Ad hoc / Consecutive Interpreting Services

Consecutive interpreting is just part of the full suite of language interpreting services and translation services that we offer.  Serving demanding clients in government departments and the legal sector, our approach is always customer oriented and includes attentive professional advice as standard.  Contact Us or just call 01480 412120 to discuss your requirements.

Consecutive interpreters wait for the speaker to pause before interpreting. The interpreter may interpret after every sentence, or may take notes and then interpret several minutes of speech at once.  It can also be called liaison interpreting.  Consecutive interpreters are bilingual by definition – but just being bilingual isn’t enough.  Professional interpreters invest years in training and practice to reach the standards we require.

For consecutive interpreting the interpreter stands with the speaker, listens to a section of speech and repeats – in the target language – either a whole sentence, having taken notes, or more manageable portions (often called “chunking”) which he either summarizes and relays the gist of.  This is more useful for one-to-one meetings and small groups.

Accent Consultants offers a range of interpreting services to meet the needs of our clients.  Whether you need a conference interpreted simultaneously, some Whispered Simultaneous Interpreting, or help with a simple conversation through Telephone Interpreting we have the right interpreter in our team for your needs.  If you are in need of a talented ad hoc consecutive interpreter to provide you with excellent consecutive interpreting services, then look no further.  Our team of experienced, native, qualified consecutive interpreters can assist with all your interpreting needs.  For Ad hoc Simultaneous Interpreting, our interpreters work into their mother tongue.

When is Consecutive Interpreting used?

Consecutive interpreting is usually the technique of choice for:

  • Court hearings

  • Keynote conference speeches

  • Conference calls

  • Tribunals

  • Arbitrations

  • Depositions

  • Interviews.

We provide skilled ad hoc consecutive interpreters in every world language, including Arabic, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Swedish.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of Ad hoc Consecutive Interpreting?

  • Consecutive interpreting is easy to set up – it requires no special equipment, no booths or headphones or microphones.   It is therefore very portable and convenient.

  • Consecutive interpreters are most helpful where only two languages are being used (usually English and one other language).

  • If meetings involve many different languages, consecutive interpreting won’t be the right technique – in these cases, you need simultaneous interpreting.

“We recently used Accent Consultants for an interpreting requirement and we were very pleased with the service we received.  Our needs are very specific and not the easiest to fulfil.  This particular request was for a Somali speaker to interpret a psychiatric assessment in a difficult area, and with a tight deadline!  Accent were unfazed and ensured all went smoothly.   I certainly recommend them!”

“Thank you very much for the quick turnaround in organising Agnieszka to help interpret for our meeting in Polish this morning.   We are very pleased to have had her professional assistance, and hope that we can use your excellent services again for the next three meetings.  Should we have any further requirements after that, we will certainly contact your organisation once again.”

“This is our first experience of using Accent Consultants.  We had a requirement for multi-language translation onto signage, including Braille.  Accent responded with great speed and efficiency, and were excellent value for money.  I would be delighted to work with them again!”
