Remote interpreting - with real interpreters
Interprefy has developed a cloud-based platform which enables conference delegates to use their smartphones as headsets by using a mobile app. No special on-site equipment is required in order to offer interpreting services – all which is necessary is access to a Wi-Fi connection or a mobile data network. Even more importantly: the interpreters need not be present at the conference venue, but can work remotely – i.e. from home, where they can hear the speakers over VoIP and see them via webcam. This allows clients not only to source and use specialised interpreters from anywhere in the world, but it also enables them to eliminate the interpreters’ travel and accommodation expenses.
