Nagotiation and Consecutive Interpreting

Negotiation interpreting takes place between two parties that speak different languages, which could be two people, an individual and a small group, or two small groups. It is performed in a two-way manner.  In consecutive interpreting, the translator refers to what is said from the speaker and conveys it into the other language based on own notes.
