This was originally posted on Lantra-L, but I thought many here would enjoy it.

It is a fascinating RealPlayer 30-minute radio broadcast from the BBC on simultaneous interpreting called “Breaking the Language Barrier”.

Topics covered include:
- Interpreting for politicians
- “Interpreting” unpleasant remarks
- Simultaneous interpreting - nerves and stress / speakers correcting the interpreter
- The origins of simultaneous interpreting with interviews from interpreters at the Nuremburg trials
- Thinking ahead of the speaker / “Waiting for the verb”
- Listening and speaking at the same time
- Even the best make mistakes
- “Creative” interpreters
