Depending on the situation, we will be working in consecutive or simultaneous mode. Simultaneous interpretation is mainly used for conferences and meetings with lengthy presentations as it saves a lot of time.
What is conference interpreting and how does it work?
Conference interpreters work mainly in simultaneous mode, i.e. they convey the spoken message to the audience in another language in real time, almost in sync with the speaker. So you are listening and talking at the same time, and, still, have to make sense!Conference interpreting saves a lot of time and is mainly used for conferences and meetings with lengthy presentations. This mode of interpreting requires special equipment (interpreter booths) and competent simultaneous interpreters. Because of the challenging intensity of simultaneous interpreting, interpreters work in teams of two in order to be able to replace each other every half hour.
