Conferences, meetings, and events have moved from physical spaces to the digital landscape. Through video conferencing tools like Zoom, Cisco-Webex, BlueJeans, Skype, Google Hangouts, etc., organizations such as Herbalife Nutrition and Instituto Cervantes de Manila are finding new ways to communicate with their audiences as face-to-face interaction remains restricted in most parts of the globe.
Earlier this year, Herbalife Nutrition utilized Remote Simultaneous Interpretation (RSI), an online interpretation setup, for their Online Business Builder Event with more than 500 attendees to interpret 2 languages. Instituto Cervantes de Manila also held an RSI event for their online lecture, which was attended by 400 multilingual participants, with Money Heist’s head writer and executive co-producer, Javier Gómez Santander.
As can be seen, virtual meetings have grown exponentially since the rise of the pandemic, but it will never replace the intimacy of live events. However, through the cost-effective RSI solution, online gatherings can become inclusive events in the comfort and safety of any space
Understanding Remote Simultaneous Interpretation
Remote Simultaneous Interpretation (RSI) enables you to work with off-site interpreters for multilingual events anywhere in the world. Through this technology, interpreters can provide seamless interpretation support through online streaming. Audiences can then tune in to events by selecting any of the available languages through a mobile application.
Compared to other interpretation setups, RSI is more affordable as clients no longer need to shoulder fees for the interpreter’s transportation and accommodation. In addition, because expensive audio equipment is not necessary, there are also no rental fees.
On the other hand, delegates can freely download the app from the Google Play Store or App Store to listen to the event’s interpretation, as opposed to renting individual interpretation receivers. As a result, clients can save up to 50% of their budget without sacrificing the quality of the interpretation.
RSI enables international audiences to overcome language barriers. As such, businesses and organizations can welcome new opportunities by reaching people they never thought were possible. No geographical boundary can stand in the way of connecting event organizers and diverse participants from all over the world.
There is also no shortage of competent interpreters or limit to the number of languages being interpreted. Through improvements in an event’s accessibility, virtual meetings can be as good as personal interactions.
With countless factors to facilitate, event organizers are always pressed for time and plagued with logistical headaches. RSI, however, offers minimal equipment setup and can be deployed without delay. Moreover, getting the right interpreters would not be a problem as they can be contacted for any event at short notice.
A reliable technical support team is also on standby before, during, and after the event to ensure that it runs as smoothly as possible. No event too big or too long for our team.
