In the business world, communication is everything. Without it, organizations cannot collaborate, especially on an international scale. To overcome language barriers, businesses need to invest in interpretation.
Let’s explore what simultaneous interpretation is and how it can benefit your business.
What is Simultaneous Interpretation?
The speaker communicates in real time in their own language. The interpreter simultaneously interprets the speaker’s words with a delay of just a few seconds, so people can understand immediately. There is no interruption of the speaker’s message to allow for the interpreter to interpret a segment, and then go to the next segment. It will be a continuous flow, not alternation between the speaker and interpretation.
This is best used in conferences, meetings, seminars, and panel discussions. If a group frequently utilizes simultaneous interpreting, they might invest in a stock of equipment sufficient to fill their needs. If the usage is occasional or intermittent, they may rent from a language services provider The equipment varies by brand, but there must be a means for the interpreter’s voice to be clearly transmitted to the listener such that there is no distraction for the listener, who should hear only the interpretation meant for them, not other languages or distractions around the room. Where several languages are being interpreted at the same time, separate channels are needed so each hears just their intended message.
Remote simultaneous interpretation by video allows you to conduct your meetings online if on-site meetings are not feasible.
Benefits of Simultaneous Interpretation
The entire experience happens in real-time. There are no breaks or pauses by the speaker, so the entire interpretation is smooth and has a flow to it. It doesn’t take additional time speak, interpret, speak, interpret, etc., because it happens simultaneously. Consecutive interpretation, takes longer, since the speaker must wait for the interpreter to finish before continuing with their next thought, resulting in a longer meeting.
The simultaneous model saves time and provides a satisfying experience to the people listening to the speaker. If your business has hired an expert simultaneous interpretation service such as Reliable Translations, then the entire experience will be effortless.
