Simultaneous interpretation (SI) is when an interpreter translates the message in real-time, uninterrupted by the speech, as the speaker continues speaking. This way the natural flow of the speaker is not disturbed and allows for a fairly smooth output for the listeners.
Examples include interpreting for conferences, presentation, summits, roundtables, delegation visits, trainings, and start-up roadshows. Commonly used in academic and business settings.

Whispered interpreting/ Chuchotage
For site visits and tours, whispered interpreting is more appropriate. The interpreter whispers in the target language to one or two listener(s) in a simultaneous mode, typically without the aid of SI equipment.
