    Smile Simultaneous Interpretation

    I noticed there weren't any threads dealing with this unique and specialized area of translation. I work for a company in Miami that specializes in conference interpretation. Contact me with your resume or your conference needs.

    What's the best job that you've done?

    I spent a week listening to Japanese interpretation of a conference on Netsuke (kimono adornment) design, history, myth, etc. That was probably my favorite of the many conferences I've provided for.

    Let us know!

    Hi John,
    Welcome to the forum! and thanks for sharing your experience with us.

    I have many favorites, I can't think of any right now but I really enjoyed one conference that had to do with a food supplement.
    I did not have time to prepare myself cause it was one last minute job request but it turned out ok and I really learned a lot as well.

    I have also posted in another thread one of my worst experiences... I was translating a date and the year 1982 kept coming to my mind in French....couldn't find the English at all!!! what a moment! eventually it came and maybe it took only seconds but to me it was like days!
    Realmente, el destino del mundo depende, en primer lugar, de los estadistas y, en segundo lugar, de los intérpretes.

    Travelling with a group of spanish artists to berlin for a "spanish culture festival" ... and one year later to Cracow (Poland)... I still can't believe I was paid for having such a good time... Last year they went to Budapest and had to change the translator because I don't spek hungarian. But I went there anyway as a friend. Great people...
