Remote Simultaneous Interpreting (RSI)

Remote Simultaneous Interpretation (RSI) Platform

Successful Virtual Meetings or Webinars Requires More Than Just a Robust Tech Platform

With a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering and research experience of over 15 years, Dr. Bernard Song has also been a consultant interpreter for the past decade, working with various SI equipment providers and professional interpreters across the world.

With Covid-19 sparking a global work-from-home experiment, clients and interpreters are turning to Remote Simultaneous Interpretation (RSI) platform solutions to ensure business continuation.

Feasibility of the Remote Interpretation Platform

Remote interpreting services are now a smart solution given its feasibility amidst the technological revolution. With the advent of state-of-the-art Cloud and real-time transmission technology, smartphones and other BYOD devices corroborate enterprise-level migration of their applications to the Cloud efficiently. However, there are still several factors to consider in order to organise a successful virtual event on RSI platforms, such as managing a client’s expectation.

Seeking the Counsel of an RSI Expert

Bernard Song and his team offer comprehensive remote interpreting services, removing language barriers between speakers and delegates. Backed by years of expertise, we aim to have clients understand that using an RSI platform requires more than the simple registration of an account and getting everybody to sign in. You need to be well equipped with information, such as cost, scale, the geographical coverage of the audience, adjacency of interpreters, and time zones. Be it an audio meeting or a video conference, the mode of remote interpreting, although flexible and scalable, requires detailed execution for a flawless event.

Not all RSI platforms are created equal. Those who learn about the various platforms by hearsay may risk being misled. The lack of fair comparative evaluation and knowledge on technological differences between platforms may expose clients to blind spots after a decision is made. Therefore, to ensure that you get the right platform, it is best to turn to experts in RSI platform technologies and interpretation. They would be able to give you an impartial evaluation and lead you through a technical deep dive based on your requirements and find the best-fit solution.

An effective RSI expert can help you identify the most cost-efficient solution to your event, plan your project appropriately, and most importantly, familiarise you with the whole RSI operation workflow. When our services are engaged, extensive measures are taken to avoid human errors and other possible issues to ensure a frictionless experience.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Forum had to make a swift decision to move our workshop online and deliver it through a webinar. The content of the workshop was somewhat technical, and the audience mainly used Mandarin as a first language. We engaged the help of Bernard, who provided Forum with remote simultaneous interpretation service. Bernard and his colleagues were truly professional. With a short turnaround time, he and his team were able to grasp the technical content and deliver without missing the intention of the message, which is often the biggest challenge in interpretation. Bernard also has fantastic IT skills and supported us with the webinar test run and set up, making the whole process a lot less stressful, allowing us to focus on content delivery. His vast experience as a consultant interpreter, together with his technical knowledge and hands-on experience in remote simultaneous interpretation service, would benefit any organisation looking to do a multi-language webinar.
