Simultaneous Court Interpreters Services

What is a Simultaneous Court Interpreter?

Simultaneous Court interpreters are the most practiced and qualified linguists within the court interpreting sector, having spent many years honing their skills to almost real-time interpreting.

Utilising the facilities of a sound proof interpreting booth situated in the court room or venue, a simultaneous interpreter will monitor proceedings and interpret what is being said via a ''push to talk'' microphone. This is fed to the recipients infra red headsets through an infra red transmitter which is usually placed above the inter-modular interpreter's booth.
