With whispered interpretation (or ‘chuchotage’), the interpreter whispers the translation into the participant's ear while the speaker talks. The interpreter aims to remain inconspicuous and interprets simultaneously.
Whispered interpretation is an ideal solution for smaller meetings or events with a limited group of participants who speak a different language, such as short presentations, company visits, panel discussions or business negotiations. These interpreters must have excellent concentration skills, as they have to listen, translate and speak at the same time as the conversation proceeds. Whispered interpretation is a form of simultaneous interpreting without the luxury of working from a fully-equipped interpreter booth. The greatest benefit is that there is little to no delay compared to consecutive interpretation.
