European Parliament interpretation – videos

Dear interpreters,

Are there any videos from the European Parliament in which two voices can be heard – the original non-English speech (in my case Polish) and the English interpretation. This is an example:
http://youtu.be/XF8n5vvpOUk?t=3m47s (it starts at 3:47)
However, it seems that the original voice is muted when the interpreter starts speaking. It would be preferable if two voices could be heard at the same time. But it would also be great if I could find separate videos – ones with original speeches in Polish and the others with interpretations in English. And I'm not looking for specific speeches, I would like to analyze and learn from English interpretations of any speeches in Polish.

Thanks!

How about EU Parliament TMXs instead? Jan 18, 2015

Hi lucretius,

A slightly different approach, but have you also considered getting your hands on bilingual documents (TMXs) made from European Parliament speeches and documents? I have tons of EU bilingual material, but Dutch/English.

Have a look here for your language pair:

If you go to the website above, you should be able to watch plenty of videos on various subjects and change languages as you wish, i.e. you can listen to the original speech first and then listen to the interpreter.

What you are asking for is only done in very badly dubbed filmsicon_smile.gif
