The Benefits of Video Remote Interpreting (VRI)

The benefits of video remote interpreting

Video Remote Interpreting is the latest trend in the language industry. Using a device connected to the internet such as smartphones, tablets, or computers, VRI allows to access interpreters from all over the globe and have them translated in real-time.

This new technology offers many advantages to the client in terms of quality and cost-efficiency.


VRI has many advantages on multiple levels:

  1. Cost reduction:

Not having an interpreter on-site means to save all the expenses for travel and accommodation and tech support.

  1. No special equipment needed:

Traditional interpreting might require the installation of interpreter booths and infrared headsets with the supervision of a tech team. VRI operates on a platform available on common devices such as PCs, smartphones, and tablets.

  1. Video stream:

Traditional remote interpreting consisted of over-the-phone dialogues. This way, the interpreter misses important visual cues that can indicate more precisely the original message of the speakers (namely facial expressions).

  1. Wide choice of interpreters:

Since interpreters can work with VRI from all over the world, the service quality does not depend on the availability of nearby professionals, but rather on a vast network of linguists, also working with rare languages.

  1. No need to plan in advance:

Thanks to a 24/7 working platform, clients do not need to always book interpreters in advance and can easily tackle urgent language needs.

Situations Where VRI Makes the Difference

Video Remote Interpreting is a great ally of organizations such as hospitals, airports, courts, and hotels, which work with the public and regularly deal with unpredictable situations. The possibility to reach for an interpreter within a few seconds, without needing advance notice, guarantees immediate assistance while needed, even the last minute. For the same reasons, VRI is also a great solution for corporate and business meetings.
