In the simultaneous mode of interpretation, the interpreter keeps up with the speaker in such a way that he is never lagging behind more than a few seconds, which creates a real-time communication effect when performing the translation service.
What is Simultaneous Interpretation?
Simultaneous interpretation is the process of interpreting what is said, from one language into another, while it is being said. Unlike consecutive interpretation, which is the process of interpreting what is said, after it is said, and takes twice as long, the simultaneous mode of interpretation is sometimes referred to as real-time translation.
Why do you need Simultaneous Interpretation?
- Attend a conference anywhere around the world in any language and listen to the simultaneous interpretation through your headsets.
- Participate in a global meeting with delegates speaking in several languages. Everyone can speak and be understood at the same time, without pauses or breaks, through the simultaneous interpretation of the desired language.
- When there is simultaneous interpretation made available at your event, the language barrier is no longer a concern. You can conduct business productively, resolve problems, and work through complex negotiations without communication delays, frustrations, or interruptions.
- Simultaneous interpretation is the preferred mode of interpretation at live conferences for the world’s most renowned international organizations, from the United Nations to the most successful corporations.
- Even if you have a basic knowledge of the speaker’s language, simultaneous interpretation helps you fully grasp the idiomatic expressions or the technical parts of the presentation in your native language.
- Simultaneous interpretation is provided by expert linguists who not only convert speech simultaneously from the source to the target language, but do so masterfully, by adopting the voice of the speaker and capturing the nuances, the gestures, and fullness of meaning with pinpoint accuracy, throughout the whole interpretation.
What are the Main Types of Simultaneous Interpretation?
Simultaneous Interpretation Onsite: The interpreter is physically present at the location of the event. It is customary for an onsite simultaneous interpreter to sit in a soundproof booth for the language interpretation to be heard by the audience via headset receivers. Onsite simultaneous interpreters are uniquely qualified and often need to travel to provide their services in international conferences around the globe.
Simultaneous Interpretation Remote: Advanced cloud-based technology makes it possible for interpreters to work remotely from anywhere around the world, while audiences listen to the interpretation on their smartphone or electronic devices.
