Therefore, the risk in the consecutive translation service is less than in the simultaneous translation services. Thus, consecutive translation services are often preferred on different platforms. The meetings or conferences where consecutive translation services are preferred are usually brief, confidential or formal organizations.

Because the areas of use for translation methods differ from one another, the areas where consecutive translation services are preferred and the advantages of the said method are different than in the other methods.

The elocution of the translators to deliver the consecutive translation service should be clean and articulate. Also, the translators should stick to the essence of the subject and translate without getting off of it. Thus, one must have detailed information regarding the experience and translation skills of the translator who will deliver the translation service.
