Liaison and negotiation interpreting:
According to the customer's needs, the interpreter offers a simultaneous whispered translation (chuchotage) or provides a consecutive translation of the speaker's words. For longer meetings, a team of two interpreters per language is used. This service is for customers at home or abroad who want to present their company of products.
The speaker's words are translated afterwards. The interpreter stands next to the speaker and does not translate until the end, relying on notes taken during the speech (see the technique of interpreting notes). This form of interpreting is suited for small meetings and short speeches, but it takes twice as long.
Whispered translation (chuchotage):
From the French word chuchoter, meaning "to whisper", chuchotage is an almost simultaneous technique in which the interpreter, standing or sitting next to the person who does not understand the source language, conveys the speaker's message by whispering it in the person's ear.
