Despite a growing roster of RSI platforms, Interprefy is one that I keep going back to again and again, thanks to its user-friendly interface and unrivalled tech support.
For those who aren’t as familiar with RSI (aka Remote Simultaneous Interpreting), it’s a great solution for international training courses, webinars, presentations, board meetings and more with a global attendee list. The attendees can listen to the presentation in their own language via the remote interpreter, whilst simultaneously following along with the speaker. You, your attendees and the interpreter can be anywhere in the world.
What is Interprefy?
Interprefy is a cloud-based platform offering remote simultaneous interpreting for events and meetings. It has been built specifically to integrate seamlessly with online conferencing platforms and features an array of tools to optimize the user experience.
For clients, there’s no limit to the number of languages supported, and Interprefy works with hundreds of partners worldwide so, no matter the mix of languages required, you will always be supported with your requirements. Plus, because event and meeting organisers don’t need to fly in interpreters, pay for hotels and organize for interpreting equipment to be installed, they can enjoy a stress-free and cost-effective service.
For interpreters, Interprefy offers extensive training delivered by its in-house training team, technical support both before and during assignments as well as the opportunity to apply for new assignments directly through the platform.
Take a look at Interprefy’s introduction video to find out more about the platform.
I’m a self-confessed digital enthusiast and when Interprefy first launched five years ago I was immediately impressed with it. So much so, I was delighted to meet the founder and CEO of Interprefy Kim Ludvigsen whilst I was working in Zurich to hear first hand from him all about the platform over a delicious dinner!
What sets Interprefy apart from other RSI platforms?
Interprefy defines its USP as “extensive event support and the flexibility and scalability of the platform”, and in this, I would have to agree: Interprefy’s technical support is second to none.
I’ve spoken about my experience with Interprefy in the past and was particularly impressed with their event tech support – and it’s reassuring to know that someone is there to help if the worst should happen and the technology fails on the day!
Final thought: Is Interprefy worth investing in?
For interpreters new to RSI assignments, Interprefy may be a good choice because of its ease of use and the technical support available by its team which is invaluable when setting up for and during assignments, especially when you’re still developing the skills.
That said, even for seasoned pros Interprefy’s in-house training options and bank of online resources and tips are very helpful to further your learning of RSI and develop a competitive edge.
I highly recommend Interprefy as an RSI platform. For further reading on the platform and RSI as a whole, take a look at Interprefy’s Learning Area.
