What is a Simultaneous Interpreter?

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

Utilising the facilities of a sound proof interpreting booth, 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 interpreters' booth.
