- What is simultaneous interpreting?
Simultaneous interpreters are sometimes called UN-style interpreters, conference interpreters or simultaneous translators. They are bilingual by definition – but just being bilingual isn’t enough. Professional interpreters invest years in training and practice to reach the standards we require.
For each language, a pair of interpreters work together in a glass audio booth, listening to the conversation on headphones and simultaneously speaking into a microphone. Delegates listen on earpieces, tuned to the channel that carries their language.
We provide full microphone and headset setups – tailored to the size of your meeting room and the number of speakers – so that all your guests can participate freely. Our technicians are available at your meeting to fix any glitches, quickly and unobtrusively.
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of using simultaneous interpreters?
Simultaneous interpretation is the only practical choice for multi-lingual conferences – the only way to ensure speakers of many different languages can understand and participate fully.
Done well, it’s almost invisible; the mark of good interpreting is that it fades into the background!
Simultaneous interpreting requires sophisticated specialised equipment – and the expertise to set up and run it.
It requires incredibly high skill levels and preparation on the part of the interpreters. And finally it requires excellent project management to bring all the elements together. We bring together the right skills and technology to meet and exceed your expectations.
The stakes are high. A poor simultaneous interpreting service will, without a doubt, damage the value and credibility of your meeting. Ubiqus will provide good value for money and experience that combines the right skills and technology to deliver an efficient and accurate service.
