Remote interpreting is very popular today
Remote community interpreting is usually carried out by telephone or with a video call service. The people who need interpreting are usually in the same room, but the interpreter participates over a telephone or video connection. Remote interpreting is a fast and cost-efficient solution for public service situations in which people do not share a common language.
In conference interpreting, different digital platforms that enable remote simultaneous interpreting have become increasingly common. The platforms may run as stand-alone negotiation, streaming and interpreting platforms or their interpreting functionality may be integrated with other common videoconferencing platforms (Teams, Zoom, GoToMeeting, WebEx, etc.). Zoom is the only platform that offers a simultaneous interpreting functionality to its users. In addition to interpreting skills, a remote interpreting service requires interpreters to be somewhat tech-savvy and familiar with offering remote simultaneous interpreting with the platform in question.
