Interpreting is defined as the process of “rendering a spoken or signed message into another spoken or signed language, preserving the meaning of the source language content.” It has been used as a connection bridge across different cultures throughout history. Interpreting is not the same as translation, although they share the same purpose, which is to facilitate communication between people. There are various types of interpreting services, and they can take place in many settings and for various reasons. Here are the most common two types of interpretation:
- Consecutive Interpretation: In this type of interpretation, the interpreter listens to what the speaker is saying and conveys the message into another language after the speaker has paused. Typically, the speaker will pause after each complete thought to give the interpreter time to deliver the message. Consecutive interpreters have to be diligent, speedy note-takers and be able to swap between both languages throughout the exchange.
- Simultaneous Interpretation: This is a form of interpretation in which the interpreter listens to, comprehends, and reformulates a speaker’s statements into a target language. It is a real-time process, and the message rendition must take place within the time allowed by the speaker’s pace, without altering the natural flow of the speech. It is usually used in large meetings and events where the interpreter sits in a booth in front of a microphone.
There are many events and situations where interpreters are needed. Interpreters offer their services in conferences, legal translation in courts, travel services, tourism, and other events.

Types of Interpretation We Offer
Rosetta Translation and Interpretation Services provides various interpretation services as listed below:
Simultaneous interpretation is one of the most challenging language services to provide. The simultaneous interpreter has to be quick-thinking and needs a full command of the two languages with which they are working, including any specialist jargon. The interpreter in this type of interpretation often wears high-quality headphones so they can hear the source person's voice and translate it precisely. It is usually used in large-scale meetings and events such as speeches and conferences with a large number of people.
At Rosetta, we offer high-quality and accurate court interpretation to our clients.
In court interpretation, we employ both simultaneous and consecutive translation. This type of interpretation takes place in courts of justice or other legal settings where a legal proceeding is held and aims to enable client participation in proceedings and communication. Our court interpreters not only have great linguistic skills and are fluent in both the source and target languages but also have expertise in the legal field and deep-rooted knowledge of legal terminology.
The interpreter begins to interpret after the speaker pauses, that is, speaker and interpreter alternate. The interpreter relies on his memory but also on note-taking for message rendition. Consecutive interpreting is called unilateral when it is performed only in one language direction. It is used for various occasions where a limited number of participants is involved, e.g., business meetings or press conferences.
