What Is Remote Virtual Interpreting?

Remote virtual interpreting, also known as video remote interpreting (VRI), is a type of interpreting that uses special software to deliver the interpreting service. Participants of an international business meeting, conference, or any other event in which remote interpreting is used communicate with the interpreter or interpreters with internet-connected devices, such as a phone, a computer, or a tablet.

It is worth mentioning that it is possible to also hire such a service for those who are hard of hearing and need to communicate in sign language (ASL).

Remote Virtual Interpreting – The Benefits

There are plenty of benefits when it comes to VRI. The most obvious one is that it makes communication easier – however, that can be said about any time of interpretation or translation.

So, if we’re talking specifically about VRI, the most important benefit that needs to be mentioned is its efficiency. Life is full of situations that we cannot predict, and there might be a time when your company organizes an event at the last minute and finds itself in need of an interpreter.

With VRI, an interpreter can be available even the same day, depending on their work schedule, as there’s no need for getting from one location to another. They can provide their services to your company from their office, or even the comfort of their own home. This not only makes it easier for the interpreter, as they save time but also for you and your company, as you don’t need to worry about providing things like accommodation or specific technology that is required for on-site interpreting.

What’s more, because everything is done through the internet, you can hire professional high-quality interpreters, with years of experience without worrying about where they are based, as the only thing they will need to provide you with their service is internet access and a piece of technology, such as a laptop and microphone for quality audio. This also means that it will be easier for you to find an interpreter for languages that are not as common as, for example, Spanish or French.

Hiring a video remote interpreting service can also help you win over clients. It goes without saying that people would rather do business with those that actually put effort into convincing them to do so. So, if, for example, they have a person who has problems with hearing in their team, and you hire a sign language interpreter for your meeting with them, they will see that you wanted to make sure that there are no problems with communication and that everyone is as comfortable as possible.
