Consecutive Interpreting

SDL offers expert consecutive interpreting in 190+ languages. Turns are taken between the speaker/presenter and the interpreter and short sentences or concepts are shared at a time and then relayed by the interpreter.

Consecutive interpreting works well for events when time and speed of interpreting are not key and just two languages are being used. This kind of interpreting requires no special equipment (only a microphone) so the set-up is quick and simple.

We can provide this service at court hearings, training events, group discussions, educational seminars and other events that require this method.

Simultaneous Interpreting

For simultaneous interpreting engagements, the presenter delivers content at normal speech speed and our interpreters listen from a booth and relay the message in real-time. Attendees listen to the interpreter through a headset.

Simultaneous interpreting works well at events where more than two languages are being used or when time restrictions apply.

We can provide this service at multilingual conferences, meetings, international arbitrations, and other events that require this method.

Our experts will assist you in selecting the best solution and assembling the equipment for your event. We will also be with you  to ensure you have everything you need and provide technical support. Our goal is to ensure your event runs smoothly and everyone is involved because communication channels are clear, no matter what languages are being spoken.


Our language expertise and technologies will help you deliver more value to your global consumers.
