Remote simultaneous interpretation (RSI) is expected to have a significant impact on the interpreting profession, and the time is ripe for taking stock of how it may affect the market and the way in which interpretation services are delivered. This seminar will be an opportunity to hear about ongoing research on RSI and discuss the latest technical developments but also possible scenarios for the future. The round table that will follow the presentations will bring together the three speakers and Monica Varela-Garcia, Chief Interpreter at the International Labour Organization (ILO), to allow all participants to engage in a critical debate on this important subject.

SPEAKERS:

  • Klaus Ziegler, AIIC member, Coordinator of the AIIC Technical and Health Committee, on "the latest developments in the field of R(S)I ad the different possible scenarios for the future".
  • Amy Brady, Staff interpreter at UNOG, AIIC member on "Interpretation of Videoconferences at UNOG".

The presentations will be followed by a thought-provoking round table with our panelists and Monica Varela-GarciaChief interpreter at ILO.
