The most popular method of interpreting is simultaneous interpreting – when the interpreter listens to the speaker and simultaneously translates the message into the target language.
Usually, speakers prepare for an event by making a presentation or writing a speech. If possible, we recommend handing these materials to the interpreter in good time. This allows the interpreter to become familiar with high quality performance.
If the speech is translated beforehand, the interpreter can use it as an aid.
Simultaneous interpreting: the interpreter speaks at the same time as the speaker. This form of interpreting is usually chosen for large conferences. This service is comparatively complicated, as special equipment is needed and the interpreting is done by two professionals in turn (usually swapping every 15 or 20 minutes).
