After the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, most companies moved their conferences, meetings, and seminars online. This is why may choose Remote Simultaneous Interpreting services to enable their online events.
Langpros started offering RSI services long before the pandemic. In early 2019, we perfected our skills by interpreting for a workshop organized by Thermo King, a leading company in transport refrigeration. Thanks to RSI, the audience in Abu Dhabi could select their preferred language channel from their mobile device and get live translation from our interpreters based in Europe. This mode allowed us to provide translation in English, French, German, Italian, Polish, and Russian.
What is RSI?
During any multilingual event such as conferences, workshops, and business meetings, simultaneous interpreters provide real-time translations of what is being said while the speaker keeps talking.
Simultaneous interpreters usually attend the event working from soundproof booths at the venue, while the audience listens to the translation using headsets.
Simultaneous interpreting is very effective, but it can be costly if interpreters are not available on-site and need to be flown from abroad. It can also be hard to set up if there is limited space for translation booths and all the required equipment.
Remote simultaneous interpretation is a possible way to overcome such limitations and further the potentialities of simultaneous interpretation thanks to cloud technology.
Remote Simultaneous Interpretation consists in connecting speakers at conferences or meetings with their multilingual audience via translations provided by simultaneous interpreters working from remote locations.
As an example, the conference might be held in Dubai while, at the same time, native qualified professional interpreters Japanese-English are providing real time simultaneous interpreting from their working station in Tokyo, with no need to fly to the UAE just to attend the event.
How does it work?
Before the event, specialized technicians set up the speakers’ audio and video outputs. The audio and video stream are transmitted to interpreters working from their office or a designated translation center in their own country and the translation is provided to the audience in real time without any delay. It is possible to set up the streaming for several languages at the same time.
The simultaneous interpretation is streamed to the audience through a web application that can be installed on smartphones, tablets, or laptops. Attendees can also follow the event from remote through the application. If preferred, traditional conference headsets can also be used.
Our expert event managers will be available throughout the duration of the event, monitoring the quality of the interpreting and facing any possible issue. Moreover, our specialized technicians will take care of the setup and cleanup of technical equipment and will be available on-site during the event.
