Simultaneous Conference Interpreting (SI) (see Simultaneous interpreting; Conference interpreting) has always been intricately linked with technology since it emerged and developed as a technology-dependent solution to the ever increasing number of international meetings with multiple languages. The initial attempt with this mode was made as early as 1928 at the ILO Conference though it was undoubtedly during the Nuremberg Trials in 1944–45 that SI came to public attention (Gaiba 1998). Nevertheless, it took a number of years before reservations regarding this mode, particularly concerns over the level of accuracy attainable, were overcome. The first interpreting school founded in 1941 in Geneva only introduced SI in 1947.
