Our current COVID-19 crisis has hastened a trend that was already taking hold in the field of interpreting: the use of digital platforms for remote interpreting, particularly remote simultaneous interpreting. As technology advances to make remote interpreting more effective, and our circumstances make it more essential, it is important for interpreters to learn about this new modality and add new skills to their professional toolboxes.
In this live, 90-minute webinar, three federally-certified court interpreters—Aimee Benavides, Tamber Hilton, and Ernest Niño-Murcia—will discuss remote interpreting and demonstrate its practice using the simultaneous interpreting feature of the popular video conferencing platform, Zoom. They will provide an introduction to the field of remote interpreting, present practical information on Zoom's simultaneous interpretation settings, discuss equipment and technology requirements, and share a few best practices and protocols for delivering interpreting services remotely.
