Simultaneous interpretation

Simultaneous interpretation: what does it mean?

Simultaneous interpretation refers to a live interpretive technique in which a professional interpreter listens to a speech and translates it in real time into another language, with only a few seconds of lag between the speaker and the interpreter.

Why hire a professional interpreter?

This format requires translating the speech as it is spoken — a mental exertion that requires specific skills and specific training. It is impossible for an untrained translator to risk it, especially for certain combinations of languages whose structure is different from English. In German, for example, the main information is sometimes given at the end of the sentence. Therefore, it’s essential to trust the job to someone with a sharp ear.

What if your meeting space doesn’t allow the use of a booth?

When space is extremely limited, Ubiqus offers several options. Table-top booths fit on almost any table and still provide sufficient sound-proofing. Digital communication tools work in indoor and outdoor spaces and enable both one-way and two-way communication. Tour guide systems are suitable for meetings in which participants are moving around.
