Remote simultaneous interpretation (RSI) is a method that’s been used for quite some time. However, with the advent of the pandemic, its importance climbed exponentially. It met the necessary requirements for enabling communication when face-to-face conversations weren’t possible.
Living in quarantine became quite common, making virtual communication a part of daily life. Society made significant adjustments to connect, commercialize, and communicate across vast distances.
What is Remote Simultaneous Interpretation (RSI)?
RSI is a form of interpretation that involves speech translation without the need for a person, or group of individuals, to be physically present. Thus, traditional interpreting needs, like booths and receivers, aren’t necessary.
Executing this process properly involves some innovative tech. The interpreter can work remotely and the listener can receive the translation in real-time. All that’s required is an internet connection.
Our interpreters are located in virtual booths, in contrast to traditional booths. That’s where they watch and listen, in real-time, to sessions. It’s also the same place where they interpret and coordinate with colleagues.
Remote interfaces are also very convenient. They allow interpreters to experience an event as if they were physically present. Audiences can also participate in the live event, listening to the interpretation in their language through a computer or mobile device.
