Simultaneous Interpretation is a key asset when it comes to organising a multilingual conference or event. Simultaneous Interpretation equipment and software ensure speeches and important conversations are expertly conveyed to an audience in a way that can be understood across multiple languages.
The Congress Rental SA team unpacks what Simultaneous Interpretation is, how it works, its benefits and the types of Simultaneous Interpretation offerings.
Simultaneous Interpreting is the process of interpreting speech or important conversations into a language that an audience understands, simultaneously with the speaker. Participants are able to choose their preferred language by switching their receiver channel.
Remote Simultaneous Interpretation (RSI) works in the same way, however, the physical distance between the speaker and the interpreter does not matter as a cloud-based platform is used to manage the interpretation process on a live stream.
In simple terms, a speaker talks into a microphone where his or her speech is broadcast to an interpreter. As the interpreter listens to the speech via headphones, he or she interprets it in real time into a microphone. The interpretation is wirelessly transmitted to the receivers of delegates who need the interpretation.
Remote Simultaneous Interpretation (RSI) has become increasingly popular, especially since the rise of hybrid and remote events. RSI is done through a cloud-based platform, which means that there is no lag, less equipment and no barriers. For RSI to work, language interpreters simply live stream an event and interpret it into the desired language. However, the use of quality equipment and special paid-for platform is required.
Whether your event or conference is remote, hybrid or in-person, Simultaneous Interpretation technology makes important speeches and conversations easily accessible for multilingual audiences. Simultaneous Interpretation ensures inclusivity for multilingual audiences as well as those who require sign language interpreters. In return, audience engagement is boosted. These platforms offer the opportunity to increase your event attendance rate as well as reach thousands of people globally. Organisers are able to produce a flawless, inclusive and accessible experience for all with flexible set-up options and on-going assistance.
For interpreters, Remote Simultaneous Interpretation boasts the benefits of providing ongoing technical support as well as minimal equipment so that interpreters can spend less time on the logistical and technical side of things and spend more time on interpreting – making their experience as easy and stress-free as possible. Interpreters further require the correct setup in order for RSI to work. The benefits for listeners mean that the language barrier is removed and listeners can connect or network with the speaker and other attendees.
