Hybrid events with real-time translation

A hybrid event is always a challenge. It's a live event combining in-person participation with virtual attendance. And everyone should be able to join in, whether they are on-site or not. Add several different languages to the equation and things get, well, let's say interesting. But solutions are available, and so are agencies with the experience to make them work. One of them is our company, Syntax Sprachen in Frankfurt (Germany). Let's talk about what you need and then we'll see what works best for you.

Simultaneous translation at a hybrid meeting  a typical example

An international company based in Frankfurt organizes their Supervisory Board meetings as hybrid events. One part is the physical meeting in a conference room in Frankfurt, the other a video conference for those who can't travel. The two meetings are linked up so that everybody can see and hear everybody else, no matter where they are. This is done using the usual microphones and speakers in the meeting room, plus cameras and several screens. Those who speak in the physical meeting appear on the laptop computers or tablets of all video participants. Those who speak in the video conference appear on the screens set up in the conference room and are conveniently audible through the speakers in the room. During the meeting the discussion runs as smoothly as if everybody was in the same room – a little like a professional talk show.

The languages used are German and English. The client books the simultaneous interpreters of Syntax Sprachen and all the equipment needed, which is set up in the conference room. The interpreters work on-site, where they can best keep tabs on the proceedings and where technical support is available if needed. The on-site meeting delegates use receivers with earphones to listen to the translation. As for the video participants, it's best to use a multi-channel platform where all users can simply choose their language on screen. In this particular case the customer requirement is for a specific platform to be used, which isn't multi-channel, so a workaround solution is created.

  • more people are able to attend (with no additional cost)
  • greater interaction, because there is no language barrier
