A valuable tool for virtual meetings
Digital or online events were already a reality and grew even more prevalent in 2020, with the need to work from home and for social distancing.
With the advancement of technology and the increased adaptation to a new global reality, Remote Simultaneous Interpretation (RSI), also known as Distance Simultaneous Interpretation, has not only become more important, but is also a valuable tool when holding large virtual meetings involving different languages.
How does it work?
The dynamic of Remote Simultaneous Interpretation is quite simple.
The speaker conveys a message in their original language, from anywhere in the world.
The interpreter, who is connected online in another location, can see and hear the speaker, performing simultaneous interpretation for the audience in a virtual room.
The interpreter therefore linguistically connects participants in different places in real time.
Remote Simultaneous Interpretation can currently be done using a variety of platforms, such as Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, Skype and Zoom. The latter even has a specific module (add-on) for Simultaneous Interpretation.
Participants can access the event from a smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer.
Is this the ideal service for me?
Remote Simultaneous Interpretation is perfect for small, medium or large online events where there are audiences from different linguistic backgrounds and where language cannot be a limiting factor.
For instance, it is ideal for congresses involving an international audience, virtual corporate meetings, seminars, classes and online presentations, team training, online conferences, and other events.
