Conference Interpreting

Remote
Interpreting

Your remote conference call, web meeting or stakeholder update can now be interpreted simultaneously in the languages of your choice. All necessary web-meeting features will be tailored to your needs. Presenters will share their screens and each participant will receive a copy of the presentation in their own language. The interpreters are located off-site.

Participants join from the comfort of their office or home if travel to a meeting location is not possible. Participants can also gather at one location and have the interpreters at another location. Alternatively, a mixed solution with some participants in a meeting room and some based remotely may be best for your specific circumstances.

Talk to us. We will find the best solution for you.

Specialised
Interpreters

Simultaneous live interpretation in up to 30 languages for any meeting, conference or event. We work with a rich pool of outstanding interpreters throughout Europe. Catering beyond Europe, and for your conference calls and virtual meetings, we offer web-based interpreting solutions – please see brochure below.

We facilitate European Works Council meetings from their inception as Special Negotiating Bodies to their regular and extraordinary meetings. We have accumulated a wealth of experience in this field since the adoption of the European Works Council Directive in 1994.

Technical
Equipment

High performing technical equipment including headphones and microphones for the participants and sound-proof booths for the interpreters will be made available at your meeting venue. Based on your vision of the meeting, we will provide the equipment needed.

For your virtual meetings, we provide the software platform as well as initial training for your presenters or chair person. Participants are required to wear a headset of their own choice – please see brochure above. Our consultant interpreter and technical partners are available to advise you.

Our technicians and interpreters will work hand in hand to afford all participants a seamless listening and speaking experience across all languages.
