Simultaneous Interpretation

Simultaneous Interpretation

Simultaneous interpreting is a form of interpreting whereby the interpreter almost simultaneously speaks the interpreted version of the words spoken by a speaker (this also includes “whispering interpretation”). Real-time mutual understanding can be achieved through the use of simultaneous interpreting equipment such as transceivers, etc. and in comparison to consecutive interpreting, this form of interpreting can save time. My Associates Inc. can also make arrangements for the audio equipment for simultaneous interpreting purposes.

Examples: Summit meetings, international conferences, symposia, corporate meetings, executive officers’ meetings, seminars, etc.

Regarding Interpretation Equipment

We offer interpretation equipment system options that are best suited to the venue.
