Language professionals rendering a speech in another language without the speaker having to pause are often called "simultaneous translators" (the professionals call themselvers "simultaneous interpreters" really). If you are looking for linguists who can do this for you – primarily in German, English, Spanish or French – get in touch with us, Syntax Sprachen GmbH in Frankfurt, Germany.
Typical example: A Board meeting with simultaneous translators
Here’s a typical example from our portfolio: The Supervisory Board of a large corporation in Frankfurt, Germany has mostly German members, but also some non-German members representing the international parent company. They don't speak German, so they use English instead. Most German members have no problem following what's being said in English, so it may seem natural to ask everyone to speak English. But the meetings are important and everyone needs to make their point clearly. Which is not exactly easy in a foreign language.
Professional linguists, or more precisely real-time translators, are the ideal solution: The Germans will be able to make their point in their mother tongue. The international representatives can follow everything on their earphones and, because the translation is in real time, take part in the discussion as it happens. As former German foreign secretary Hans-Dietrich Genscher once said: Everybody says exactly what they want to say. Not only what they are able to say.
