February Consecutive[ edit ] In consecutive interpreting CIthe interpreter starts to interpret when the speaker pauses. Therefore, the time needed is much greater possibly double the time needed.
Traditionally, the interpreter will sit or stand near the speaker. In short CI, the interpreter relies mostly on memory whereas, in long CI, most interpreters will rely on note-taking.
The notes must be clear and legible in order to not waste time on reading them. This affords a truer, more accurate, and more accessible interpretation than where short CI or simultaneous interpretation is used.
An attempt at consensus about lengths of segments may be reached prior to commencement, depending upon complexity of the subject matter and purpose of the interpretation, though speakers generally face difficulty adjusting to unnatural speech patterns.
Sight translation combines interpretation and translation; the interpreter must render the source-language document to the target-language as if it were written in the target language.
Sight translation occurs usually, but not exclusively, in judicial and medical work. Consecutive interpretation may be the chosen mode when bilingual listeners are present who wish to hear both the original and interpreted speech or where, as in a court setting, a record must be kept of both. This is also commonly known as double-interpretation.
Triple-interpretation may even be needed, particularly where rare languages or dialects are involved.
Such interpretation can only be effectively conducted using consecutive interpretation. Simultaneous interpreter's station Televic Conference at the European Court of Justice Simultaneous interpretation SI suffers the disadvantage that if a person is performing the service the interpreter must do the best he or she can within the time permitted by the pace of source speech.
However they also have the advantages of saving time and not disturbing the natural flow of the speaker. SI can also be accomplished by software where the program can simultaneously listen to incoming speech and speak the associated interpretation. With a software-based interpretation system the speaker does not have to pause or wait for the interpreter before speaking additional sentences.
Simultaneous interpretation using electronic equipment where the interpreter can hear the speaker's voice as well as the interpreter's own voice was introduced at the Nuremberg trials in The equipment facilitated large numbers of listeners, and interpretation was offered French, Russian, German and English.
SI using software-based systems was introduced by SpeechGear in The simultaneous interpretation is rendered to the target-language listeners via their earphones.
The progressive shift from consecutive to simultaneous[ edit ] Pavel Palazchenko 's My Years with Gorbachev and Shevardnadze: The Memoir of a Soviet Interpreter gives an excellent short history of modern interpretation and of the transition from its consecutive to simultaneous forms: In the nineteenth century, there was little need for interpretation, at least in European diplomacy, since French was the lingua franca of international relations and [was] spoken by all diplomats and most heads of state and government.

Simultaneous interpreting is a skill that many community and legal interpreters increasingly need, especially in educational, faith-based and legal settings. However, this specialized training does not currently exist outside of costly university degree programs.
Interpreting is a translational activity in which one produces a first and final translation on the basis of a one-time exposure to an expression in a source language..
The most common two modes of interpreting are simultaneous interpreting, which is done at the time of the exposure to the source language, and consecutive interpreting, which is done at breaks to this exposure. Language interpreters and translation equipment for world-wide interpretation support.
interpreter - Traduzione del vocabolo e dei suoi composti, e discussioni del forum. Groups of deaf people have used sign languages throughout history.
One of the earliest written records of a sign language is from the fifth century BC, in Plato's Cratylus, where Socrates says: "If we hadn't a voice or a tongue, and wanted to express things to one another, wouldn't we try to make signs by moving our hands, head, and the rest of our body, just as dumb people do at present?".
