An explanation of the chat options on Interprefy's platform to help you interpret with confidence.
There are 3 types of chats available to the interpreter:
- Interpreting partner chat
- Event chat
- Remote support help chat
The chat windows will display notifications of unread messages. They will go away when you hover over them with your mouse:
Interpreting partner chat
For direct messages between interpreters in the same language. Visible by the technical support team and the interpreters on that language chat.
Each outgoing language has its own chat. Changing your outgoing language will change chat channels.
1. Current language chat - indicates the language chat you are in.
2. Partner's information - indicates how many partners there are in your language chat and their names.
3. Microphone state - indicates if your partner(s) is muted or transmitting.
4. Pre-defined chat messages -sent automatically when selected. It saves you time, especially when you are interpreting and need to do communicate with your partner(s). You can also create your own pre-defined messages:
This is a public chat which means it is available for all to see, including speakers, participants, remote support, and interpreters.
Depending on the event type, the meeting organizers can use this chat to make some general announcements or ask questions to participants.
Remote Support may also use this chat if the message is directed for all interpreters.
