RSI Webinar for conference interpreters, event agencies and business
Date and time to be determined
Remote simultaneous interpreting (RSI) has been in the spotlight during recent months due to the lockdown and Covid-19 pandemic worldwide. Of course, RSI emerged long before that, however, many of us, conference interpreters, turned out to be totally unprepared for the new reality we are facing and high-tech working tools we are offered. To meet this demand for information and experience sharing we, conference interpreters - Natalia Fedorenkova, Vladimir Shirokov and Victoria Moroz, decided to set up this Webinar for our colleagues and business partners.
1. Introduction into RSI
What is RSI. How does it work. Technical guide for interpreters and event organizers. Technical requirements for the interpreter's home office.
2. Most popular RSI platforms
Comparison of 5 most popular RSI platforms worldwide. Strong and weak points. Bottlenecks. Experience sharing and personal advice.
3. Interpretation function in Zoom
Simultaneous interpreting in Zoom: how does it work. How many languages/audio channels are there? Relay and handover. Strong and weak points.
4. Simultaneous interpreting using available conference programs
What other ways we have to provide interpretation. If the clients are limited by the conference programs within their IT infrastructure.
5. Q&A session
The speakers will answer all the questions from attendees posted in the chat or on air. The participants can also share their RSI experience

Thanks a lot for the webinar! Actually within an hour after the webinar I received a call from a potential direct client and thanks to Vladimir, Victoria and you I managed to clearly explain the RSI options. The knowledge I got on the webinar was very helpful!

Thank you all for such an insightful webinar! Today our company had an online conference and I had a chance to try RSI. Eventually, it was a consecutive, not simultaneous, interpreting but thanks to your webinar I was ready for anything!
Thank you for organizing such a helpful webinar and sending the participants all your slides! When my clients had problems connecting to a Zoom conference I provided them with screenshots from your presentation and we managed to quickly settle it all. We have successfully moved online, everyone is happy with the result. Thanks again for the webinar: it was very timely indeed!
