each other. This technique is used in bilateral meetings or in groups where the majority of the delegates share the same language.
