Simultaneous interpreting

Simultaneous interpreting

Simultaneous interpreting is an extremely high quality of interpreting service that is mostly used for multilingual events with multiple participants such as

  • Conferences, 
  • Symposia, 
  • Congresses, 
  • Seminars, 
  • Press meetings etc.

The interpreters interpret simultaneously, in other words in parallel to the presentation of the speech or the discussion with no time lag.

Simultaneous interpreters mostly work in teams of two in a sound-insulated interpreting booths with specific simultaneous interpreting equipment.

Whisper interpreting

With whisper interpreting, the interpreter sits immediately adjacent to the listener and whispers the explanations simultaneously into their ear in the target language. This method is often used

  • for discussions between two people with no technical aids or 
  • in a small group of people with mobile whispering equipment

Relay interpreting – simultaneously into a third language

One interpreter first interprets into a common languages such as English or German, and the other interpreters then interpret into other target languages on the basis of that. EN/DE is then referred to as the relay language.

The role of the interpreter extends far beyond purely reproducing the spoken word: they do not simply translate but also convey ways of thinking, including what is meant between the lines. A good simultaneous interpreter therefore not only has an excellent command of both languages but is also an outstanding speaker who can pick things up quickly, has broad general knowledge and exceptional intercultural competence.

Consecutive interpreting

In consecutive interpreting, the interpreter records the information in the one language, writing down what the speaker is saying during the speech using a special note-taking technique and then repeats it consecutively, in other words with a time delay.

Consecutive interpreting is an option for

  • festive events, 
  • project discussions, 
  • shorter speeches or 
  • smaller-scale technical discussions, 

and when the goal is to avoid technical expenses.

With consecutive interpreting, two to no more than three languages can be spoken. 

Since this type of interpreting doubles the speaking time, a significantly longer event duration needs to be assumed.

Remote Interpreting (RI)

Remote Interpreting (RI)

Lots of international companies are replacing their face-to-face events with  virtual events or organising hybrid events that enable virtual participation in a face-to-face event, for example.

Remote interpreting is therefore increasingly being used and saves both time and costs for the company, the participants and the interpreters, and it is also a more sustainable way of working.

Remote Interpreting RI = Distance Interpreting (DI)


  • Online simultaneous interpreting =
  • Remote Simultaneous Interpreting (RSI)


  • Online consecutive interpreting =
  • Remote Consecutive Interpreting (RCI)

Video interpreting

  • Interpreting at video conferences =
  • Video Remote Interpreting (VRI)

Remote Simultaneous Interpreting (RSI) 

is suitable for multilingual events with any number of participants.

The interpreters are physically distant from the event location and the participants are connected live in a team in professionally equipped interpreting booths (remote hub).

Video Remote Interpreting (VRI)

Video interpreting can quickly be organised virtually as a flexible alternative via a video or internet connection for

  • Video conferences 
  • Online meetings/e-meetings/business meetings 
  • Virtual negotiations 
  • Webinars/online training sessions 
  • Launch meetings 
  • Trade fairs 
  • Video calls

 in all language configurations even without a remote hub.

Interpreting technology

Remote hub

Interpreting with a remote hub

High-quality interpreting over a period of several hours and where applicable several languages requires 

  • a powerful IT network, 
  • professional interpreting technology and 
  • expert support from a technician. 

Remote hubs (interpreting studios) are technology studios specialised in remote interpreting, and they offer all of this. They provide the interpreting technology needed for simultaneous interpreting, with booths, interpreting consoles and screens. 

The technician also supports the technical connection to the online or face-to-face event so the interpreter can concentrate fully on interpreting. This is the way to achieve the best possible interpreting performance.

Interpreting without a remote hub/via interpreting channels 

There are also platforms for video conferences that have integrated interpreting channels, such as Kudo, Interaction, Zoom (with the interpreting feature), etc. 

Here the interpreting is also done in an interpreting studio, and the simultaneous interpreting is fed into the interpreting channels and selected by the participants in their desired language directly in the software.
