How Do I Get a Simultaneous Interpretation Service?

Simultaneous interpreting (SI) is a service provided by professional interpreters who are specifically trained and experienced and have improved themselves in simultaneous interpretation techniques in addition to using simultaneous interpreting equipment flawlessly. It is the most frequently preferred interpretation service by international institutions and organizations for meetings and conferences in which more than one language is spoken. Thanks to this interpretation mode, you can facilitate communication at your events without interruption.

​

​

 

 

​

Simultaneous interpretation is offered by two interpreters for each language pair spoken at your event. Conference interpreters start interpreting the spoken content into the target language within no more than three seconds and complete the interpretation a few seconds after the speaker has finished speaking. They take turns every 20-30 minutes. While the first interpreter interprets, the second simultaneous interpreter attentively listens to both the speaker and the interpreter and gets ready to take another turn for uninterrupted communication.

​

Simultaneous interpreters are specially trained in this field and have good listening and speaking skills. At HeliCo Translation, we test the interpreting abilities of the simultaneous interpreters that we work with to ensure quality and collaborate with the best simultaneous interpretation providers in the world.

For years, we have been offering simultaneous interpreting services at international events such as the following:

 

  • Company training courses,

  • Seminars,

  • Conferences,

  • Opening speeches,

  • Onboarding events.

At on-site events, we use the best simultaneous interpretation equipment to let the interpreters hear the speaker and allow both the speaker and participants to hear the interpreters clearly. The simultaneous interpretation equipment that you might need can be listed as follows:

​

  • Tour Guide Device

  • Sound-Insulated Simultaneous Interpretation Booth

If you request us to provide simultaneous interpretation remotely, we use meeting applications with features especially suitable for simultaneous interpretation such as Zoom or software developed only for simultaneous interpreting services. We also make sure that our interpreters use over-the-ear headphones with a built-in microphone as well as good internet connectivity.


​

​

​

Both at your remote or on-site events where you get simultaneous interpreting service from us, we additionally support you with our Interpretation Coordinators. At on-site events, they have the following responsibilities:

​

  • To make sure that the interpreters as well as technicians arrive at the venue on time and do their jobs as expected,

  • To check if the interpretation equipment is set up at the right location,

  • To constantly check whether the interpreters and interpretation equipment works seamlessly,

  • To meet any emerging needs that you might not have foreseen.

​​

If your event starts in the morning, we complete setting up the interpreting equipment, test them, and prepare the room with our professional technicians a day before the event. If your event is expected to start in the afternoon, we make the technical preparations on the same day. As a result, you get to focus on your considerations with ease of mind that your interpretation requirements are being taken care of and that the simultaneous interpretation is offered smoothly without any problems.
