LIAISON OR BILATERAL

INTERPRETING

Liaison interpreting, also known as bilateral interpreting, is where the interpreter acts as a mediator or liaison between two people or groups of people by reproducing in the target language all the elements of the conversation between the parties. In this mode, the interpretation is bilateral, i.e. the service goes in both directions, in both languages, in order to reproduce a conversation, meeting or speech fluently.

This service also does not require any technical equipment. It is crucial that the interpreter is physically present with the event participants and can travel with them (in the case of business visits, accompaniment, etc.).

A liaison interpreter should be invisible; his or her only role is to break down as much as possible the communication barriers between two people or groups of people. The professional that provides the service does not interfere either physically or communicatively in the original conversation.
