What is simultaneous interpreting?

Simultaneous is the most anonymous and impersonal type of interpreting. Most of the time, it requires the interpreter to be “behind the scenes”, often in a soundproof booth or room, and often working with special interpreting equipment, headphones and microphones.

For simultaneous interpreting, our experienced, qualified interpreters only work into their mother tongue.

Who is simultaneous interpreting useful for?

This type of interpreting is particularly useful for big-scale conferences, where a sizable portion of the audience will not understand the source language. Quite often, more than one language pair is required.
