Remote interpreting - Marta Seresi, ELTE, Budapest

Abstract

Remote interpreting is part and parcel of today’s interpreting market. It presents a number of advantages for the clients, but it also entails challenges from the interpreters’ point of view. Several empirical studies have started analyzing the pros and cons of remote interpreting taking into account the subjective and objective difficulties perceived by the two groups. Research seems to indicate that interpreters can adapt their coping strategies when working in a remote context if they are given the possibility to familiarize themselves with this interpreting mode or an appropriate training period.
