Information for interpreters
It is time to revolutionise the working conditions for interpreters. Qonda creates new technological possibilities: Virtual interpreting livestreams, web conferences, on-site events and hybrid events.
For more independence in your job.
Qonda brings professional online interpreting to the internet, creating space for even more people to understand and meet each other. And interpreters experience a new independence in their job because they can work flexibly from anywhere in the world.
Qonda is a browser-based platform where simultaneous and consecutive interpretation services can be booked and handled online.
From anywhere in the world:
Via Qonda, online interpreters always work location-independently, i.e. they dial into online conferences or meetings from any location and interpret from there.
Perfect working conditions:
Qonda has been developed in cooperation with interpreters. Interpreting via Qonda works almost exactly like interpreting in the booth on site.

Listening to the interpreter partner

Notes on remote interpreting.
We recommend that you consider the following points when interpreting remotely:
Please be sure to use a wired network connection. A Wi-Fi network is not as stable and has a so-called higher latency. This means that it causes a longer reaction time, which can lead to hearing and speech interruptions.
Your internet connection should have a performance and speed of at least 10MBit/s (for fast upload and download).
Computer / laptop:
The computer or laptop you use for working with Qonda should ideally be state-of-the-art and, if possible, not older than three years. This minimises the risk of your most important work device breaking down or working unreliably during an appointment.
We also recommend using a headset from a brand manufacturer such as Sennheiser, Shure, Beyerdynamic or Jabra. These manufacturers guarantee the best sound quality. Although it is a higher initial investment, it pays off many times over in the long run.
Ideally, you should have a second screen. Then you can follow the conference on one screen and do the interpretation and research work on the other.
Work in a quiet environment where you won’t be disturbed by doorbells or phone ringing.
