Justin Bieber, who at the start of his career did not know what or where Germany was, should now know where it is as he is a guest in the ZDF-studio. Justin does not know German.

So, he has been given an earplug and somewhere in the room there must be an interpreter.

Is this a new trend in interpreting?
Are there any among you who have any experience with this. Is it/will it become an alternative to booth-interpreting?

IT'S NOT NEW Mar 21, 2011

This kind of interpreting is very common in Italy. It's not as you say though, the interpreter is not somewhere in the room they have a booth and there are actually two interpreters one translating into the language of the guest for the guest to understand and a second interpreter, preferably a man to trnaslate men and a woman to translate women, interpreting for the audience in the studio and at home in the national language (in this case German). I think they have a booth somewhereelse in the studio and watch the whole thing on monitors as it happens more and more often in conferences too.
