The qualitative interpretation of any international event is essential to its success. Translation Services Moscow Time offers services in consecutive and simultaneous interpretation. Below is an explanation of the differences, helping you to select the right service for you.


Consecutive interpreting

In consecutive interpreting (CI), the interpreter speaks after the source-language speaker has finished speaking. The speech is divided into segments, which determines the type of CI. Consecutive interpretation exists in two options (types): "short CI" and "long CI". In “short CI” the interpreter memorizes each segment, while in “long CI” the interpreter takes notes of the message.

Consecutive interpretation is usually used for the following types of events:

  • Conferences, including the telephone conferences
  • Seminars, conferences, meetings, etc.
  • Press conferences, receptions, briefings, presentations, celebrations with foreign guests
  • Workshops and seminars with the participation of foreign supervisors
  • Exhibitions and excursions, supporting guests
  • Court hearings, interrogatories, and so forth
  • If necessary, signing and notarization of international documents
  • Interpretation over Skype™

Simultaneous interpreting

In simultaneous interpretation (SI), the interpreter renders the message in the target-language as quickly as he or she can formulate it from the source language, while the source-language speaker continuously speaks; an oral-language SI interpreter, sitting in a sound-proof booth, speaks into a microphone, while clearly seeing and hearing the source-language speaker via earphones. Simultaneous interpretation is rendered to the target-language listeners via their earphones. Moreover, SI is the common mode used by sign language interpreters, although the person using the source language, the interpreter and the target language recipient (since either person may be delivering the message) must be in close proximity. The first introduction and employment of extempore simultaneous interpretation was at the Nuremberg Trials, in 1945–46, with four official working languages.

Translation Services Moscow Time provides simultaneous interpretation at international conferences, presentations, seminars and other kinds of events. We have a great deal of experience in this field, and it is one of the most common contracts for our company. Therefore, relying on Moscow Time for that kind of support for any international event, where simultaneous interpretation is necessary, you will be provided with the best specialists of great skills and knowledge, that will assure you a high-quality service.

Whispered interpretation services

In whispered interpreting (a.k.a chuchotage), the interpreter restates what is being said in the form of a simultaneous whisper. It is used for a relatively small audience (fewer than 4 listeners).

Relay interpretation services

Interpreters use the relay interpreting when there are several target-languages. The “pivot interpreter” is the person in a room, who is translating what has been said. Then, his/her translation is transferred to other interpreters via microphone and earphones. They, in turn, interpret the pivot interpreter’s translation into other target-languages.

We offer full interpretation support that includes a wide range of services such as complex linguistic support of international delegations, or the participation of specialists in business trips around Russia and abroad, as well as personal traveling. If you need a highly skilled interpreter in Moscow and you are looking for reliable translation services in Russia our company is the best choice.
