Remote interpreting services in London

Get remote simultaneous interpreting anytime, anywhere – for any size of audience and in any number of languages. All you need is a smartphone or a laptop to listen through. Your language specialist does the rest.

Simultaneous interpreters – sometimes known as conference interpreters – translate what you are saying and what is being said around you in real time. There’s no need to wait for the person to whom you’re listening to finish what they’re saying – your linguist provides instant oral translation.

We provide conference interpreters with many, many years of experience in all industry sectors and in any language you care to name. Now linking this expertise with ultra high-bandwidth connected smart technology along with our ever-present award-winning processes, we’re able to give you the kind of convenient language services usually found amongst delegates at the UN.

Why choose remote simultaneous interpreting?

Your linguist will be sitting in a silent, relaxed environment – usually at your closest translation agency or AV company office. This enables them to focus clearly on the task at hand without needing to spend time or charge you money for travelling to where you are.

This all means that remote simultaneous interpreting services offer the best of all worlds:

  • Simply use your smartphone, laptop or tablet and listen to real live interpreters
  • Benefit from highly reliable, high-quality cloud-based platform and event support
  • Hire the best language specialists in the world without paying huge logistics costs

Not only does this make linking you with the most skilled and suitable conference interpreting specialist easier than ever, it also dramatically reduces your carbon footprint by eliminating the pollution generated by driving.

Guinness World Records

Your pre-event management and quality assurance

You’ll get professional project management and remote technical support before your event even starts. We then move onto monitoring the quality of service you receive during your event. This makes sure that you receive reliable, uninterrupted service throughout – assisted by full-band audio with a 20kHz bandwidth at a 48kHz sample rate.

If you prefer to use a more traditional headset with a standard IR/ radio receiver, we’re ready and willing to supply them.

We can provide language specialists with qualifications and experience in all industry sectors, so your linguist will know the technical terminology used in the business you’re in.

Might Video Remote Interpreting be the best option for you?

Adding a video feed to your translated conversation lets you see all of the participants face to face.

This is called Video Remote Interpreting (VRI). It’s the best way to interact at a distance. Because when you can see the other person’s face, every subtle nuance of communication can be seen.

With VRI, you can have multiple parties in different locations and still have access to specialist interpreters in your industry. Be it medical, legal or any sector of business.

Just like our other remote interpreting services, to set up VRI all you need is a desktop or tablet. In this case, you will need a webcam in addition to a microphone, speakers and solid internet connection.

We regularly provide video remote interpreting services for:

  • Medical appointments and healthcare consultations
  • Legal consultations
  • Employee training and orientation
  • Police interviews
  • Seminars, webinars and workshops
  • Parent and teacher meetings
  • Business meetings

Frequently Asked Questions

What is remote interpreting?

Remote interpreting lets you connect with your intended audience and a specialist interpreter at the same time either via phone or videoconferencing software, a microphone and speakers or headphones.

What are Video Remote Interpreting services?

Sometimes written as VRI, Video Remote Interpreting is delivered via videoconferencing software.

This means it has a serious advantage compared to other remote interpreting solutions. That’s because critical non-verbal conversational cues can also be caught and verbally translated.

Why would I choose remote interpreting?

Remote interpreting services are often the best choice when you are looking for interpretation which is:

  • Highly cost-effective
  • Available even in remote locations
  • Bookable at short notice, even on-demand
When should I use Video Remote Interpreting?

VRI is suitable for almost any situation where you need an interpreter.

In particular, you might use VRI when you want to save money on interpreting services, minimise your carbon footprint, when you or your audience are based in a remote location or when you need language support in an emergency.

Of course, they’re also the ideal solution when social distancing or other requirements make a physical meeting difficult or impossible.

What languages can I get remote interpreting for?
You can use Asian Absolute to source specialist interpreters in more than 120 languages. No matter your field, we’ll find you an interpreter with matching qualifications and/or experience.
Does remote interpreting work for sign languages?
Yes. A major advantage of Video Remote Interpreting is that it enables signed as well as spoken language support.

At Asian Absolute, we regularly provide remote sign language interpreting in British Sign Language (BSL), Sign Supported English (SSE), American Sign Language (ASL), Australian Sign Language (Auslan) and many others.
