Since French was the universal language of diplomacy and educated discourse, there was little need for high-level interpretation in the nineteenth-century Europe. The situation changed dramatically in 1919 at the Paris Peace Conference, when English was pronounced the second official language of the League of Nations and consecutive interpretation was first used.

Interpretation Teams of interpreters are put together on the basis of the languages to be used in the meeting. Two interpreters per booth: meetings with a maximum of six active and/or passive languages;Three interpreters per booth: meetings with a minimum of seven active and/or passive languages. For a meeting with 24 active and passive languages, 72 interpreters would be needed for a full interpreting team. In Parliament's official places of work, all the meeting rooms are equipped with interpreting booths meeting international (ISO) standards.
