Abstract
Simultaneous interpreting is a complex cognitive activity that requires the interpreter to listen to what the speaker says and render it immediately into another language, listen to the speaker’s next message, store the message in memory before retrieving it again for translation, and monitor his or her own output, all at the same time. To overcome the cognitive overloads that are often inevitable during this process, interpreters employ a variety of strategies. This paper introduces the principle of brevity as an effective strategy to overcome the cognitive overloads and the role it plays in Simultaneous interpreting.
