In 2014, I started VoiceBoxer after seeing a need for a midrange option for events requiring remote simultaneous interpretation. I worked in the language services industry and noticed that essentially the only companies or conferences offering a multilingual experience were those with large enough budgets to accommodate flying in interpreters and paying for days of their time.

For smaller NGOs and other organizations, a big expenditure like this simply wasn’t feasible. Virtual access to interpretation was beginning to transform into something more user-friendly, so I thought that remote options could significantly increase the size of the market for multilingual meetings and events. Hence, VoiceBoxer (now Boostlingo Events) was born.

Working with Language Service Companies to Help Them Book More Remote Simultaneous Interpreting

From the beginning, we’ve worked with language service companies as partners. Whether we’re helping providers book events to host on our platform or staffing events with our partners’ resources, Boostlingo Events is committed to being an enabler in the language service space.

Today with Boostlingo Events, your interpreters can directly connect to virtual meetings in Zoom, Webex, GoToMeeting, and more to provide SI services. Another great use case is hosting international multilingual video conferences and meetings with interpreters via the VoiceBoxer platform which also includes features like multilingual chat, polls, and Q&A.

Here are a few reasons to add a remote simultaneous interpreting platform to the interpretation services you offer:

1. Join a Growing Market

Remote simultaneous interpreting is a growing market in a world where virtual events are increasing. According to Grand View Research, the global virtual events market has a predicted annual growth rate of 21.4% from 2022 to 2030.

Even as events are returning onsite, hybrid options are becoming the norm. With a simultaneous interpreting platform, you can staff your interpreters from anywhere on the globe. Our flexible options allow interpreters to stream from anywhere their interpreted audio for a completely onsite event.

2. Build Business with Event Planners

Event planners are continuing to provide hybrid and virtual options for attendees around the world. In fact, according to Skift Meetings, 71% of event producers plan to continue implementing a digital strategy to maintain their virtual audience after the return to physical events. This is a great opportunity to partner with new clients who may be seeking event interpretation services.

Being the go-to multilingual provider for an event company is essential to long-term bookings in the space. With a virtual platform, you’ll be able to offer flexible solutions regardless of the type of meeting or conference an event planner is looking to staff.

3. Work with Global Companies

With a remote simultaneous interpreting platform, your business will have the opportunity to provide international organizations with interpreting services. Many global organizations are committed to accessibility and inclusion, and therefore require a truly multilingual experience for their conferences, meetings, webinars, and more.

Additionally, the push toward green solutions are a huge initiative among corporate responsibility departments around the world. Switching to local clusters, regional clusters, or fully remote events can save 60 to 98% on emissions — a great selling point for hybrid and virtual events for large corporations.

The Bottom Line For Your Growing LSC with Remote Simultaneous Interpreting

Succeeding in the interpreting space is all about diversifying the types of clients you can book. RSI is another tool in the toolkit for you to book conferences and events, and to partner and hire the professional conference interpreters who expect high quality experiences when they work with you.
