With the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, remote meetings and events have become a normal part of work for every organization. Remote Simultaneous Interpreting (RSI) has become a necessity for any multilingual online event.
The main difference with traditional interpretation is that in RSI interpreters work remotely. The technical set-up allows them to see and hear the event as if they were present onsite. The interpretation is streamed in real time to the audience through a web application on their mobile devices.
RSI has numerous benefits and it is becoming the new normal. It reduces the costs of interpretation without compromising on the quality. RSI is suitable for online meetings of any size, ranging from small workshops, to large international conferences.
