TO FOLLOW THE SPEECHES IN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE UNINTERRUPTEDLY AND FOR THE INTERNATIONAL AUDIENCE TO UNDERSTAND YOURS.
WHAT IS SIMULTANEOUS TRANSLATION?
Simultaneous translation, as the word itself says, implies direct translation of speech from one to another, the target language, in parallel with the development of speech. A very demanding type of translation, which requires an experienced translator and special equipment. It is most often used at important events attended by a larger group of people, such as assemblies, international meetings, international trials and the like. The goal of simultaneous translation is to enable people from different speaking areas to follow and actively participate in activities at meetings and events of large groups of people.
WHEN TO HIRE A SIMULTANEOUS TRANSLATOR?
Both consecutive and simultaneous translation belong to the group of interprets, but there are differences between them. The first difference is that simultaneous translation is used in meetings of a large number of people from different speaking areas. When it comes to meetings with a small number of people, it is enough to provide a consecutive interpreter. Another, very important difference, is that simultaneous translation requires special conditions. It is necessary to provide special booths for translators, which enable them to listen to speech without interruption and at the same time reproduce the translation. Here we come to the third difference – the experience and skills of the translator. This way of translating requires exceptional concentration and excellent knowledge of the target language by the translator. Not all translators are adequate for simultaneous translation. Finally, due to its complexity, simultaneous translation usually takes significantly shorter than consecutive, so it is desirable to replace the simultaneous translator every half hour, up to an hour.
The advantage of simultaneous translation is precisely the simultaneity of translation with speech, which significantly saves time and is suitable for strictly time-limited meetings and events.
