Covid-19 marked a shift towards remote and hybrid settings. During the pandemic, virtual hearings were often the only viable option. In the post-pandemic world, while in-person meetings have resumed, virtual and hybrid hearings remain not just a valuable alternative, but in certain contexts have become the new norm.
When a case involves international parties, the assistance of specialized court interpreters is often called for.
In the past, these services were provided on-site, by installing an interpreting booth or using what’s known as a ‘tour guide set’ or ‘whispering set’. But in a virtual or hybrid setting, thanks to the significant advancements in the field of interpreting technology, interpretation can seamlessly be performed remotely or in hybrid settings.
