With borders blurred by globalization, it is more critical than ever to be able to conduct business in any language. Businesses and governments worldwide have an opportunity to better serve their clients and expand their reach by providing service in more than just one or two core languages. Remote, on-demand interpreting services across various platforms (such as telephone and video) preserve cultural accuracy and the human element, while also leveraging technological innovation to allow faster connections and better communication. This presentation will explore the rise of remote interpreting, looking at how far we’ve come, and where we can go.
