Simultaneous interpreting services for events and conferences

We provide specialist simultaneous interpreters in any language.

A simultaneous interpreting service is the ideal choice for larger events such as conferences, board meetings and multilingual events. We can provide experienced interpreters in every language, all of whom hold specialist qualifications in conference interpreting. Our service also includes the hire of all necessary audio equipment, including transportation, set up and technical support.

How does simultaneous interpretation work?

Simultaneous interpreters translate a speaker’s words while they are still speaking. They do this using specialist audio equipment that transmits the interpreter’s verbal translation straight to the listeners’ headsets. This means that the speaker’s message can be heard and understood by the whole audience at the same time, no matter what language they speak.

As you can imagine, simultaneous interpreting requires an incredibly fluent and deep understanding of both languages. It is a demanding role with no room for error. Because of this, it’s best practice for simultaneous interpreters to work in pairs in order to keep up with the fast-paced requirements of the task. We always arrange for two simultaneous interpreters per language to attend each event.

The two interpreters we had for our event were spectacular. They went above and beyond to make the event special for those listening to the interpreted feed. The staff behind the scenes were also great to work with.

When is simultaneous interpreting the right choice?

Simultaneous interpreting, when an interpreter uses specialist equipment in real time, is different to consecutive interpreting, when speaker and interpreter take turns.

Simultaneous interpreting is likely to be the right choice for meetings with multilingual participants and more formal events where it is necessary for everyone in attendance to be receiving the information without a delay. This includes conferences, performances and site tours. Simultaneous interpreting is also an excellent choice for events that require interpreters for multiple languages.

We can deliver simultaneous interpreting services onsite, online or as part of hybrid events.
