Zoom Host Insights for Interpreters: RSI Success Tips

October 4, 2023 / 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT

Elevate your RSI skills and empower your clients by gaining essential Zoom hosting insights, equipping you to confidently navigate RSI events on the Zoom platform!

Remote simultaneous interpreting (RSI) clients are increasingly asking interpreters during dry runs or even before the actual meetings to advise them on how to enable interpreting channels and assign interpreters to the booths, how relay works, and how to make the best use of other Zoom meeting features such as audio settings and screen sharing.

While it is not the responsibility of the interpreter to act as the host, being able to explain the basics of Zoom interpreting, and mastering the nuts and bolts of Zoom hosting, can give interpreters more confidence when joining events. Having this knowledge will also allow us to add to our client education efforts, providing tools such as checklists for organizers, moderators, and speakers. Clients usually appreciate this valuable advice coming from their trusted interpreting services provider.

This webinar will help you leverage your experience as host and interpreter, respectively. The presenters will share tips and tricks of the Zoom platform so you will understand how the main features work and be able explain them to those involved in organizing RSI events on this platform!

You will:

  1. Receive tips on preparing for virtual RSI events.
  2. Improve your technical skills in Zoom.
  3. Analyze some technical troubleshooting possibilities.
  4. Learn how to help clients understand how the interpreting feature works.
