Simultaneous Interpreting – the interpreter speaks whilst simultaneously listening to and comprehending the next sentence. Their interpretation is usually relayed via headphones at large conferences, media launches and TV broadcasts, or whispered in smaller surroundings such as courtrooms.
Simultaneous interpreting (also known as concurrent interpreting) is a highly specialised practice that demands complete and accurate oral translation, at the same rate of speech to the speaker, with a very short lag time. It is a service popular amongst corporate customers and large organisations. We find that our services are frequently used for conferences, where the interpreter will most likely be sitting in a booth with a pair of headphones, speaking into microphone. However, it is not infrequent for a simultaneous interpreter to be required at business and committee meetings.
Simultaneous interpreting is one of the most demanding services we provide, which is why we only employ the most experienced interpreters for such tasks. The interpreter must be skilled at translating the sentence into the target language while listening to and comprehending the subsequent sentence at the same time.
