A rare international conference today can go without simultaneous interpreting. Simultaneous interpreting means that the speaker does not have to make pauses and wait for the interpreter to render the utterances in the target language. In this type of interpreting, a team of interpreters is located in a boothand interprets the speech with about 5-second delay from the speaker. The audience wear headphones and the translation is transmitted into these headphones. This technique saves time and can cut the time of your conference in half or, alternatively give the attendees of your event much more time for networking and socializing. There is another additional benefit. The interpreting team being virtually invisible, your audience interacts directly with the speaker with no delays for translation.
This type of interpreting is very challenging for the interpreters both mentally and physically, that is why normally interpreters work in teams of two or even three, depending on the subject and the length of your event. The price of simultaneous interpreting is normally higher than that of consecutive and escort interpreting but considering the time you save and the ease with which your audience will be able to interact with the speaker and each other, you will save in the end.

Even the most brilliant of speakers and the most talented and experienced interpreters will not be able to convey the message to the audience, if the equipment is faulty, noisy or requires endless adjustments throughout the day.
