Liaison Interpreting

Intérprete em acompanhamentoIn  liaison interpreting,  interpreters accompany executives or delegations on visits, tours or business meetings in their  country of residence or abroad. It ‘s also known as escort interpreting.

If the portable translation equipment is used, interpreters can go into simultaneous interpreting;  if no equipment is available,  interpreters can either go into consecutive or whispered mode.

Liaison interpreting is often used in inspections, audits, visits to shop floors, industrial facilities or crop fields.

Impeccable manners and appearance, discretion, friendliness and awareness of cultural differences are key prerequisites for interpreters working on such  missions.
