Simulataneous interpreting

Simulataneous interpreting

Simultaneous interpreting involves directly communicating the content of a speaker’s dialogue, in other words, reproducing the dialogue in another language in real time. To carry out a simultaneous interpretation technical equipment  is required to make this complicated task possible, which can include interpretation booths, transmitters and portable receivers, sound systems, etc. The interpreter or team of interpreters translate what is being said by speaker, whilst the public listens to the interpretation through headphones, which ensures that the dialogue is not interrupted at any point. Thanks to this, the total duration of the operation is not increased. This type of interpreting (oral translation) was first used in Nuremberg courts during the Second World War and subsequently the UN started to use it.
