Simultaneous interpretation (interpretation in real time) requires soundproof booths, special AV equipment (with an operator on site) and interpreters with highly advanced language and interpreting skills. The advantage of simultaneous interpretation is zero time loss and the possibility to interpret into several languages at the same time.
2. CONSECUTIVE INTERPRETATION
Consecutive interpretation means that the presenter and the interpreter speak in turns. It is most often used at brief social events where there are no substantial time constraints or at mass gatherings where it is impossible to provide headsets for everyone in the audience. If breaks are not scheduled at least every 90 minutes, it is necessary to hire two interpreters who will be taking turns. Please bear in mind that net presentation time doubles when consecutive interpretation is used. The interpreter must be provided with high-quality incoming audio and the possibility to take notes.
