Interpreters are not writers; they are speakers. They make it possible for people who do not speak the same language to talk to one another. A simultaneous interpreter interprets what the speaker says as the speaker says it. A consecutive interpreter waits until the speaker has finished talking and then interprets. Simultaneous interpreters need speed; consecutive interpreters need a good memory. Both need accuracy.
