    When Peter Sand mentioned Cymo Booth recently as a solution to having a private video/audio/chat channel with your remote boothmate while interpreting on Zoom, my spontaneous reaction was “Oh no, not another video channel on my already over-crowded screen …” But luckily, Angelika Eberhardt talked me into trying it nonetheless. Or rather, she simply sent […]

The good news is: If you want to watch all the panels and loads of useful video contributions around how technology can support you in the booth, setting up your […]

  • The Unfinished Handbook for Remote Simultaneous Interpreters

    The Unfinished Handbook for Remote Simultaneous Interpreters

    Together with Angelika Eberhardt and Peter Sand, I have compiled tips and tricks around remote simultaneous interpreting (be it from a hub or from home) that we have been collecting ourselves or that colleagues have shared with us. It is meant as an informal collection of personal experiences that work for some while others may […]

    Will 3D audio make remote simultaneous interpreting a pleasure?

  • You can never have too many screens, can you?

    You can never have too many screens, can you?

    I don’t know about you, but I sometimes struggle, when using my laptop in the booth, to squeeze the agenda, list of participants,  glossary, dictionary, web browser and meeting documents/presentations onto one screen. Not to mention email, messenger or shared notepad when working in separate booths in times of COVID-19 … Or even the soft […]

    Simultaneous interpreting in the time of coronavirus – Boothmates behind glass walls

    Yesterday was one of the rare occasions where conference interpreters were still brought to the client’s premises for a multilingual meeting. Participants from abroad were connected via a web meeting platform, while the few people who were on-site anyway were sitting at tables 2 meters apart from each other.
