Technological Innovation and Circular Economy Summit.

Hotel Marriott Auditorium Madrid

We have carried out the simultaneous interpretating of this summit organised by the Advanced Leadership Foundation with the participation of several Nobel Laureates, politicians and former US President Barack Obama. Both the attendees and the speakers were able to follow the interpreting using their own smartphones and the Olyusei App.

This event, attended by 2000 people, has chosen this solution to lower the cost of the service and reduce the logistical problem arising from the distribution and collection of such a large number of receivers. The interpreters worked on site and the translation channels were broadcast using the Olyusei App and a limited number of complimentary receivers available for those who did not have a smartphone.

Major event. 2000 people. 2 languages. Simultaneous interpreting on-site with audio broadcasting using App + receivers.

Boehringer Ingelheim, BI Spain Convention.

Ingelheim, Germany

We had the privilege of providing simultaneous interpretation services for Boehringer Ingelheim laboratories during a 4-day event focused on the Spanish market with presentations by the company’s management and Spanish<>English translation. In addition to the highly scientific and technical presentations, one of the greatest challenges was to translate the master of ceremonies chosen for the occasion into English…. Leo Harlem. A challenge that was brilliantly overcome and that allowed those who did not speak Spanish to laugh with the monologues of this Spanish comedy genius.

In this case, the client opted for a completely remote solution, in which it was not necessary to send a technician to Germany. Rent Multimedia, the company in charge of the technical organization of the event, sent us the audio and video signal while the attendees, 450 people, could follow the translation using their smartphones.

Gestamp

Gestamp, European Works Council.

Hotel Meliá Serrano, Madrid

The biggest challenge when organising an European Works Council is the great variety and number of languages. In this case, 6 languages were required (English, French, Portuguese, German, Polish, Spanish and German), which would have meant having to install 5 booths in the hotel where the meeting was held. The small number of attendees (20) makes it difficult to find a suitable room to accommodate delegates and booths. This is the 3rd European Works Council we have had the honour to interpret for Gestamp.

Olyusei has allowed the company to reduce the cost of such meetings while maintaining the highest quality of service. The interpreters worked from Olyusei’s headquarters and we sent a technician to the hotel to manage the technical aspects. The translation channels were broadcast using wireless receivers

Meeting. 20 people. 6 languages. Remote simultaneous interpreting with audio broadcasting using receivers.

César Manrique

César Manrique Foundation: Arte Sella. The city of ideas.

Taro de Tahíche, Lanzarote

The first event that we held through our exclusive distributor for the Canary Islands, Atrium, in which the client opted for a totally remote solution. The presentation of the documentary and the subsequent talk with the Italian artist Emanuele Montibeller took place in Spanish and Italian with the help of our interpreters working from Olyusei’s headquarters in Madrid. Attendees were able to follow the translation on their smartphones and interact with the speaker in the debate following the screening of the documentary.

Atrium Canarias was in charge of sending the original audio and video signal to our headquarters in Madrid. The reception was carried out using smartphones with the Olyusei App

Presentation. 50 people. 2 languages. Remote simultaneous interpreting with audio broadcasting using App.

Melilla Cruise Forum

Melilla Cruise Forum.

Hotel Tryp Melilla Puerto, Melilla

The organization of this forum faced the problem that it was impossible to find an audiovisual company able to provide technical service in Melilla at a reasonable price. On the other hand, the transportation, accommodation and per diem of the interpreters would increase the budget until making simultaneous interpreting impossible in an event of great impact for the city of Melilla, which seeks precisely to promote its presence in the international markets. Therefore, they relied on us to provide the highest quality service at a much lower price. They also opted for broadcasting the translation channels using our Olyusei App with excellent results, as can be seen in this round table with two languages. The client has already booked us for similar forums in other cities.

A technician from Olyusei travelled to Melilla to coordinate the service and to send the original audio/video signal to Olyusei in Madrid. The translation was received on the smartphones of the attendees with the Olyusei App.

Conferences. 100 people. 2 languages. Remote simultaneous interpreting with audio broadcasting using App.

UEM WW WEB

White Week at the Escuela Universitaria Real Madrid – UEM.

Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, Madrid

For the sixth year running, we were in charge of the simultaneous interpreting for the week of conferences organised by the Universidad Europea de Madrid for its students studying sports management, which is always attended by great sports personalities, such as Ruth Beitia, Pablo Laso, Roberto Carlos and Sergio Llull.

On this occasion, we chose to set up our interpreters and all the necessary equipment in a room attached to the event hall, to use as a “virtual booth”. A mix between a remote system and the traditional set-up, this allowed the interpreters to be on-site, without the need to set up a proper interpreting booth.

Conferences. 120 people. 2 languages. Simultaneous interpreting with a virtual booth.

ISFOC

XIV International Conference on Photovoltaic Concentrators

La Central, Puertollano, Spain

In mid-April, 120 experts from all around the world gathered in Castilla la Mancha to discuss vitally important issues, such as energy efficiency and renewable energy sources. To guarantee direct and fluid communication among its participants, and to translate the welcome messages of the local authorities, they used our Olyusei system.
All simultaneous interpreting was performed remotely, with the interpreters translating from the booths at our headquarters in Madrid, where, thanks to our system, they received the video and audio of the live event. There was no need to set up a translation booth or arrange travel for our interpreters, meaning we could offer the highest quality service at the best price.

The organisers offered three means of distributing the simultaneous translation, which they designated according to the type of guest. The receivers were reserved for senior managers, the press and other guests used the Olyusei app, and, last but not least, people following the event via streaming could listen to the simultaneous translation through our website.

As the space already had an integrated interpreting booth, we provided the interpreting service in situ, which we distributed using traditional receivers and via our Olyusei app, where we created a private access and video link section for the event, which could also be used by anyone who followed the event via streaming.

In this edition they once again opted for our remote simultaneous interpretation service.

This way, it was not necessary to install interpreting booths or bring the interpreters to the event site. The translation was broadcast using traditional receivers and a section on our website, which was customised for World Football Summit and integrated into the official app of the event.

The CEU San Pablo University has a large number of new international students coming every year from different countries around the world. A welcome event is organised to introduce them to the university world in Spanish, English, French and Chinese.

With a traditional system, they would have needed 3 interpreting booths, but with Olyusei we were able to offer all the languages using the booths we have at our headquarters, so there was no need to install them in the event site. The students could choose to listen to the translation using traditional receivers or the Olyusei app, an option that was chosen by the vast majority.

On this occasion, Tim Cook was responsible for giving voice to the launch of a new generation of smart mobiles, watches and televisions and Olyusei was chosen for broadcasting the translation in Spain.

Using Apple’s streaming platform, our interpreters followed the presentation as if they were at the event in Cupertino, and the simultaneous translation was broadcast via the Olyusei app. The presentation was simultaneously screened in Murcia, Salamanca, León, Oviedo and Vigo, where they connected the Olyusei app to their respective public address systems, perfectly synchronizing the live image of the Apple event with the audio of the Spanish interpretation.

And to ensure that all attendees could understand his intervention, they were provided with our Olyusei remote simultaneous interpretation system.
