Chuchotage or whispered interpretingWhen you need an interpreter for a factory visit, a cultural site, staff training,…
Whispered or elbow interpreting is actually simultaneous translation, with or without equipment. In this situation, the interpreters are not isolated in a soundproof booth.
The interpreter stands close to the participant who does not understand the language spoken, and “whispers” the translation into his/her ear.
Interpreting with tour guide equipment is in fact simultaneous interpreting.
