2M Language Services Stand: 327

Simultaneous interpreting, or real-time interpreting, has become an essential part of conducting multilingual meetings in today's global business world. In the mining industry and METS sector, where companies operate across multiple continents and languages, simultaneous interpreting has become even more crucial. The 2M Multilingual Meeting Platform is a platform designed to provide efficient multilingual meetings, workshops, training, events, and conferences for the mining and METS industry. In this blog post, we discuss how simultaneous interpreting via the 2M Multilingual Meeting Platform promotes inclusive meetings and events.

Simultaneous interpreting is the process of interpreting the spoken word from one language to another in real-time. It is different from consecutive interpreting, where the interpreter listens to the speaker's words and then interprets them into the target language. Simultaneous interpreting allows for more efficient communication between speakers of different languages, as it enables them to communicate simultaneously, without interrupting the flow of the conversation.

The 2M Multilingual Meeting Platform allows mining and METS companies to conduct global multilingual meetings and events. The platform offers simultaneous interpreting in over 250+ languages, making it possible for participants to communicate with each other in real-time, no matter what language they speak. The platform works by inviting a human interpreter into the virtual room to facilitate the conversation between participants. Each participant has the option to choose the language they wish to listen to, either the speaker's language or the interpreted language. The platform also provides features like virtual breakout rooms and real-time document sharing, making it easy to collaborate across language barriers.

One of the main advantages of the 2M Multilingual Meeting Platform is its ability to promote inclusive meetings and events. With the platform, all participants can communicate in their native language, which ensures that everyone can fully participate in the discussion. This creates a more inclusive environment, where everyone feels valued and heard, regardless of their language or cultural background. In addition, the platform can help companies reach a wider audience, by making it possible to conduct events and training sessions in multiple languages.

The 2M Multilingual Meeting Platform is optimised for remote settings, making it perfect for the mining and METS industry, where companies operate in different parts of the world. The platform's remote capabilities mean that participants can attend meetings and events from anywhere in the world, as long as they have an internet connection. This makes it possible for companies to conduct multilingual meetings and events without the need for travel, which can be costly and time-consuming. 

BHP is a long-standing user of the 2M Multilingual Platform. 2M supports BHP in conducting multilingual meetings and presentations in Spanish and English. For example, one case study featuring a presentation by CEO Mike Henry was broadcasted through two interpreters on the 2M Multilingual Meeting Platform, enabling all viewers to listen to the presentation in their selected language. 

In conclusion, simultaneous interpreting is a critical tool for promoting effective communication in the mining and METS industry. The 2M Multilingual Meeting Platform is an innovative solution that enables companies to conduct multilingual meetings and events seamlessly, promoting inclusive communication across language barriers. With the platform's remote capabilities, companies can reach a wider audience, making it an ideal solution for conducting efficient and cost-effective multilingual meetings and events.
