Consecutive, Simultaneous & Telephonic Interpreting

Baystate Interpreters, Inc has provided interpreting services for groups ranging from 3 to 5,000 people. Our interpreters are available in more than 150 languages and dialects and have the skills that best match the setting and context of our clients’ needs.

Consecutive interpreting Most often is is used for small groups and one-on-one situations, including interviews, parent-teacher conferences, depositions and medical consultations. 

This type of interpreting is ideal for both informal and formal settings. Typically, this type of service is preferred in most healthcare environments including pre and post opt, emergency care, pt/ot, mental health, psychiatric evaluations, etc..

Simultaneous interpreting is primarily used in formal group settings, including diplomatic conferences, conventions, courtrooms, meetings, tours and seminars.  It can also be used for some medical appointments depending on the preference of a physician.

It is “simultaneous” because the linguist interprets the spoken word from the source language into a target language in real time while the speech or presentation is in progress. The interpretation is transmitted to all listeners at once, often via special headsets.

This type of interpreting frequently requires sophisticated equipment, including soundproof booths and wireless receivers.

Telephonic interpreting is also offered by Baystate Interpreters, Inc. Telephonic interpreting saves the need for arranging an interpreter on site, especially in remote locations or in emergency situations.  Baystate provides 24/7 telephone conference services in a moments notice.  Users are provided an access pin number and an interpreter will be brought onto the call within 1-2 minutes.

Unfortunately, this is the least precise form of interpreting, in part because it excludes non-verbal communication. When interpreters cannot see the person speaking and/or the telephone experiences call degradation context and meaning are not always maintained at the same level as on-site service ensures.
