The interview between the researcher Dr Hodcroft and Daniel Binswanger from the magazine “Republik” was simultaneously translated into two languages and streamed on YouTube.
The aim of “VOIX CIVIQUE” is to educate people in Switzerland about the consequences of “Long Covid”. With this aim, they invited the English-speaking researcher Dr Hodcroft for an interview with Daniel Binswanger from the magazine “Republik”. In order to reach an audience as large as possible, the interview was simultaneously translated into two languages and live streamed.
The organisers have already carried out live streams themselves but failed due to the hurdle of simultaneous translation.
EVERYWOW set up a distributed and virtual live streaming production. This enabled the interview to be streamed in two languages simultaneously on YouTube by involving trained simultaneous translators.
The streaming service allowed Dr Hodcroft and Daniel Binswanger to focus on the interview, the simultaneous translators to translate, and the organisers to monitor the chat. The additional simultaneous translation increased the reach of the stream by over 200%. In total, the interview was watched over 4,000 times.
Livestreaming added value for inclusion
To realise these live streams we have supported with:
- Consulting on the strategy of live streams
- Pre-production of the live stream
- Virtual multistream live productions
