1) interpreting

Tailored to your specific language needs, I offer the following interpreting solutions for all subject areas:

· simultaneous
· consecutive
· liaison interpreting

I am personally available for German, English and French. For other languages, I am happy to organise teams of colleagues from my large network.

The difference between consecutive and simultaneous interpreting is clearly illustrated here: (in German only) comparison

Below you will find some communication scenarios and possible solutions:

‍simultaneous interpreting

Conference, congress, seminar, etc.

Large number of people in need of interpreting; combination of several languages possible; several days possible

SOLUTION - simultaneous interpreting
(2 to 3 interpreters in a booth, depending on the complexity of the task); saves a maximum of time

Small number of people in need of interpreting; just one foreign language possible; possible for a limited period of time

SOLUTION - simultaneous interpreting
simultaneous interpreting with mobile interpreting equipment, 2 interpreters for a maximum of 3 hours

Just 1 or 2 person(s) need an interpreter for only one foreign language; only possible for a limited period of time

SOLUTION - whispering
1 or 2 interpreters for a maximum of 3 hours

‍consecutive interpreting

for press conferences, product presentations, lectures

The interpreters work without technical aids and take turns with the speaker; requires twice the time, hence the simultaneous solution may be preferable

‍liaison interpreting

Business discussion, negotiation, factory tour

1 or 2 interpreters work without any equipment directly during the discussion, sentence by sentence or paragraph by paragraph; only one foreign language possible
