The business of interpreting

Business and conference interpreting

Interpreting services are useful in all kinds of situations. Matching these situations with the right sort of interpreter is as much of an art form as the interpreting service itself. Great conferences are remembered for their content, organisation and learnings. Interpreting is a central aspect of making sure your conference or event is a success.

The best interpreters in the business

In a nutshell, a conference interpreter is someone who can speak one language while listening to a second language at the same time. Doing this under pressure, while making sure the relevant information is presented clearly, is a genuine skill. A professional interpreter will relay the message with the same delivery style, tone and convictions of the speaker.

For an attendee, it means the ability to communicate with freedom, without having to worry about losing important details and information in regional nuances.

Interpreting while a meeting participant speaks

Simultaneous interpreting

Simultaneous interpreting means that an interpreter is interpreting the original message from one language to another while the speaker is talking.


The interpreter works in a soundproof cabin with at least one colleague. The speaker is talking into their microphone.


The interpreter is listening to the speech via a headphone and converting it continuously by talking into her own microphone in the target language.


Meeting participants are provided headphones and they can choose a channel to hear the interpreted speech in their preferred language.
