SHIFT survey on remote interpreting: help us!

The SHIFT project needs your precious help!

One of the project goals is carrying out a market survey on remote interpreting, in order to understand how much, how, when remote interpreting is used and who uses it. The final aggregate results will feed into project outputs and will be presented at our next event in Venice, Italy, in October (more info coming soon). The survey is anonymous and takes about 15 minutes.

There are two surveys, one for interpreters and one for users (and potential users) of remote interpreting.
