Ethics in Remote Simultaneous Interpreting   

May 10, 2023 / 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

Join this webinar to learn about the emerging ethical dilemmas in RSI, how to avoid the pitfalls involved, and how to capitalize on the new opportunities!

The rise of Remote Simultaneous Interpreting (RSI) and other forms of video remote interpreting has transformed the interpreting landscape, creating new opportunities and ethical dilemmas for practitioners. In fact, various forms of remote interpreting began decades ago, and RSI began just under a decade ago. But the number of people practicing remote interpreting exploded during Covid-2019, when remote work became the savior of our profession.

Those who practiced remote interpreting prior to 2020 developed their own behaviors to suit their market. As of today, there are several new markets and some experienced interpreters have developed their own practices, while newcomers to the field are navigating unfamiliar terrain. On the plus side, RSI provides many more opportunities for interpreters to make a living than ever before. On the negative side, there are also more opportunities to stumble over ethical issues.

This presentation will give examples of some of these often-unforeseen pitfalls and explore the appropriate way to work in this new (for many) environment.

You will learn how to:

  1. Change your mindset
  2. Plan jobs responsibly
  3. Use social media appropriately in the RSI environment
  4. Improve your interactions with clients and colleagues
  5. Support the interpreting profession
