Remote interpreting, or RSI, is a technology that allows interpreters to simultaneously translate directly from their PC.
The extraordinary situation caused around the world by the Covid-19 pandemic has called for social distancing measures and practices. This immediately led to the cancellation of conferences and meetings in attendance, while boosting the already rampant organization of online events and conferences.
As in the case of events on the spot, even an online event with participants of different languages needs a key figure for its success: a remote interpreter is the ideal professional to make the speeches accessible to all participants, through simultaneous interpreting from the speaker’s language to that of the participants.
RSI, or Remote Simultaneous Interpreting, is a technology that allows you to continue scheduling and holding events safely.
A speaker who uses his or her original language to make a presentation at an international webinar needs to be translated in real time so that all online participants can fully understand the topics covered. Speakers can speak from home or from their office, as does the interpreter, who listens to the speaker and translates the presentation without waiting for the speaker to take a break, while participants can attend from the comfort of their own home and listen to the simultaneous translation into their language from their PC, tablet or smartphone.
Remote interpreting: how does it differ from simultaneous interpreting on the spot?
Simultaneous interpreting is usually used for large conferences and multilingual congresses: the interpreters, in their soundproof booth, listen in one language and at the same time translate into another, while the participants, provided with headphones, listen to the speaker’s speech translated into their own language. Unlike an on-site conference, where interpreters are at their assigned location, with remote interpreting they can simultaneously translate directly from home or their office.
The professional interpreter follows the original video and audio on the platform used for the event or the online meeting and translates in real time directly on a PC; the connected participants who wish to listen to the simultaneous translation can also do it from home from their computer or through an app on their mobile phone, in a comfortable, simple and user-friendly way.
Online webinars, meetings, videoconferences: RSI makes all these events accessible to large audiences, connected from any location in the same country or even from all over the world, through specific platforms.
