Live Event Support Services

On-Site Interpretation

Delivering your message to an in-person, multilingual audience requires the help of an experienced provider. Rely on our experts to select the best-fit interpreter for your event, make travel arrangements, provide technical support, and more.

With linguists trained in both simultaneous and consecutive interpretation, Lionbridge ensures a smooth and successful live event anywhere, in any language, at any scale.

Remote Simultaneous Interpretation

Large virtual events can be difficult to tackle, especially when your audience speaks multiple languages. With our Remote Simultaneous Interpreting services, you can ensure your virtual conferences, eLearning sessions, and other online events are accessible to your whole audience.

Supported by sophisticated technology, this specialized interpretation solution allows listeners to select their preferred language. Lionbridge RSI is available via all leading virtual conference platforms, including Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Interprefy, and more.

Live Captioning

Live captioning provides written text as people speak. While many platforms have built-in captioning technology, large conferences, webinars, and livestreams often require a more sophisticated solution.

Lionbridge's live captioning services offer superior quality captioning to handle multiple speakers, complex or specialized content, and a catalog of over 350 languages.

Collateral Localization

Interpreting is only half the battle – if your event includes digital or print collateral such as videos, slideshow presentations, handouts, or other documents, they'll need localized, too.

In addition to translating text-based documents, we'll translate your audiovisual assets. Rely on our video transcription, subtitling, dubbing, and multimedia localization services to ensure your collateral feels native for all your audiences.
