Nuances of Simultaneous Interpretation...
This cannot be done by computers but only human interpreters & translators who are very skilled in the language arts can do
this task. This is because of the fact that it is hard and rather impossible for a computer to handle the nuances of culture
These interpreters & translators have the ability to listen to a speech in one language and convert it to another language
instantaneously. This is not an easy task and takes a highly trained individual to do this. Just being bi-lingual doesn’t
help. An interpreter is not allowed to trip over his/her words.
He/ She has to be spontaneous and instantaneous while interpreting the expressions of the speaker, in addition, the
interpreter must have complete knowledge of the subject of the speech with all terminologies and vocabularies related to the
subject of the speech in both source & target languages.
Specialized electronic equipment has an essential role in simultaneous interpretation. It is a complex audio routing system
designed specifically for language interpretation. The audio needs to travel in its utmost pure sound quality from the person
speaking to the interpreter and then back from the interpreter to the audience in their own language. We must essentially
note here that when the language of the speaker is not the language of the audience requirement for language interpretation
In simultaneous interpretation mostly a pair of interpreters are required to be together sitting inside a sound-proof booth
consoling with a headphone and a microphone each. They take turns while performing the interpretation task. At any point in
time, only one of them stays "live on-air".
If the audience is a mixture of many language speaking participants for each target language a pair of interpreters is
required in separate booths. The participants can choose their preferred language in which they want to listen to. A wired
listening station solution or a wireless transmitter/receiver solution with functionalities like a channel selector, volume
control, and headphone are made available to accomplish this objective. That is how a -real-time multi-cultural communication
that bridges the language and cultural barriers is organized successfully. We offer Simultaneous Interpretation Services by
highly professional and experienced interpreters.
