(♪♪♪) Hmm
consecutive... simultaneous....
simultaneous.... which one do I pick?
Hi everybody welcome back.
So today I thought I'd go ahead and discuss an interpreteing topic.
Many of you want to become interpreters, or you
are an interpreter. But anyways I'd thought I would go ahead and discuss the 2 different kinds
of sign langauge interpreting and the 2 kinds are
and consecutive.
So what's the difference?
So the first one,
simultaneous, that means
at the same time... the same time. (typewriter sounds)
So that would mean
for example the person starts talking,
then I'd wait a little bit until I understand the
concept and then I'd go ahead and start interpreting at the same time they're talking. So,
they're talking and I'm interpreting at the same time.
Ok, often times there's a little bit of a delay, but still you are
working at the same time. Now for
consecutive, that's a little bit different.
That means... (typewriter sounds)
So for example the person would
talk, say a few sentences, or one or two
concepts and then they pause and then I go ahead and interpret.
Then it goes back, then they talk, then
I interpret. So pause, interpret, pause talk, back and forth.
So forth, so in simultaneous it's the same time,
and then consecutive. So what are
they for? Why would I use simultaneous, or why would I use consecutive?
I'd say most often with sign langauge interpreting,
typically it's simultaneous. Ummm,
there's really not many situations that I've actually experienced using consecutive
interpreting. I would say consecutive is usually is for
like beginning interpreters. If it's really hard for you to be able to process
and interpret at the same time. You know I mean it's a really difficult skill for you to learn.
So a lot of times with beginning interpreters, or if someone doesn't really
know sign langauge as well. They say "hold on" and then they interpret, "ok what did you say?"
"Ok let me think" and then they interpret. So maybe for that situation. Umm
that does not mean that its less of an interpreting. I'm just saying, typically that's what I've
noticed it used for. Simultaneous is used for regular
professional interpreting. So I'm gonna go ahead and
give you some demonstrations of what it actually looks like for both of these.
So I'm gonna go ahead and have a clip of
myself talking here. Then I will go ahead
and demonstrat the simultaneous and then
the consecutive. Ok so first we're gonna start with simultaneous.
"The pros about this
are it is organic, cruelty free, and it's
good for sensitive skin. I don't necessarily have sensitive pits but it is good
for you. Umm this is just a stick deodorant and it doesn't leave any sort of
white marks or anything like that, that I noticed of. Ummm..."
Ok so that was simultaneous
so now I'm going to show you consecutive.
"The pros about this are, it is organic,
cruelty free, and it's good for sensitive skin. I don't necessarily have
sensitive pits, but it is good for you...."
"Umm this is just a stick deodorant.
It doesn't leave any sort of white marks or anything like that, that I've noticed of."
Ok so that was consecutive, meaning
talking or signing or whatever it is, but for this example talking
waiting, pausing, and then interpreting. So agian it's just
different. Now I've actually with simultaneous
umm mostly I said that's used for interpreting. Typically it's just easier
because you can have a good conversation flow at the same time. You dont' have to pause
and take turns back and forth and kind of make the whole thing a lot longer. Umm now
I did recently do a little bit of research and there's some people
that now that are actually considering that consecutive is more beneficial.
I haven't really gone in depth in research with that, but maybe if I can, I can
find more information then I can make a video about that if you guys would be interested.
But consecutive is good
mainly becaue really you're getting the information and
then you're waiting a little bit. Each time getting a little
bit of information each time. Whereas with simultaneous you're
listening or "listening" and interpreting at the same time. So,
sometimes during that process you might miss information or you
might screw up. So I mean is it going to
become more consecutive in the future? I don't know!
We will see. So hopefully
you guys have a little bit better of an understanding of the different kinds of interpreting.
What they're used for and maybe you know saw the
demonstaration. If you still have questions, please go ahead and leave those as comments.
I definitely would love to answer any of the questions you have.
Yeah I'll see you all in the next video. Bye!
