Facts About Chinese Simultaneous Interpreters
1. There are Very Few Chinese Simultaneous Interpreters in the United States
Because of the high demands of Chinese simultaneous interpretation, being a Chinese/English language bilingual is a basic requirement, and a Chinese simultaneous interpreter not only have to be able to interpret consecutively, but also has to be able to render the source language into the target language when the speaker is talking.
Normally, a Chinese simultaneous interpreter needs at least 5 years of basic language learning, 2 years of translation and interpretation training, as well as 2 years of professional simultaneous interpretation training.
2. The Demands for Chinese Simultaneous Interpreters are Rising
With increased exchanges between China and the rest of the world, more and more international conferences and events require Chinese simultaneous interpreters. Another demand comes from courts in the United States as increased Chinese speaking people are involved in legal litigations.
3. Simultaneous Interpreters' Pay and Work Environment
With limited supply and increased demand, Chinese simultaneous interpreters receive a higher pay than Chinese consecutive interpreters. In the US, the minimum pay for a Chinese simultaneous interpreter is $200/hour. In China, it is $120/hour (or 1000 yuan/hour).
In the United Nations, a Chinese simultaneous interpreter
works for 20 minutes and a one hour conference would require three Chinese
simultaneous interpreters, each working 20 minutes.
