Remote Video Zoom Interpretation FAQs

zoom interpretation services FAQsHow Does Zoom Language Interpretation Work for Hosts?

When you schedule a Zoom meeting, you may already have knowledge that its participants speak different languages. Alternatively, once you begin your remote or Zoom meeting, you may discover that there is a language barrier. Telelanguage can help you navigate both situations with ease.

Simply connect to a Telelanguage zoom interpreter and seamlessly add them to your Zoom meeting to receive interpreting services within seconds. The certified interpreter joins in your Zoom meeting and can provide both simultaneous interpreting and closed captioning. The best part is that you don’t need any additional hardware—our interpretation services can be applied to any active Zoom meeting.

How Does Zoom Simultaneous Interpretation Work for Participants?

The meeting host must first enable the option for simultaneous interpretation. They’ll have to add a Telelanguage interpreter as the official interpreter in the Zoom meeting itself. While the presenter is speaking, the Telelanguage interpreter will then provide simultaneous interpretation so all participants can understand. Participants can choose to mute the channel with the original language or listen to both. Simultaneous interpretation works well when the original language is left at roughly 20% volume while interpretation is at about 80% volume.

What Is Simultaneous Interpreting?

Simultaneous interpretation occurs when the interpreter translates speech to a target language in real time. Unlike consecutive interpreting, simultaneous interpreting happens while the speaker is currently speaking. The major benefits of simultaneous interpretation are that the original speaker isn’t interrupted while speaking—and because of this, simultaneous interpretation takes half as much time as consecutive interpretation.

Rather than waiting for the speaker to pause to interpret what they’ve said, simultaneous interpreting provides a more natural flow of speech. As a result, understanding the interpretation is easier for the listeners. Interpretation participants don’t need to wait in to understand the words being relayed and can gather meaning in real time.

Does Zoom Allow for Closed Captioning?

Zoom allows for closed captioning services in tandem with Telelanguage. The Telelanguage interpreter can be integrated into the meeting, and they can provide closed captioning services in real time. As with simultaneous interpretation, the meeting host will have to enable the feature and then integrate the Telelanguage interpreter before the interpreter can provide a written interpretation of the spoken language.

  6. With face-to-face contact, more accurate interpretations and better connections are formed, allowing you to build a better relationship with your meeting participants.

Can I Use Telelanguage Video Remote Interpreting at Any Time?
