Consecutive interpreters follow a slightly different process from Simultaneous Interpretation. In Consecutive Interpretation, interpreters are required to listen to a consecutive speech in the source language for five to ten minutes or less (the time varies according to the specific situation), and then interprets or expresses all the contents in the target language, eloquently and accurately.
However, both simultaneous and consecutive deal with the same level of difficulty when performing their job, the only difference is that the consecutive translators have to take notes or develop excellent memory skills to express the message after listening to it for a couple of minutes.
During consecutive interpreting the speaker stops every 1–5 minutes (usually at the end of every “paragraph” or complete thought), and the interpreter then steps in to render what was said into the target language.
Consecutive interpreting may be used for smaller business meetings or in court on the witness stand. This is a back and forth style of interpreting, with speakers of multiple languages taking turns speaking and being interpreted.
A key skill involved in consecutive interpreting is note-taking, since few people can memorize a full paragraph in one hearing without loss of detail.
