Translation lag time: As with using any form of translation/interpreter there is lag time between what is spoken and what is translated/interpreted. It is best to remind the people who will be speaking to slow the pace down, take brief pauses, and when reading any formal written document to read slowly. Note: People read at a faster pace than normal speech.
