Remote Interpreting Services

Far from the city/ probably stuck in the remote? With remote interpreting services, you are no longer limited by your location. Even at short notice, it is possible to provide a suitable remote interpreter at any time via live video conferencing – which is an ideal way of dealing with Interpreting requirements that arise with little or no warning. With contacts scattered across the country – and the world – and with many working from home, alternative forms of multilingual communication are crucial to productivity.

What is remote interpreting?

Remote interpreting is a type of language interpreting which facilitates communication between speakers of different languages who also happen to be in different locations. Remote interpreting is also known as video remote interpreting, and it is distinct from telephone interpreting. Unlike the traditional interpreting services, remote interpreters do not attend the event in person: instead, they are joining the relevant negotiations, events or conversations, conferences via audio or video link so as to translate the spoken words into the target language. The interpreting provided could involve either the simultaneous interpretation or consecutive interpreting methods. The remote interpreter’s task is to ensure the transmission of information and effective communication between the parties.

When is remote interpreting appropriate?

It is also suitable for communicating with or among the hearing-impaired. Remote interpreting is used in deaf communication contexts in which the interpreter and the hearing impaired person cannot be in the same room. The interpreter uses sign language to convey what is said. Remote interpreting is suitable for events of all sizes, including:

  • Web conferences,
  • Webinars,
  • Interviews,
  • International negotiations,
  • Conferences,
  • Meetings and discussions with customers and business partners.

How does remote interpreting work?

Remote interpreting is a digital form of interpreting, made possible by the use of communication technology. The event location or the parties involved in the discussion are connected via an audio and/or video link to the remote interpreter, who is at a different location. End devices such as computers, tablets or smartphones are suitable for video reception. Good preparation and planning are not the only factors that contribute to the success of international communications mediated by a remote interpreter: In particular, for those who have never taken part in a remote interpretation event before, it is vital to remember to speak into the microphone. This ensures that the interpreter is able to hear and understand everything that is said and reproduce it accurately in the target language. Remote interpreters may use either the simultaneous or consecutive interpreting method. To ensure a smooth process without major delays during the call, certain important technical requirements must be met. These include:

  • A stable connection for data, communications and the Internet.
  • Secure, encrypted data transmission.
  • State-of-the-art attack-proof technology.
  • Highest quality audio and video / short loading times.
  • Image and audio are transmitted almost in real time.
