Simultaneous interpreters at the 1945 Nuremberg Trials

The Nuremberg Trials were a historically significant event – one that laid the foundations of international criminal justice as we know it today. The trials also witnessed the breakthrough of another phenomenon that has been shaping international economic and political relations ever since: the art of simultaneous interpreting. Without the contribution of the interpreters, the four-language proceedings of 1945 would not have been possible.

“One trial – four languages: The breakthrough for simultaneous interpreting and its consequences” is a series of events that presents the historical developments leading on from the Nuremberg Trials and the work of interpreters today. This includes the specificities of court interpreting, the deployment of interpreters in conflict zones and interpreting at present-day international criminal courts and tribunals.

Those Incredible Interpreters

Written by Singapore on . Posted in News

Interpreting is one of the most difficult linguistic skills

Have you ever sat down in an interpreter’s booth, put on the headphones and tried to interpret the incoming speech? I did when I was a young and rather naive student who thought that being bilingual meant one could interpret simultaneously. No sooner had I started that problems arrived. As I was outputting the first sentence, the second one was already coming in but I hadn’t paid enough attention to it. I remembered its beginning but not its ending. Very quickly I fell behind and I just couldn’t say anything more after a few minutes!
