Have you ever been in a conversation where you needed to resort to a third person in order to communicate?
This third party is an interpreter working in liaison mode.
How does it work?
Liaison interpreting, also known as “bilateral interpreting”,
involves two (or more) parties who do not share
the same language and need to have a conversation.
Since there is constant interaction, I translate
messages both ways.
This way, I guarantee
all parties can communicate smoothly.
In what type of situations is it used?
