Conference Interpreting for Oracle
Bilingva provided conference interpreting services for a high-level meeting between Oracle senior executive team and a group of German government officials visiting Silicon Valley on a tour of IT companies.
The meetings were a series of highly technical round table discussions with interactive sessions between Oracle executives and the visiting group. For this meeting Bilingva suggested whisper interpreting mode, providing highly technical German conference interpreters, comfortable with IT terminology.
Whisper interpreting is ideal for smaller groups and roundtable discussions where the usual audio setup is not available, and the presentation is conducted without microphones or speakers. Interpreters typically shadow the presenters and switch their positions around the room, depending on the flow of the discussion and location of the speakers. This kind of meeting requires highly professional interpreters with many years of experience, comfortable not only with the terminology and the subject of IT field, but also the setting and the need to quickly switch between the hosts and the presenters.
