 What is Simultaneous Interpretation?

Simultaneous interpreting is one of the most common kinds of interpreting; but also the most difficult. A simultaneous interpreter is someone who interprets for someone in another language while the speaker speaks without interruption.

The main benefit of simultaneous interpreting is that ensures speech consistency, shortens conference time, and improves conference efficiency. In many cases, an isolation booth is required to ensure that interpreters can focus their attention on interpretation without interference.

Simultaneous Interpreting is extremely concentrated work.Interpreters doing simultaneous interpreting work in pairs and relieve
one another every 30 minutes or so.Interpreters generally charge per hour or per day.An interpreter’s charge includes the necessary preparation; you are not paying only for their time on the day.The more material you can give the interpreter ahead of time, the
better they will be able to convey the message.

Characteristics of simultaneous interpreting:

Simultaneous interpreters work in soundproof booths at large gatherings like conferences and legislative sittings, interpreting as
delegates speak.

 Specialised equipment is required for simultaneous interpreting; remember to arrange this as well as the interpreters themselves.
Simultaneous interpreters work in teams of at least two per language combination, as this is very intensive work and they can only
interpret for around 30 minutes at a time. For conferences longer than four days, larger teams are required in order to maintain quality.
Interpreters should not work more than an eight-hour day, which should include a one-hour lunch break and two half-hour tea breaks.
