Our international clients regularly express how pleased they are with the clarity of our translations and the timeliness of our delivery. Key qualities of a translator are the ability to write well in the target language, understand the culture of the country in which the text originated, and be knowledgeable about the subject matter of the translation—including current terminology.

Remote Simultaneous Interpretation (RSI)
Contact us about your interpreting needs for your next virtual event.

Virtual Conferences. Simultaneous interpretation during a video conference such as Zoom is called Remote Simultaneous Interpretation or RSI. The onset of the Covid-19 pandemic has led to a huge increase in video conferences for international communication. This is how we can help:

  • By providing interpretation for online meetings, webinars, workshops or conferences without the need to travel.
  • We work with an efficient, easy to use remote simultaneous interpretation platform.
  • We have sound-proof rooms and an interpretation sound technician on call during meetings.
  • Experience in providing RSI for small 10-person meetings or for 100 people from over 20 countries.
  • We also provide remote interpretation during multi-room events.
  • We can be ready for last-minute meetings when required.
  • Our extensive experience in the field of interpretation will ensure effective communication.
  • Contact us for a personalized, easy to understand, professional quotation.
