‘Remote is here to stay! Hybrid is the new normal’
Simultaneous interpreters help each other in the booth: when it is not your turn, you listen to the source speech, take notes and look up terminology. That is how we were all taught, right? But suppose that the person who is not interpreting needs a rest? You are entirely at the mercy of the speaker. Or are you?

My presentation is about three experiments we have carried out with the software prototype (InterpretBank).
