What is Conference Interpretation?

quality conference

Conference interpreters provide both simultaneous and consecutive interpretation services.

Conference interpretation is a separate specialization of language interpretation. Professional conference interpreters provide interpretation (sometimes incorrectly called “translation”) services at international conferences.

Nowadays, it mostly means simultaneous interpretation, because the overwhelming majority of conferences use that mode.

Interpreters who specialize in conference interpretation usually have a Master’s degree in conference interpretation. Best conference interpreters are members of AIIC – the International Association of Conference Interpreters.

Simultaneous conference interpretation gradually replaced consecutive after post WWII Nuremberg Trials.
