Our Video Remote Interpretation service is a consecutive interpretation service. That means the speaker pauses to allow interpreting in between sentences. it’s best used for one-on-one scenarios or calls where your audience all speaks the same language.

We also offer a Remote Simultaneous Interpretation (RSI) Service, which is when the interpreter speaks at the same time as the presenter. Simultaneous interpretation is a superior solution for classrooms, webinars, conferences, and important business meetings with larger audiences.

Our Remote Simultaneous Interpretation Service is available by appointment only and requires a secondary video service that supports multi-channel audio (such as a Zoom business plan).
