Gather speakers and translators in advance
A little preparation will go a long way in making the conference translate smoothly. It is not uncommon for translators to be asked to "guide" them during lectures, but this practice often leads to unpleasant errors.
Ignorance of the subject and intensive use of technical jargon are just some of the factors that contribute to this type of problem. Interpreter briefing (ideally at least two interpreters working shifts for long conferences) on the topic and the opportunity to ask questions of previous speakers reduces errors in actual presentations.
This type of private meeting also assures the speaker that his message will be correctly interpreted and understood by all participants. When additional clarity is needed (and time permits), translators can prepare their audience by identifying the characters used for new or unfamiliar words, terms, or concepts.
