TED-Ed provides fascinating insight into the complexities surrounding simultaneous interpretation. This form of interpretation usually involves interpreters who wear headphones and sit in a sound booth while providing real-time interpretation to an audience.
The TED-Ed video not only illustrates the the complex process of simultaneous interpretation, it also shows the incredible hard work of the interpreter. An interpreter devotes considerable time and effort to gain not only mastery of a language, but also understanding of a subject. Over time, this experience actually changes neural pathways in the interpreter’s brain, helping the individual to interpret with greater speed and accuracy.
