What is Simultaneous Interpretation and how does it work?
Simultaneous Interpretation (also known as Simultaneous Translation) requires specialised conference interpreters who can interpret spoken word as it's being spoken. This reduces the time that delegates need to wait before being able to understand the speaker and preserves the flow of speech. There are three main steps in the Simultaneous Interpretation process supported by dedicated simultaneous interpretation equipment to ensure a high level of professionalism:
Step 1: Floor Language is Spoken
The ‘floor language’, spoken by the guest speaker, conference lecturer or main presenter is transmitted wirelessly through the main microphone or ‘floor feed’ to the translation control room.
Step 2: Interpreters Listen
The control room is usually in a separate location in a soundproof interpretation / translation booth or sometimes at the back of the auditorium. From here, the interpreter or interpretation team listens to the content live as it is broadcast.
Step 3: Interpretation and Delivery
The content is concurrently replicated and interpreted by the interpreter(s) in the Interpretation booth, which is delivered wirelessly to the corresponding audience members through infrared headsets.
