Remote Interpreting (RI)
Interpreting (RI)

Remote Interpreting (RI) refers to the prac­ti­ce of inter­pre­ting by tele­pho­ne, video or Internet. The inter­pre­ters are not pre­sent at the event, ins­tead inter­pre­ting from ano­ther loca­ti­on. The most com­mon form of this type of inter­pre­ting is simul­ta­neous, and is thus cal­led Remote Simultaneous Interpreting (RSI).

We recom­mend using so-cal­led “inter­pre­ting hubs” for inter­pre­ting of this kind as they allow the inter­pre­ters to work in pro­fes­sio­nal con­di­ti­ons for mul­ti­l­in­gu­al events taking place as video or tele­pho­ne con­fe­ren­ces. Of cour­se, video / tele­pho­ne con­fe­ren­ces are only a tem­po­ra­ry solu­ti­on and are not recom­men­ded long-term. There are many important aspects of con­fe­ren­ces that they can­not cater to, in par­ti­cu­lar the oppor­tu­ni­ty for inter­na­tio­nal par­ti­ci­pan­ts to meet per­so­nal­ly. However, they do make it pos­si­ble to con­ti­nue pro­vi­ding simul­ta­neous inter­pre­ting at con­fe­ren­ces in times of Covid-19.

Our long-term part­ner com­pa­ny for con­fe­rence tech­no­lo­gy has alre­a­dy set up inter­pre­ting hubs for remo­te simul­ta­neous inter­pre­ting. Please cont­act us for more information.
