Excelling at what we do

Virtual events

Remote Interpreting

Not every conference is a face-to-face meeting. Many AGMs, supervisory board meetings and other events are held in a hybrid or fully online format. To make your multilingual online meeting a success, we offer remote simultaneous interpreting, or RSI. Our interpreters work remotely, facilitating smooth and easy communication across languages. Avail yourself of simultaneous interpretation, just as you would at a physical conference. Let’s get in touch so we can discuss your project.


Don’t want to leave anything to chance? Create video messages and presentations for your online meeting in advance, and make them accessible to an international audience by adding subtitles. For a smooth and enjoyable video experience, timing is essential. We use time codes to ensure perfect timing, so viewers can follow the flow of your message in their own language easily. We provide your keynotes, welcome statements, specialist lectures and presentations with subtitles in English or German.
