Consecutive interpreting will make interacting with your overseas clients easier during face-to-face meetings. Depending on your individual needs, we will provide an experienced interpreter to accompany you to meetings. We will require two weeks’ notice prior to the meeting in order to arrange for a suitable interpreter based upon their background and availability. We also request as much information as possible about the meeting in order to brief the interpreter in plenty of time.Learn More

Communications with overseas clients, partners and employees can often be challenging if you don’t all speak the same language. The language barriers can result in misunderstandings, mistakes and even the breakdown in relationships. Our consecutive interpreting service provides you with an independent interpreter who will accompany you to face-to-face meetings, allowing you to liaise with your clients in whichever language they speak and enable you to conduct effective communications anywhere in the world.
We have a database of experienced freelance interpreters who can demonstrate a sound knowledge and understanding of your industry sector and who are native speakers of the language(s) you require.
For the purposes of consecutive interpreting, the interpreter will listen to the source-language speaker and then speak directly after they have finished speaking. At this stage or when the speaker pauses, the interpreter then renders the entire message in the target language.
There are two forms of consecutive interpreting: short or long. For short consecutive interpreting, the interpreter will memorise brief segments of speech and repeat them in the target language sentence by sentence. Long consecutive interpreting requires the interpreter to take notes to aid in the interpreting of longer passages of speech.
Prior to the hiring of a consecutive interpreter, we would require you to provide us with enough information to brief the interpreter adequately before the meeting. We will also fully brief you on the process so you understand how it works and answer any questions you have.
We’ll put a lot of preparation into making sure that we select interpreters with specialist knowledge in your industry and that we have a clear localised style guide and glossary so our team can understand your brand guidelines.
