Consecutive translation


Consecutive translation is one of the types of oral translations during which the speaker makes a pause necessary for the interpreter to translate all the above said. Such type of translation is used at the events with a limited number of participants. However the main advantage is the mobility that is the possibility of movement of the discussion group.

The translation company «AFIM» pays a considerable attention to the consecutive translation, because it is one of the official types of interpreting used during business meetings and briefings. At the same time this type of translation requires from the translator a high level of attention, observance of business etiquette, good command of a vast vocabulary of at least two languages, and ingenuity and keenness of wit.

Among the difficulties of such kind of translation one could state the following: necessity of adaptation of the source text to make the latter clear for the target audience, taking into consideration all the differences in meanings of phraseological phrases in different languages, inadmissibility to express the interpreter’s own opinion and so on…

One of the most important steps in the consecutive translation is that the interpreter should adhere not only to the norms of the business ethics but to the translation ethics as well. It means the interpreter should be playing the role of a mediator during the negotiations that would not afford rendering the speech deficiencies of the speaker and would conceal the interlocutor’s confusion. Altogether with this the interpreter should never interfere in the discussion as well as exaggerate or underestimate all that was said during the conversation.
