Consecutive interpretation is suitable for conversations in which no more than two different languages are spoken. The interpreter listens to the message in the source language and waits for a pause to translate it to the target language. This can be done sentence by sentence or the interpreter can provide a summary for longer sections. Consecutive interpretation is often used for bilingual meetings, speakers, witness statements, job interviews, training sessions and press conferences. 

Consecutive interpretation is more time-consuming than simultaneous interpretation, but it is easier and cheaper to organise, as it does not require special equipment.
