In this present age in which we are living distance is not an excuse to provide a service. There were
times when you used to hire interpreters who make sure their presence in physical form and provide
you with interpretation services but with the advancement of technology now it is possible to interpret
audio and video even by sitting hundred miles away which is termed as remote interpretation.
EFFICIENCY OF REMOTE INTERPRETATION DURING LARGE SCALE EVENT:
Remote interpretation is efficient during a large scale event. It is very vital that when a participant
speaks every other participant in the event must hear the same exact thing irrespective of which
language they speak. For such purpose personal devices like laptop, tablets and mobile are used , if an

bunch of interpreters.

presence of the interpreters there the equipment which is to be used by interpreters, will be replaced by
software which will automatically assess the audio and will interpret it into the required languages.
It has certain advantages:

• It will help to analyze that how many people listened or watched the conference or any event,
and in which corner of the world.

helps to interpret simultaneously. Once such software is used which is programmed to interpret into
different languages this also falls in category of remote interpretation.
