Studies show how simultaneous interpreting is a very heavy cognitive task. The human brain is not designed to speak and listen at the same time.
For this reason, simultaneous interpreters always work in pairs, taking turns of approximately 20-30 minutes each. This is the worldwide professional standard for most simultaneous interpretation scenarios.
