Interpreters for the largest meeting platforms

We offer remote interpretation for meeting platforms such as:

  • Skype
  • Microsoft Teams
  • Zoom
  • GoToMeeting
  • WebEx
  • Google Hangouts
  • and Slack.

Our team can advise you on preparing for the meeting, and our interpreter technicians can assist you with technology and equipment.

Accredited interpreters with the right special skills

Most of our interpreters are members of the AIIC and are accredited by the EU. They can interpret for both the private and public sectors. Semantix offers both simultaneous interpretation (interpretation during speech, via parallel audio channel) and consecutive interpretation (interpretation after speech).

Our interpreters meet one or more of the following requirements:

  • Are an approved member of the International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC).
  • Are an EU-certified conference interpreter.
  • Hold a master’s degree in conference interpretation from a university or college or have completed other equivalent conference interpreter training abroad.
  • Are regularly engaged by one of the UN bodies, EU institutions, the Nordic Council or have equivalent qualifications, combined with solid experience.

Remote simultaneous interpreting, RSI

Remote simultaneous interpreting (RSI) means that communication is interpreted from one language to another while the speech is taking place. Simultaneous remote interpreting takes place through a browser-based platform adapted for simultaneous interpretation at multilingual meetings, conferences and congresses.

Meeting participants connect to the platform from their respective locations and can speak any language as well as listen to their desired language through real-time, i.e. simultaneous, interpretation.

Simultaneous online interpretation not only places high demands on the interpreter, but also on the equipment and technical expertise. Our interpreters will either be in a technician-controlled studio environment, a hub or at home.

Semantix has access to several meeting platforms particularly suited for remote simultaneous interpreting purposes.

Before the meeting, we have a conversation with you and recommend the right platform and solution for your meeting.

What are the benefits of video interpretation?

Video interpretation has several advantages. Here are a few:

  • You can avoid physical meetings in cases of illness or risk of infection, or when a physical meeting is simply not possible.
  • You avoid hotel and travel costs.
  • You get access to a wider range of interpreters because you don’t need the interpreter to be physically present, enabling you to hire internationally.

What should I consider when hiring a video interpreter?

Please consider:

  • having access to a working webcam
  • and ensuring a stable connection as well as using headphones with a microphone.
