What is Remote simultaneous interpretation (or RSI)

Remote simultaneous interpretation (RSI) is used to integrate interpretation into online and hybrid meetings and events. It describes the process when an interpreter follows the meeting virtually (from home or a remote hub) via an RSI platform and delivers interpretation simultaneously. Every participant will receive a live video & audio feed from the speakers in their own language. Thanks to the technology of remote simultaneous interpretation, participants, speakers and interpreters can connect remotely and interact in their preferred language from anywhere in the world.

RSI is not new. It has been around for years, but due to COVID-19, the majority of  our clients had to look for alternatives to keep their communication going. Thanks to virtual meetings and remote simultaneous interpretation, they could keep meeting and keep offering multilingual interpretation.
