Transitioning from Onsite Event Interpretation to Remote Simultaneous Interpretation (RSI)
September 16, 2020
Within the past six months, our world has changed in how we do day-to-day business. Social gatherings have been limited, meetings are mostly virtual through multiple platforms, and working from home is now the new norm.
As we transitioned from onsite event interpretation, remote simultaneous interpretation (RSI) was put in place. With online interpretation virtual events can now be held worldwide, efficiently and safely
What is RSI?
Broken into its core components RSI is a way for interpreters to work from anywhere around the globe via the internet. Interpreters virtually attend the event and interpret in real time. One major benefit to this approach is that it also enables attendees to join the event from anywhere worldwide. As this is a relatively new technology, ProLingo was in the forefront and developed an easy-to-use platform, with the needs of the interpreters and audience equally in mind. making ProLingo’s RSI platform a top choice for your next event.
How does it work?
Powered by our cloud-based platform, the interpreter connects via the internet to the event. Audio from the interpreter is sent to the event server where it is then distributed to the audience. Attendees have the choice of joining in through any Android or iOS devices or via a web browser.
How will RSI enhance hybrid events?
As meeting places slowly begin introducing audiences again, the RSI model will continue to offer a choice for interpreters to work offsite. Having the possibility of having interpreters onsite or offsite will allow for greater flexibility for future events.
With solutions such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and Google Meet allowing for virtual meetings to be possible and simple, it is quite easy to host your event while following social distancing guidelines. We have a large network of highly qualified interpreters that can be provided for your event and are trained using our platform.
