Summary/Abstract: This paper deals with a specific form of simultaneous interpreting that is called sight translation, meaning that the interpreter reads a text elaborated in a language not understood by the signee of a document and which therefore must be translated for that person. This kind of translation is considered to be a form of simultaneous interpreting because it is an on-line or real-time rendering of a written text in oral form (reading in language B a text written in language A).
