Liaison Interpreting

Liaison Interpreting implies short passages interpreted one after another during round-table negotiations, with neither an interpreting booth nor portable interpreting equipment being used.

Benefits:
  • No need for a simultaneous interpreting booth
  • As a rule, just one interpreter suffices
Drawbacks:
  • Such interpreting in effect doubles the time required, and the scheduled programme needs to take this into account
  • Undynamic
Fields of use:
  • Negotiations and talks held on a small scale within a corporate environment
  • Appointments with authorities and at court hearings
