    Simultaneous Interpreting

    If you participate in an important event in another country and you don`t know the language, then you need a simultaneous interpreter. Synchronists accompany most public figures: politicians during summits, Nobel laureates at scientific conferences and representatives of CEO corporations within business meetings. Simultaneous interpreting is even used during the Pope’s sermon in Vatican.

    Simultaneous interpreting for large events by a team of professional interpreters

    Therefore, the cost of a synchronist`s error is extremely high. For example, a diplomat John Coleman Holmes tells about this in his book, citing the speech of the Spanish delegate in France as an example.

    His phrase “I beg your pardon, I have a cold,” the interpreter translated from French as “Sorry, I have constipation.” It caused a wave of laughter in the hall and, as a result, ruined the reputation of the politician and the interpreter.

    Types of a simultaneous interpreting in Kyiv

    Simultaneous interpreting is one of the most difficult types of interpretation. Only 20% of interpreters who deal with consecutive interpreting can provide high-quality simultaneous interpretion services.

    There are 3 types of simultaneous interpreting:

    • “By ear”, when the interpreter listens to the speaker’s speech and translates the information in blocks. This is the most complicated type.
    • “From paper”, when an interpreter receives the text of the speech in the written form 15 minutes before the speech and translates it during the event, making necessary adjustments.
    • “Simultaneous reading”, when the interpreter reads the prepared translation during the speech, making adjustments if the speaker moves away from the primary source.

        How to calculate the cost of simultaneous interpreting

        The cost of simultaneous interpreting is based on 3 factors:

        • Number of interpreters. If your event lasts several days, the best option is to ask for a translation team to accompany you until the end of the event. The team will also help you if you want to translate your speech into several languages.
        • The number of working hours. The price of simultaneous interpretation of a 10-minute presentation and a 2-hour lecture differs significantly.
        • Event theme. Social events do not require special knowledge from a synchronist. Yet at medical conferences, it is important to be aware of the terminology and have experience in a particular field in order to correctly translate the speech.

        Why is simultaneous interpretation better than consecutive

        There are 3 main advantages of a simultaneous interpreting:

        • Connection with the audience. Due to the fact that the speaker’s speech sounds without a pause, he can communicate with the audience and adjust his speech to the audience’s reaction. For example, if he tells a joke, and no one understands it, he can clarify where the humor is.
        • Significant reduction in the duration of the speech. The duration of the speech is twice shorter with simultaneous interpretation. That means the speech would take 20 minutes instead of 40.
        • Interpretation into several languages. You can translate a speech not only into English, but also into any other language with the help of simultaneous interpreting and using special headphones.

        The specifics of the synchronists work

        If you are planning to attend or organize an event with foreign speakers, invite a team of simultaneous interpreters. Why a team?

        Because simultaneous interpreters standardly work in pairs replacing each other every half hour. The world record for simultaneous translation has been set — 5 hours, but not every translator is a record holder.

        In addition, you will need special equipment — a simultaneous interpretation system. It can be stationary or wireless and contains:

        • two pairs of headphones for a pair of interpreters;
        • microphone for interpreters;
        • a set of headphones for each participant;
        • a booth where the interpreter will sit.

        Sounds complicated? Then contact us, and we will arrange simultaneous interpreting for you. Contact our manager, and he will calculate the price of simultaneous interpretation for your event and suggest how to better plan it.

        Translation of technical documents is different from medical or informational one. The main difference is that there is a bulk of specific terminology in such texts.

        Consecutive Interpreting

        If you want to organize a business presentation or phone meeting with foreign partners, you just need a consecutive translation. It is interpreting of your speech as a whole or in semantic blocks.
