Simultaneous Interpretation Services in the UK

What is simultaneous interpretation?

In simultaneous interpretation the interpreter renders the message in the target-language as quickly as he/she can formulate it from the source language, while the source-language speaker continuously speaks.

Simultaneous interpretation

It is not a well-known fact that simultaneous interpretation belongs to the category of high-stress professions. This is the result of the professional “Interpreter Workload Study” commissioned by the International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC), which was completed in December, 2001. Many interpreters as the most stressful factors pointed out: high speech rate, reading the texts by the speakers, strong accents, lack of preparation time and the discomfort connected with the work in a special sound-proof booth.

Moreover, interpreters have to possess great knowledge of all the languages they interpret in. It is extremely important to understand everything that is being said, and to be careful not to make any mistakes. Sometimes it may change the meaning of the utterance and lead to uncomfortable misunderstandings.
