Zurich, March 15, 2022 - Remote simultaneous interpretation provider, Interprefy, has announced its partnership with Congress Rental Network (CRN), the conferencing network group, to remove language barriers for international conferences.
Founded in 1990, CRN is a worldwide network of conferencing technology specialists, consisting of 45 independent member organisations, covering 5 continents and 43 countries - from Colombia to Australia. Together, the group provides technical solutions in regards to conference, congress, and audiovisual requirements for in-person, virtual, and hybrid international meetings and events, including EU Presidencies, governmental meetings, and various international conferences.
Interprefy and CRN have been maintaining a strong partnership for over 2 years, collaborating closely to combine technical expertise on-site with cloud-based technology that helps simplify the delivery of simultaneous interpretation, ultimately making it more scalable, eco-friendly and cost-efficient.
CRN members regularly leverage Interprefy technology to provide remote simultaneous interpretation services to their clients to break down language barriers and enable people to connect in their own language.
Making it also possible to combine on-site interpretation set up with Interprefy, CRN members can offer their clients greater flexibility and options, such as hybrid setups, with both interpreters working from booths at the venue, as well as some interpreters being connected remotely.
