Simultaneous Interpretation.

This is highly skilled work which should only be undertaken by a  qualified professional with experience.

Simultaneous interpretation is where one person speaks continuously and many people listen to what is being said in the interpreted language. The interpreter interprets in real time.

Specialist equipment is required for Simultaneous interpretation. Interpreters require a sound proof booth in view of the speaker. An audio feed from the speaker's microphone to the interpreters headphones is needed. From here a microphone will convey the interpretation to the audience.

For work of more than a few hours 3 interpreters are needed. The reason for this is that the level of concentration required is so demanding that each interpreter requires frequent rest periods.

NTIS New Zealand requires as much information as possible before the job commences. We need to see...

  • A schedule of the event and time interpreters will be needed. This enables the interpreters to plan their work accordingly.

  • Drafts of speeches and a good explanation of the topics, difficult vocabulary and technical words being used.

If NTIS New Zealand doesn't have this information we will either refuse to undertake the task or quote a 'worst case scenario' price.
