Simultaneous interpretation is more difficult and a respectively more expensive activity. Simultaneous interpretation has to be done concurrently with original speech. A simultaneous interpreter must have the special skill of synchronous perception of information and its representation in another language as well as many other psychophysical qualities: excellent reaction, pronunciation, enunciation, readiness and ability for constant attention concentration. Simultaneous interpretation is necessary at events with large number of participants (lectures, official speeches, conferences). Because of the titanic mental workload, the simultaneous interpreters always work in two shifts (30 minutes of work/30 minutes break). Simultaneous interpretation is usually performed with the help of special equipment (interpreter’s soundproof cabin, earphones for participants, sound amplification), that may be readily provided by LinguaContact Translation Company upon special request.
