When an outsourcer is looking for an interpreter (s)he has the choice between simultaneous and consecutive interpreting.
But there is also legal interpreting, facilitating interpreting, escort interpreting,whispering interpreting, (chuchotage), liaison interpreting, interpreting over the phone,... I was wondering whether it would be possible to enhance the possible choices for the outsourcer.

Hi Williamson,
Very good points - in fact, staff and moderators are currently working on a revamped Job Posting Form (several forms, actually), taking the different specifics of translating and interpreting into account.

I'm moving this to the Job Systems forum, so we have all suggestions related to Jobs in one place.

Best, Ralf
