Simultaneous interpreting is a highly specialized skill which requires accurate and complete translation, orally and at the same rate of speech as the speaker, with only a few seconds of lag time. Simultaneous interpreters must be able to clearly convey a message in one language into another for a group (or groups) of people attending a summit, seminar, convention, rally or other type of forum.
LATN has gained vast experience in simultaneous interpreting for conferences and business events due to being based in Atlanta, Georgia, which ranks 7th among the “Top Global Cities of the Future” (fDi Magazine) and is home to more than 1,200 multinational corporations. Over the last 20 years, we have handled conference interpreting for hundreds of major events in the Atlanta area alone.
Simultaneous interpreting is difficult and demands quick intelligence, a thorough knowledge of terminology in both the source and target languages, and great stamina. We send only our most qualified and capable interpreters to fill these assignments. Based on the type of interpreting required – whether simultaneous, whisper or consecutive – we also provide audio equipment (booths, audio transmitters and receivers, microphones and headsets) and technical support upon request.
