Simultaneous Interpreting involves highly skilled and experienced interpreters, whom are familiar with the subject matter and technical terms. Due to the speed of receiving, translating and then delivering the message, interpreters need to be able to think clearly and act quickly under pressure. Simultaneous Interpreters usually work in pairs, alternating regularly to allow for optimal performance and accuracy. At the conference the audience is able to hear the interpreting through the headphones provided. The equipment has a few channels through with Conference Interpreters are connected to the audience. In case interpreting in more than one language is provided, the audience is able to choose from various languages channels. The delay between the speaker and an interpreter can vary from 1 to 3 seconds.
We are very honored to have been chosen for the interpreting service for the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.
