Simultaneous interpreting is an oral translation performed while the speaker is speaking. While the speaker is speaking, the interpreter translates.
Usually, simultaneous interpreting is carried out in a soundproof booth, with all the necessary equipment: a headset, a computer, a microphone.
A professional simultaneous interpreter listens to the speaker and translates each sentence into the microphone, conveying the speaker’s entire message.
Simultaneous interpreting is therefore a simultaneous translation, i.e. performed simultaneously, of the speaker’s words, which the listener hears in real time.
This service is often requested for events, conferences, conventions, international meetings with a large number of participants (where, generally, no soundproof booths are used), who from their device can choose the language they are interested in hearing, and listen to the interpreter through headphones.
