Consecutive and Face-to-Face Interpreting Service

Hero Curve Element

Completed by qualified and experienced interpreters

There are a number of forms of interpreting, but you can roughly place them within 2 categories:

  • Consecutive
  • Simultaneous

Consecutive interpreting is when one person speaks in one language, leaves a pause, and meanwhile the interpreter will verbally interpret what has been said in the other language.

Simultaneous interpreting is much more intense.  Two interpreters will work in tandem delivering the interpretation at the same time as the speech.

Forms of consecutive interpreting

  • Face-to-face
  • Remote via video link
  • Via telephone

Working in over 200 languages, our face-to-face interpreters will travel on-site to help you communicate with your overseas visitors.  We have interpreters based all over the UK (and beyond!) and so we will send the closest available to your location.

If you need an interpreter to attend via Zoom (or a similar platform), we can arrange this too.  Just let us know what day, what time and send us the link so that the interpreter can join.

We also offer consecutive interpreters via telephone.  This service is actually available in over 200 languages, 24/7, 365 days of the year.  Just visit our telephone interpreting page to find out more.

Our interpreters

Our vetted interpreters can speak at least two languages, they understand the need for punctuality and compliance with any security or other matters when on clients’ premises.

Our consecutive interpreters must generally have appropriate qualifications or be able to demonstrate a minimum of 200 days relevant work over a period of five years.  Depending on the sensitivity of the subject matter, we are also able to provide interpreters with various levels of security clearances:

  • Counter terrorist check
  • DBS enhanced certificate
  • DBS standard certificate
  • Disclosure Northern Ireland certificate enhanced
  • Disclosure Scotland enhanced
  • Disclosure Scotland standard
  • Home Office security clearance
  • MoD security clearance
  • Police clearance

We assign a project manager to every assignment to ensure the project runs smoothly and is delivered on time and within budget.

Case Study.

Thurrock Council | 2023
Working on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions, our client is an experienced investigator and conducts complex interviews, some of which culminate in legal action. He relies on our interpreters to provide professional, neutral and accurate communication.
  • Tamil consecutive interprete
  • On-site for series of investigative interviews regarding benefit fraud for a council
  • Tamil/English
“The interpreter arrived in plenty of time, was very professional and polite, I gave him a brief overview of my intentions and our procedure, he was very good in the two interviews explaining exactly what the interviewees had said (I know this is the whole point, but it doesn’t always happen), he seemed very much at ease with the situation and as a result of all this the interviews flowed really well. “

How is the cost for consecutive interpreting calculated?

  • The cost depends on the language(s)
  • The cost depends whether the interpreter will need to attend on-site or via video link.
  • The cost depends on availability of particular interpreters on date and time in question.
