Many clients use web conferencing platforms (Webex, MS Teams, GoToMeeting, BlueJeans) for their remote meetings which makes the interpreter's task rather difficult as these platforms were not designed with interpreting in mind.

The side-by-side set-up allows the participants to meet on a platform they are already familiar with while the interpreters can work on a platform that is built for them. They can enjoy the functionalities they need to do their job.

In this training, we will explore two platforms that can work side-by-side with web conferencing platforms: SpeakUs from Russia and the upgraded version of IBridgePeople from France. You can join either or both days. The schedule everyday is as follows (UK Time GMT+1):

10:00 - 10:30 Introductions

10:30 - 11:00 Explanation of the platform

11:00 - 12:00 Test driving the platform

12:00 - 12:30 Feedback and wrap up
