Consecutive interpreting is a method where the speaker is allowed to finish an entire thought or sentence before interpretation. There are two types of consecutive interpreting. The first is called ‘short CI’ (or short consecutive interpreting) where the thoughts are short enough that the interpreter can rely solely on memory. This is best for non-formal settings where short bursts of ideas are common. However, for formal settings, ‘long CI’ (long consecutive interpreting) is used. In this case, the interpreter takes notes to remember the thoughts said within a long period of time. It’s also a good idea in this case for the interpreter to have some idea of what is being said beforehand, especially in the case of speeches. This allows for easier and more efficient interpretation.
