Simultaneous interpretation is the process of interpreting what is said, from one language into another, while it is being said.
Interprenet clients benefit from our global network of qualified interpreters delivering accurate interpretation to audiences everywhere. Attendees enjoy listening to the language of their choice in clear and stable audio on smartphones, laptops or headset receivers.
Onsite Simultaneous Interpretation
Onsite Simultaneous Interpretation (OSI) is the setup when an interpreter is on location, in an enclosed interpretation booth interpreting in real time to an audience listening on headsets or on their smartphones.
This traditional setup of simultaneous interpretation is accompanied by onsite technicians who are responsible for the tech setup, which includes receivers and transmitters.
Remote Simultaneous Interpretation
Remote Simultaneous Interpretation (RSI) is the same quality interpretation provided by an interpreter who is in a remote location, typically in their home studio with a professional setup.
Benefits of RSI:
- Eliminates the need to ship and set up traditional equipment, like soundproof booths and other audio tech needed on location.
- An interpreter no longer needs to travel to the location of the event, conference or meeting.
- RSI greatly reduces the amount of floor space required for setup.
- Contributes to reducing the event's carbon footprint by eliminating the need for technicians and interpreters to travel.

Remote Simultaneous Interpretation Explained
In-Person Meetings and Events
A presenter speaks in one language. Their voice and video are streamed live via web browser to an interpreter located remotely.
An interpreter listens to the speaker on their approved device. Using a high-quality headset and microphone, they interpret what the speaker is saying in real time.
The interpreter's speech is delivered from their computer to the audience via a cloud-based RSI platform. This ensures stable audio, free from delays or drops.
The attendees listen to the interpretation on an app downloaded to their smartphone or mobile device.
As an alternative to the app, attendees can also listen on wireless headset receivers.
Virtual Events and Online Meetings
We can provide RSI seamlessly for any virtual event, including webinars, online meetings or virtual conferences.
As the virtual event organizer, you can use your regular meeting platform like Zoom MS Teams, or Webex. You just send us a meeting invitation as if we were a participant. That way, our interpreters can see and hear everything.
A remote interpreter interprets everything that is said in real-time from the source language into the target language.
Our cloud-based RSI platform enables seamless integration of your meeting with back-and-forth simultaneous interpretation.
Event attendees can listen to the interpretation in the meeting interface or via our smartphone app.
