Simultaneous Translation Service

The Simultaneous Translation Service, also known as simultaneous interpretation or conference interpretation, is performed in events where speakers and listeners speak different languages, and in which a translator or interpreter simultaneously translates to the audience everything that is said, using a system with a transmitter and receivers with headphones.

The simultaneous translator, also known as interpreter, stays in acoustically isolated booths strategically placed in the site of the event so they can transmit the translation
without comprehension errors caused by environment noise.
