simultaneous interpreters for live TV news broadcast

How iProbe helped with simultaneous interpreters for live TV news broadcast.

live broadcast of interpretation from Farsi

When MSNBC needed a Farsi interpreter on April 1, 2015 to simultaneously translate live on air, they turned again to iProbe.

MSNBC's booking producer placed its first call to iProbe at 8:38 AM. Within the hour, iProbe lined up an available interpreter and the booking was concluded just after 10AM.

At noon, our interpreter was onsite at NBC News Department dedicated to MSNBC broadcasts ready to initiate his shift to interpret for the Iranian Foreign Minister in the event a news conference would be held regarding the negotiations to reach a preliminary agreement with Iran on its nuclear program.

Due to the parties' failure to reach an agreement, no news conference or a joint appearance took place on that day, however, Iran's Foreign Minister made some comments, portions of which, were in Farsi, for Iranian reporters, and which got interpreted into English.

Our interpreter met with the booking producer first who asked a colleague to show me the equipment and teach him how to operate such equipment.

He was released at 5:30PM and we were asked for him to return at 1 a.m. at.

Our interpreter showed the other interpreter how to operate the equipment in the event there was a need.

Around 3 a.m. today, there were two live news feeds by the Iranian Foreign Minister. The first one was in English. The second one, coming from an Iranian station was in Farsi which got interpreted.

The interpreter was released as there would be no joint news conference appearance that day unless there was an agreement.

live broadcast of interpretation from Italian

MSNBC needed an Italian interpreter for simultaneous live broadcast interpreting from Italian into English on February 2nd, 2005 from midnight to 8:00 AM and another from 2:15 AM-10:15 AM. iProbe supplied two interpreters.

On February 28, 2014 the Pope would be departing the Vatican and saying a few words before he goes, MSNBC needed a simultaneous Italian interpreter to interpret from Italian into English the Pope's words and booked the interpreter via iProbe.
