Consecutive Interpreting

In consecutive interpreting (CI), the interpreter speaks after the source-language speaker has finished speaking. The speech is divided into segments, and the interpreter sits or stands beside the source-language speaker, listening and taking notes as the speaker progresses through the message. When the speaker pauses or finishes speaking, the interpreter then renders a portion of the message or the entire message in the target language.

Jane Hu has worked as a consecutive interpreter for decades.  Her ability of interpreting sometimes long passages of the speaker with either relying solely on her memory or her note-taking skill has won her reputation as one of the best Chinese interpreters around.  Her adaptive interpreting styles find their way in all types of settings, be them business negotiations, classroom setting, or legal proceedings.  She often interprets for high-profile government officials and business leaders, as well as important trade missions.
