They way it is conducted is what we call talking in turn, professional speak resonably short sentences and pause allowing interpreter to interpret or convey or relay they message to client, then client would would listen to the client who in return speak resonably short sentences and pause allwowing interpreter to interpret to professional.
– Consecutive Interpreting: Basically it is interpreting between two parties, professional and their client. Usually this type of interpreting is higher in its level than community interpreteing. usually it is what is call one-direction interpreting, the professional would speak long sentences, addressing an audience for up to 250 words, then pausing to allow to interpreter to convey the message. Consecutive Interpreters usually are good at note taking skills as this type of interpreting requires note taking.
