Building bridges between people and languages by conveying every detail, nuance and shade of the message.
In this modality interpreters work in a booth, usually in twos taking turns every thirty minutes. The interpreter hears the speaker through headphones and instantly provides interpretation in the required language via microphone. The listeners in the meeting room follow with headsets. This is the best option, both in terms of efficency and quality, but it may not be suited to all settings.
In this modality there is no simultaneous interpreting equipment. The intepreter stays close to the speaker, taking notes of what is said, before providing his interpretation.
Whispered interpreting is essentially simultaneous interpreting without a booth. The interpreter sits very close to the listener and provides a simultaneous interpretation in a quiet voice.

Having grown up speaking four languages fluently, I initially sought a career as an artist studying at the Berlin Academy of Fine Arts (Universität der Künste) before deciding to become an interpreter.
