Interpretation

Simultaneous Interpretation

Simultaneous interpretation is the preferred mode, with booths and electronic equipment including transmitters and receivers. It is ideal for groups larger than 10.

Gérard François can provide links with equipment companies, such as CSI and ASET.

Simultaneous interpretation is faster and allows the possibility of multiple languages.

Simultaneous equipment follows ISO standards.
