Hybrid Simultaneous Interpreting
Hybrid meetings with simultaneous interpreting have been around for some time, but the health crisis increased the need to connect onsite participants with remote participants to save time and money in cost-efficient meetings.
Hybrid meetings involve the in-person presence of participants talking face-to-face to each other, who are simultaneously connected to remote or virtual participants logging in via a videoconferencing application or platform.
In hybrid setups, interpreters can be connected physically or virtually depending on the degree of required in-person interpreting service at the meeting venue. If interpreters are expected to support delegates during breaks, joint meals or mobile visits it is recommended to have the interpreters onsite.
The most cost-efficient solution in hybrid meetings is to connect online attendees and online interpreters to a local hub or studio, from which the presenters can deliver their presentations, followed by an online Q&A.
