    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?

    Firstly, we need to know what simultaneous interpretation is? Traditional interpretation is broken: it requires a lot of time and money to configure and manage, and interpreters are required on-site. 

    As a result, you spend a considerable amount of your budget on equipment, travel and accommodation for interpreters, that are limited in terms of availability and language/specialisation options. 

    However, 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. Read this page to learn how to find the best online event platforms and RSI service providers.

    How RSI technology helps connect you to your audiences

    Language, when you think about it, is the most important way we have of learning about each other, our universe and our place in it. It opens our minds to a world of ideas, all of which we share, shape and develop.

    This is why multilingualism is so important for events and meetings in our increasingly interconnected world – it enables us to understand each other and better collaborate. Want to know what the sound delay between the speaker and the interpretation is with Inteprefy's RSI?
