Henry Fox has a number of options for face to face interpreting. Our interpreters work closely with our clients to ensure accurate and consistent interpretation tailored for any event.

Consecutive Interpreting

Our consecutive interpreters are ideal for situations such as medical appointments, local authority tenant discussions and confidential hearings – where the interpreter listens to the speaker in the source language and then reproduces the speech in the target language of the audience.

Consecutive interpreting is also intended for small conferences, meetings or presentations, in a consecutive interpreting setting, our professionals will start interpreting after the original speaker has stopped. Our interpreters, therefore, have time to analyse the message as a whole, making it easier for them to deliver a high-quality output.

We also provide ad-hoc consecutive interpreting services for government officials, business executives, investors or observers who are conducting on-site visits.  This service is marked by the ability of our interpreters to respond spontaneously and the huge variety of situations they may find themselves in: from formal meetings to factory-tours or cocktail parties. Consecutive interpreting is most commonly used in these situations, and is usually limited to a few sentences at a time.

Simultaneous Interpreting

Is a service most popular amongst corporate clients and large organisations. This is due to simultaneous interpreting being frequently used for conferences, large business meetings and smaller business meeting for example board or directors or committee meetings.

The simultaneous interpreter sits in a soundproof booth, listens to the speaker through earphones and, speaking into a microphone, reproduces the speech in the target language as it is being delivered in the source  language. Simultaneous interpreters are in demand, so it’s important that you book this service far in advance, wherever possible.
