Video Remote Interpreting: Challenges and Responsibilities

This event has passed. Webinar Date: 16th September 2020, 6:00pm - 7:30pm


Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) has been around for years however, the current climate caused by the Coronavirus has meant that the T&I industry had to make the shift to VRI in order to keep participants safe but still provide essential language services for service providers and CALD clients. This rapid change resulted in practitioners, language service providers, clients and technology platforms adapting to this mode of delivery almost overnight leading to VRI now being used as the preferred remote interpreting alternative in almost all Community Interpreting settings as it provides visual cues in addition to the audio feed.

 VRI can be a cost effective, quick and easy way of providing interpreting services. However, it can be quite a challenging mode of delivery for practitioners due to technical issues and its complex and cognitively demanding nature. This interactive webinar will explore Video Remote Interpreting through the perspective of all participants and introduce the All Graduates dedicated Video Interpreting division that sets and follows strict protocols to ensure optimum quality of message transfer for clients while establishing the required work place standards for interpreters. The webinar will also look through the AUSIT “Recommended Protocols for VRI in Community Interpreting”, released in July 2020.
