Simultaneous Interpretation and Translation Services
Simultaneous Interpretation - General Information

Simultaneous interpretation is a mode of interpretation in which the interpreter renders the interpretation as quickly as possible, almost in a simultaneous mode, as the speaker is speaking.  Normally, during simultaneous interpretation, the interpreter sits in a sound-proof booth, speaks  into a microphone, while clearly seeing and hearing the speaker via earphones. The listeners listen to the interpretation via their earphones.

The first occurrence of simultaneous interpretation was during the Nuremberg Trials, in which interpreters changed their interpretation mode from consecutive interpretation to simultaneous interpreter in order to save time. 

Requirements of Simultaneous Interpretation

Simultaneous interpretation is a specialized area which requires accurate and almost simultaneous oral interpretation with only a few seconds of lag time.

Simultaneous interpreters and translators must have mastered the source and target languages, and in addition, they must have technical knowledge of the subject to be discussed, as well as the required simultaneous interpretation training, skill, and experience.

Thus, most interpreters would need preparation materials beforehand in addition to being fully concentrated during their conference interpretation process.

Because simultaneous interpretation is an intensive and exhausting process, normally, two or three interpreters are required for a particular conference, with each interpreter rotating every 20 to 30 minutes.
