What is Consecutive Interpretation?
Consecutive interpreting is often known as classic interpretation since the discourse is interpreted in the required language as the speaker has concluded. Consecutive Interpretation relies on the interpreter listening to the statements of the speaker and conveying these to the target language. For consecutive interpreting, the interpreter places themself near to the speaker and takes notes while listening. The speaker will pause every 5 or 10 minutes so that the interpreter can repeat their speech in the target language. Alternatively, the interpreter can wait until the end of the speech before presenting it in full in the desired language. Consecutive interpreting increases the length of the meeting or conference. For this reason, consecutive interpreting is recommended for short meetings or conferences lasting a maximum of one or two hours. It is the most common interpreting method for press conferences.

In consecutive interpreting service, a complex system of symbols and abbreviations are used in order to take the detailed notes as the speaker delivers the speech. The system was developed over the years through experience and training. There are a very large number of systems that exist today for taking notes.
