Simultaneous interpreting

Simultaneous interpreting, used usually at international conferences, multi-language seminars, congresses, training sessions, proceedings and official meetings of top level managers, which require multi-language communication. Simultaneous interpreting is done by a team of interpreters communicating what the speaker said, as soon as he said that, in the source language, to the audience in the target language, in specially accommodated sound-proof cabins. The listeners have headphones and receivers which let them hear the translated contents in the language of their choice.

Thus, the simultaneous interpreting consists in listening, understanding, interpreting and reproducing the meaning of words, all of that at the same time. Therefore, he must know the foreign language perfectly, be able to share his attention and be resistant to stress. Simultaneous interpreting uses a number of technical facilities: specialist instruments, proper public address systems and the suitable technical conditions, to allow proper flow of information. A simultaneous interpreter must cope with many problems, such as bad pronunciation of the speaker (say: a man from Sweden speaking in English), very fast speech, usage of puns. An interpreter must be very well prepared to cope with this type of challenge.

Whispered interpreting is a type of simultaneous interpreting. It is done usually for one person or a small group of listeners, where no technical systems are required. The listener usually needs a few seconds to absorb the contents whispered by the interpreter.
