Consecutive interpreting is mostly preferred in smaller group meetings.
The interpreter stays either next to the speaker or at the rostrum or desk on the podium and interprets through his/her notes.
The speaker must allow the interpreter to interpret after a couple of sentences.
Consecutive interpreting may not be the correct type of interpretation for all meetings.
The prerequisite is to have perfect sound quality and to provide the interpreter with the speaker’s text in advance.
The speaker must always be in coordination with the interpreter allowing him/her to interpret with reasonable interruptions.
