Simultaneous interpretation is the process of interpreting what is said, from one language into another, while it is being said.

Though historically it was offered by in-person interpreters, in the last few years remote interpretation has revolutionized the industry by providing equivalent interpreting services at a fraction of the cost.

Interprenet is the world’s largest network of remote simultaneous interpreters delivering high-quality interpretation to global audiences through our smartphone app. Attendees enjoy listening to the language of their choice in crystal-clear audio on smartphones, laptops or headset receivers.
What is Simultaneous Interpretation vs Remote Simultaneous interpretation (RSI)?
Simultaneous Interpretation (SI) – Simultaneous interpretation is an exercise in speed. In the simultaneous mode, interpreters must think extremely quickly and in two different languages, as they interpret everything said by the speaker in real time to the audience listening on smartphones or other devices.
Remote Simultaneous Interpretation (RSI) – Simultaneous interpretation services can be provided by in-person interpreters or remote interpreters. Remote simultaneous interpreting eliminates the need for traditional equipment like conventional soundproof booths and greatly reduces the amount of floor space required for setup.

I can’t express enough how thankful I am you all were able to assist us in Zurich for the meeting yesterday. I spoke to Lisa and Deanna the planners handling the meeting and they said everything went great! Your simultaneous translation [interpreting] service is a valuable resource which we will continue to use in the future.

How does Remote Simultaneous Interpretation (RSI) Work for Regular Meetings and Events?

Speaker – a presenter speaks in one language. Their voice and image are streamed live to a remote interpreter, typically through a web browser on a laptop or desktop computer.
Interpreter(s) – an interpreter hears and sees the speaker on their approved device. Using a high-quality headset and microphone, they translate the speaker’s language into a second language, in real-time.
Audience – attendees can listen to the interpretation on the interpreting app downloaded to their mobile device.
Soundproof booths and headsets – if in-person interpreters are needed, they can work in fully enclosed sound isolation booths. As an alternative to the smartphone app, attendees can also listen to simultaneous interpretation on wireless headset receivers or the electronic device of their choice.
