How to organise your online meeting with the help of an interpreter

In the new professional world, as a consequence of Covid-19, meetings are now frequently held via telephone and video conferences due to the limitations of travel and teleworking. Our work habits must therefore get used to this small revolution.

More often than not, the participants of a meeting do not speak the same language. In addition; expressing yourself in a foreign language using these new work tools is not always as easy as doing it "face to face".

They offer many features such as screen sharing and collaborative editing of documents. These platforms facilitate teleworking, remote meetings, and international business relations without the need to travel.
