WE ARE THE CONFERENCE INTERPRETING SPECIALISTS
WHAT IS SIMULTANEOUS INTERPRETATION?
The interpreters sit in a soundproof booth, listen to the proceedings through earphones and speak into a special microphone simultaneously with the speaker, without pauses and interruptions.
SounDXB is managed by certified conference interpreters.
Our interpreters are UN-qualified and belong to global professional associations, including AIIC, IAPTI, ATA etc.
CHOOSING A CONFERENCE INTERPRETER
1. Always demand a CV, including when dealing with an agency.
2. Make sure the interpreter has specialized conference interpreting training and experience, not just translation.
Simultaneous interpretation requires two professional conference interpreters and specialized equipment.
Only the best interpreters with specialized training and years of professional conference practice can deliver quality simultaneous interpretation.

5. When dealing with agencies, make sure the interpreter whose CV you saw during the selection process is asigned to your event.
SIMULTANEOUS INTERPRETATION PROCESS
Simultaneous interpreters work from specially designed sound-proof translation booths equipped with the necessary equipment, including a special interpreter desk. They listen to the proceedings through earphones and relay the message in a target language in real-time, with no pauses or interruptions.
The interpreters should have a clear view of the speaker and must hear him/her clearly. This is where professional interpretation equipment and technical support are of utmost importance.
Conference interpreters always work in pairs, in shifts of 20-30 minutes due to the very stressful and demanding nature of their function. This task is so demanding for a human brain that it requires a natural predisposition and years of practice. Thus only a handful of good language experts ever join the ranks of the elite of the linguistic profession - the close circle of professional conference interpreters.
We are privileged to cooperate with some of the best conference interpreters in the world, and are in a position to offer this unique service for multinational conferences, workshops, trade shows, exhibitions, press conferences, presentations, seminars, business meetings, symposiums, forums, summits and road shows.
OTHER TYPES OF INTERPRETATION SERVICES
SounDXB offers a full range of interpretation services in Dubai in more than 50 languages, specializing particularly in the area of simultaneous interpretation.
SounDXB only works with full-time professional interpreters with genuine linguistic background and hundreds of successful conferences behind their belts. Whether the requirement is to interpret from Arabic to English or from French to Russian, we have the team to deliver your message accurately and effectively.
After completing 2-3 sentences, the speaker pauses and waits for the translator to communicate the message to the audience. This takes twice the time and can be tiring for the speaker and the audience.
This is similar to simultaneous interpretation, but there is no equipment and the audience is limited to just a few people. The interpreter actually whispers the translated content to the listeners.
TOUR GUIDE INTERPRETATION
The interpreter uses a portable transmitter & participants listen to the interpretation using portable radio receivers. Great for facility tours and interpretation on the go in unequipped venues. Click here for more.
