Whispering Interpreting Services
At WordlyWise Interpreting, we offer this service, also known as chuchotage. It is ideal for confidential meetings or events involving a small number of participants.
For instance, when two heads of state meet under closed doors, the interpreter will quickly translate to bridge the language gap. Whispered translation can also be used when one participant requires assistance.
Whispered interpreting allows more flexibility, as no equipment is required. The interpreter stays close to the speaker and translates in a low voice. Depending on the length of the assignment, two interpreters may be required due to the stress and fatigue caused by speaking in a lower voice for long periods of time.
