Conference Interpreting

Did you know?  

The first use of simultaneous conference interpreting using electronic equipment for a large number of listeners took place during the Nuremburg Trials of 1945-1946, where four official languages were used.

What is simultaneous interpreting?

The world of interpreting can be a confusing one for many clients and simultaneous conference interpreting is perhaps an area that we find our customers know the least about.  

Simultaneous interpreting, as the name suggests, is when the interpreter interprets at the same time as the speaker is speaking, working in a soundproofed booth alongside at least one colleague.  

The interpreter receives the speaker's voice through a headset and then relays the information in the relevant language into a microphone, which is received by delegates listening on a headset in the audience.  

This type of set-up is actually perfect for conferences, exhibitions or any event where a large number of listeners may not speak the speaker's language.
