Simultaneous interpretation is also called real-time interpreting. During this translation, the interpreter resides in a closed enclosure with sound insulation and communicates with the audience through a microphone directly connected to the headphones of the audience. During simultaneous interpretation, the speaker's voice is transmitted to the interpreter simultaneously via a headset, and the interpreter transmits the same speech in the language of the audience. This interpreting technique has recently been used with great interest in some social media applications. In 2015, Translator, the translation application of Microsoft, introduced an update to multi-device support, giving users a very comfortable chat experience, even with someone completely unfamiliar with their language. In recent periods, it has been announced that the simultaneous interpreting feature has been introduced into Skype by adding more up-to-date and more advanced features.
WHAT IS SKYPE?
Skype is a widely used chat application that provides users with voice and video calls over an internet connection. The internet application, which was previously used only for the purpose of video conversation without the translation feature, provided simultaneous interpreting in nine different languages with the developed features. With this feature, simultaneous interpreting in English, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, German, French, Chinese, Arabic, and Russian languages have been started through the Skype application. Following these languages, the application has been further developed and Skype has been working with Microsoft Translator for a long time. It aimed to increase the application to the next level by adding Japanese, which is one of the most challenging languages in terms of reading, understanding, and structure. With these new features, it seems that Skype has successfully accomplished its goal of attracting both the tourism audience and many business-related inputs and outputs on its own application. To use the simultaneous interpreting feature via the Skype application, simply click on the shortcut of the application and select the world icon. In order to be able to use this feature between our own language and world languages in the future, we are proud to continue to follow the development of technology and we support you, hoping that Microsoft Translator and Skype will continue to work.
