Types of interpreting 

Conference interpreting

This type of interpreting is used at international conferences where there is more than one working language. Conference interpreting is usually simultaneous interpreting and requires special equipment (booths, microphones, headphones). There is one booth in the room for each working language. Interpreters work in the booths and participants, using special headsets, choose the language they want to hear. Conference interpreting requires special training, development of techniques and knowledge of specialised topics. Moreover, since most conferences are usually long, interpreters work in groups of two and alternate between each other every half hour. This is because interpreting is a highly demanding mental task and regular rotation is necessary to maintain a high level of performance.
