Simultaneous interpretation service

Andiamo! provided two French and six Japanese simultaneous interpreters, plus interpreting equipment, for a recent conference we organized. Our client was especially happy with the Japanese interpreters, saying “we’ve travelled to events all over the globe, and the Japanese translation at this event was by far the best we’ve ever had!

We ran a 2.5 day training event for over 100 European sales people with simultaneous interpreting from English to German, Italian and French. I was very impressed with high quality, flexibility and adaptability of the interpreting team from Andiamo! Our content was medical and at times technical, with a range across strategic marketing, clinical and sales from a range of accents and speeds. The team provided excellent translation and daily feedback. We also had Andiamo! take care of the AV needs and this service was excellent with a Sound Engineer who went well beyond the contracted terms to ensure our event was successful. I would use Andiamo! again.

What is simultaneous interpreting?

Our simultaneous interpretation service is usually requested for large events such as conferences. We understand that these types of events may require coordinating multiple interpreters for different languages, sourcing specialist equipment, and delivering content to large audiences. You can trust us to handle the simultaneous interpreting process, allowing you to completely focus on running your event.

Simultaneous interpreting involves the interpreter relaying what is being said in one language into another language in real time. Typically, a simultaneous interpreting service requires two interpreters who sit together in a booth and take turns interpreting, usually alternating every 20 to 30 minutes, because interpreting simultaneously is very intensive. Sharing the workload between two simultaneous interpreters prevents either one from burning out, and ensures their minds remain sharp so they can deliver a high-quality and accurate service.

Although simultaneous interpreting often involves the use of a booth and equipment, at Andiamo! we also offer whispered interpreting. Sometimes known by its French name chuchotage, the interpreter stands or sits next to the person who needs to understand the foreign language and relays the content in real time by whispering in their ear.

Simultaneous interpreting differs from consecutive interpreting. This is when the interpreter listens to the speaker for about half a minute, whilst making notes. They then interpret into the required language to the audience while the speaker pauses.
