Simultaneous Interpreting

For seamless communication throughout small or large scale conferences or meetings.

What is Simultaneous Interpreting?

Simultaneous interpreters translate spoken language directly, i.e., without delay, into another language.

Simultaneous translators are also referred to synonymously as simultaneous translators, synchronous translators, and cabin translators.

Simultaneous Interpreting is Recommended for:

  • International conferences, conventions, and congresses
  • Trade fairs
  • Webinars, seminars, courses, or workshops
  • Interviews
  • International negotiations
  • Meetings and discussions with customers and business partners
  • Guided tours
  • Presentations and product demonstrations.

How does Simultaneous Interpreting work?

Simultaneous interpreting is the most common type of interpreting for conferences. The speaker’s speech is interpreted into another language in real-time. In simultaneous mode, spoken language interpreters work in soundproof booths, where they receive the sound feed through headsets and interpret the speech into the target language in real-time, with a delay of just a few seconds. Attendees listen to the interpretation through a headset and can listen to their language of choice.

Simultaneous interpretation requires professional conference interpreters who have undergone rigorous training. Simultaneous interpretation requires two or three interpreters per target language who work in turns, alternating at regular intervals (usually every 20 to 30 minutes).
