A whispering interpreter is often used if there is just one person who is listening to the translation. The whispering interpreter whispers the translation in the recipient’s ear. This makes whispered interpreting a less formal method of interpretation, and therefore it is mainly suitable for small groups such as business negotiations, small meetings, and company visits.

The interpreter translates what has just been said and, as soon as the interpreter has finished, the speaker continues his or her speech or discussion. This process is repeated continuously during the gathering.
