Confuse: Interpretation with Translation? Are you one of those who confuse interpretation with translation? If yes, you are not alone. A lot of us use these two terms interchangeably in their daily life. But it doesn’t mean you will continue making this mistake in future as well. Absolutely not! So, let us enlighten you about these two concepts of the same field . People who are involved in the study of languages, understand the difference between interpretation and translation. However, the two are still the same for a layman. Though both translators and interpreters share varied similarities in their work, they carry a different approach to service which distinguishes one from the other .

What do Interpreters do?:

What do Interpreters do? If you have ever attended an international conference, chances are you have already seen interpreters. Interpreters are the professionals responsible for changing spoken words from one language to another. They listen to the speaker, grasp the meaning and repeat it in the target language. Instead of converting the whole language word by word, interpreter aims to transfer the same meaning and idea to the audiences on the spot . TWO MAIN TYPES OF INTERPRETATION Simultaneous Interpretation: Concecutive Interpretation:

Simultaneous Interpretation: :

Simultaneous Interpretation: As the name suggests, the process involves converting the message of the speaker in the target language, in real-time. The goal of simultaneous interpreting is not to paraphrase but to convey the exact words to the audience. Places where simultaneous interpretation is commonly used: live-television broadcasts, board meetings, high-level conferences, courts.

Consecutive Interpretation: :

Consecutive Interpretation: In this process, the interpreter waits for the speaker to finish speaking before rendering the speaker’s word in the target language. This type of interpretation involves breaks or pauses between sentences to allow the interpreter to convert what is being said. Places where consecutive interpretation is commonly used: face-to-face meetings, workshops and press conferences.
