Consecutive interpreting refers to interpreting different lengths of segments from the speaker’s speech. The speaker uses pauses, and then a linguist interprets what has just been said. The advantage of this form of interpreting is the opportunity to interact. Most often, consecutive interpreting is used during lectures, press conferences, business meetings, international negotiations, and phone conversations. An interpreter needs to demonstrate excellent proficiency in both languages and also be able to concentrate, rely on their memory, and quickly absorb new information to create discrete thoughts.
