How to Do Simultaneous Interpretation

Simultaneous interpretation is a common linguistic practice. In simultaneous interpretation, the speaker delivers his message/speech in his own language; the interpreter orally translates this running speech of the speaker in to target language.


  1. Listen to what the speaker is saying.
  2. Translate it in your mind.
  3. Render the translation into the microphone.
  4. At the same time, listen to what is being said while he is speaking himself.
  5. Be very attentive and alert.
  6. Inculcate a very sound grasping power.
  7. Acquire decent language experience of both the languages—source language and target language.
  8. Have a decent subject knowledge.
  9. Study the background or be prepared on the subject of the meeting / conference.
