Real Time Remote: A Time Efficient Approach

This course focuses on Real-Time Remote (RTR), an alternative approach to deliver remote interpretation services with significantly higher time efficiency. By reducing assignment durations, this simple method lowers the risk of interpreter fatigue, which often increases accuracy.

Additionally, RTR allows interpreters to offer services through different conferencing platforms, increasing their ability to adjust to their clients’ preferences.

Finally, RTR enables interpreters to offer remote services to Limited-English Proficient users who have no computer, who lack access to the internet, and/or who are unable to navigate video conferences.
