Videoremote interpreting solutions
In the age of mobile telecommunications, people don’t use simple phones as often as they used to. They communicate somewhere on their way home, to work, to a meeting, in a café or subway. Today we live in a wild tempo and always rush somewhere. Moreover, as soon as smartphones appeared, which make no sense without an internet connection, most products and services found their way to the Internet—using a smartphone, we can study offers and order any service we like. Telephone conversations due to high roaming fees have been replaced with internet connection. It is on this stage—or even earlier—that a need for telephone interpreting from foreign languages appeared. Live communication without limits—this is the goal of video interpreting. And the means of implementation can vary even today. This is what Alex is going to talk about today in his presentation.
