    What is simultaneous interpreting?

    Simultaneous interpreting (also known as concurrent interpreting) is a highly specialised practice that demands complete and accurate oral translation, at the same rate of speech to the speaker, with a very short lag time.

    Whether a foreign delegate’s speech needs to be interpreted for a large crowd or just whispered to an individual (see “whispering interpretation“), at Today Translations we can always provide the service you’re looking for.

    It’s a service mostly popular among corporate clients and large organisations. We find that our services are frequently used for conferences, where the interpreter will most likely be sitting in a booth with a pair of headphones, speaking into a microphone. However, it’s not infrequent for a simultaneous interpreter to be required at business and committee meetings.

    Some of the best simultaneous interpreters in the industry

    At Today Translations, we only employ the most experienced and highly-specialised linguists in the industry.

    The linguists in our global network are all professionally qualified in translation and interpreting, and specialised in their field of expertise.

    No matter your industry or the subject matter of your conference or meeting – be it financial, legal or medical – we’ll provide an interpreter who knows how to accurately relay the message to your target audience.

    Simultaneous interpreting is one of the most demanding services we provide, which why we only employ the most experienced interpreters for such tasks. The interpreter must be skilled at translating the sentence into the target language while listening to and comprehending the subsequent sentence at the same time.

    Decisiveness, therefore, is key, as no time can be used to reflect on the alternative interpretations or different phrasing.

    Providing you with a quality service

    Whatever your requirements, we’ll provide a service that’s tailored to you, no matter the location in the world or language combination.

    If you’re planning a large-scale, multilingual event, we can also provide the interpreting equipment for you.

    If you want the assigned linguist to be present a number of hours before the event, you can rely on them to be there. Would you want to speak with the interpreter personally beforehand, we’ll organise it for you. Do you want an interpreter who will be granted certain security access, we’ll make sure they’re vetted and cleared.

    We were overall delighted with the standard of service and Today Translations delivered, in terms of translation quality, time and attentive customer care. They were highly responsive, creative and were central to the success of the translation and quality assurance process. The project managers we dealt with were collaborative and operated very much as part of the team. I would commend our experience of working with Today Translations to other organisations requiring professional translation services.
