What is remote simultaneous interpretation (or RSI)?

Simultaneous interpretation is defined by ISO, the International Standards Organisation as;

"the process of rendering a spoken or signed message into another spoken or signed language, preserving the register and meaning of the source language."

Add “remote” to the equation and it is possible for interpreters, speakers and participants to interact from anywhere on the planet.

Why use a remote simultaneous interpretation service?

The traditional interpretation is less flexible and interpreters are required on-site. 

As a result, customers can spend a part of their budget on equipment and travel for interpreters, that is limited in terms of availability and language/specialisation options. 

Remote simultaneous interpretation removes the need for equipment and interpreters being on site. This allows you to run events at short notice and with minimal infrastructure and, if necessary, entirely online.

And because events can be run remotely, you can increase the number of languages you offer as you no longer need to worry about flying rare-language interpreters over.

When can remote simultaneous interpretation services be used?

Remote Simultaneous Interpretation (RSI) enables meeting to be hosted online, there’s no need for interpreters to be on-site and attendees can essentially participate digitally. You can use the service for:

  • Conferences
