French is an official language in 33 countries across the globe. By this measure, it is second only to English (an official language in 45 countries). There are also many countries across the globe where French is not actually an official language but plays an important role in the commercial and cultural life of the people.
The French language is a Romance language. Like Portuguese, Spanish, Italian and Romanian, French is a descendant of Latin - the language of the Roman Empire. It is spoken by 90 million as a first language, and 190 million as a second language. Written French uses the 26 letters of the Latin alphabet plus five diacritics: the circumflex accent "â", acute accent "é", grave accent "è", diaeresis "ë" and cedilla "ç". Within France, there are also various dialects and regional languages spoken by smaller communities.
Simultaneous interpreting requires lots of skill and experience and can be very tiring for an interpreter, which is why it is common for two interpreters to work in partnership. They listen via a headset to the speaker and interpret what is being said into a microphone for the relevant audience members taking it in turns every 15/20 minutes.
Simultaneous interpretation like this is commonly required at conferences that involve several different languages and a large number of participants.
Consecutive interpreting is the most common type of interpreting. It is used for business discussions, negotiations, contract exchanges, commercial discussions, legal, technical discussions, medical or court hearings or on site inspections. The interpreter listens to the speaker, often making notes, and delivers the meaning in the target language afterwards. If a speech is delivered, the interpreter may wait until a pause or the end, at which point they deliver a translation relatively quickly. Consecutive interpreting may also be used at conferences for panel discussions, Q&A sessions or private discussions between parties - at a stall or elsewhere.
Facilitating interpreting is used when a client has limited English / source language skills but requires technical or in depth terminology to be clarified in their native tongue to avoid misunderstandings.
The facilitating interpreter is there primarily to ensure communication is effective and relieve the client from the fatigue of speaking in a foreign tongue.
Telephone interpreting allows parties of different nationalities, who are not able to meet in person, to communication via telephone or video conferencing.
The interpreter bridges the gap. Sometimes an interpreter is present in one of the two locations, and sometimes he/she is also located somewhere apart from both parties.
