I hold a MA Degree in Conference Interpreting, and I have been working since 2008. I have experience working in Italy, as well as in other countries, such as Switzerland, Serbia, Russia, Tunisia, Romania. I have worked at numerous conferences, meetings, workshops, lectures, seminars, covering a wide range of topics. Assignments include, among others, events on international cooperation, politics, journalism, or social issues, but also events related with EU-funded projects in Western Balkans countries, international organisations, social forums.
Whispering is usually offered in combination with consecutive interpretation. As you can see from this picture, I was seated between two English-speaking guests, providing whispered interpreting in English, as well as consecutive interpreting in Italian for the audience.
What is Whispering ? Whispered Simultaneous Interpreting.
The interpreter is seated or standing among the delegates and interprets simultaneously directly into the ear of the delegates. Whispered interpretation can be used only for very few delegates sitting or standing close together. It is used mainly in bilateral meetings or in groups where only a few delegates do not share a common language.
Whispering is often used instead of consecutive in order to save time. Sometimes, the whispering interpreter will use a headphone in order to get the best possible sound from the original speaker.
Here you can see me providing consecutive interpretation services. I stand in front of the audience, listening to the speaker and taking notes, before rendering his speech in Italian.
What is consecutive interpreting ? Interpreting after the speaker has finished.
The interpreter sits with the delegates, listens to the speech and renders it, at the end, in a different language, generally with the aid of notes. In the modern world consecutive interpreting has been largely replaced by simultaneous, but it remains relevant for certain kinds of meetings (e.g. highly technical meetings, working lunches, small groups, field trips).
When working in simultaneous mode, teamwork is key. I always work with trusted colleagues who share my passion and dedication for our profession, as well as my commitment to ensure a smooth communication with your foreign partners.
What is simultaneous interpreting ? Interpreting while the delegate is speaking.
The interpreter works in a soundproofed booth with at least one colleague. The speaker in the meeting room speaks into a microphone, the interpreter receives the sound through a headset and renders the message into a microphone almost simultaneously. The delegate in the meeting room selects the relevant channel to hear the interpretation in the language of his/her choice.
