Remote-based interpreting/live streaming – is this the future?

Thanks to our innovative technology, video conferences, webinars, seminars, townhall meetings and much more can be relayed to smartphones, tablets or conference platforms. In contrast to other platforms, we also support simultaneous interpreting. Everything is done in real time and is very simple and intuitive to use. Just download the Syntax app, enter your event code, and you can watch and listen live.

Whether online or offline, the most important thing is to understand one another in various languages and cultures. This requires professional simultaneous interpreting and, increasingly, remote-based simultaneous translation. Remote-based (viewed from a distance) means the person whose speech is being interpreted and those listening to it are connected via the internet. Syntax’s remote-based interpreting solution is suitable for interpreting online and hybrid meetings as well as for on-site events. In other words, for multilingual communication in real-time. The interpreting is done in several languages at the same time so all of the participants can follow the meeting, conference, webinar, etc. and participate in their own language. The interpreting and livestreaming are available barrier-free on any device. The remote solution reduces CO2 emissions by 80 percent and costs by 20 to 30 percent compared to traditional interpreting.

Saturday morning in Olten. The members of the Swiss Handball Association (SHV) will be convening for their annual meeting shortly. There are many French-speaking members on site this year. They are to be involved in the discussion and should be able to contribute without struggling with the language barrier.
In the past, the SHV would first have had to put a great deal of effort into finding an interpreter, who – depending on their place of residence – reserves a day to travel to Olten. Today, the handball association can be supported not only more easily, but also at a lower cost – with the online solution of Syntax Translations Ltd: our certified interpreters can support any event around the globe at any time thanks to our cloud-based platform.

To benefit from this service,

the speaker requires

a laptop with a microphone and camera, so that the interpreter hears and sees what is happening at the event

the attendees require

a smartphone, tablet or laptop per person using the service

our app, which is downloaded to the mobile end device and installed beforehand

a headset

Back in Olten: the assembly has come to an end, there is a sense of departure. The app is closed and the headsets stowed away. “The application is easy to use,” says one attendant subsequently. “With this offering, the handball association is also supporting the further development of handball in French-speaking Switzerland.”

And Yvan Zimmermann, CEO of Syntax Translations Ltd, is also happy with how the event was organised and held. “Our service now also allows event organisers with a smaller budget to offer their foreign-language attendees a good and cost-efficient service.”

Specific quote & further information

The app-based solution is not only suitable for simultaneous interpreting at conventions and congresses, but also for smaller events such as seminars, workshops and panel discussions.

If the necessary conditions are given, there will be nothing standing in the way of a successful event. “What’s important is a stable internet connection,” says Markus Graf, Head of IT at Syntax Translations Ltd. “A public WLAN is only advisable if the connection is really stable.”


Many compliments to Syntax for their reliable, remote-based interpreting service. I am very happy with the quality of interpreting with the Syntax interpreting app. I very much like working with Syntax and hope that we can work again together soon.
