Back in Business: Resuming Conference Interpretation
International and business travel could soon be back, as government roadmaps become more positive, travel bans steadily get lifted and vaccination programmes continue to go to plan. This hopeful news is helping many to start planning trade shows, exhibitions, and corporate events.
Event agencies and conference venues in the UK are expecting to be back to business after summer 2021, provided rates of infection remain at current levels. After guidance issued by the government, they are thinking ahead by promoting safer events and releasing Covid Cover Guarantees, flexible plans, and safety roadmaps.
The importance of conference interpreting
Messages and ideas must be conveyed to all listeners and attendees for the smooth running of conferences. These can include multilingual meetings and diverse audiences, many of which might not speak the same language. That is where the need for conference interpreters comes in: to reduce any communication gaps and allow speakers and attendees to understand each other, including any international featured speakers.
There are two main types of conference interpretation services used by global businesses: consecutive and simultaneousinterpretation. Whilst interpreters wait until the speaker pauses before they translate during consecutive interpretations, interpreters translate what is being said at the same time as the speaker in simultaneous interpretations.
