Since its founding in 1949, the International University Sports Federation has been the key driver in expanding the role and reach of university sport worldwide. The FISU Executive Committee meets at least twice a year to take any decisions necessary for the proper functioning of FISU.
FISU has in the past used interpreting onsite at its venue for its events. The team at FISU felt it was spending too much time in sourcing interpreters and dealing with logistics for each of its events. Furthermore, the prospect of saving floorspace by removing the need to have an interpreting booth was appealing.
Interprefy was able to remove the administrative burden place on FISU's team immediately by sourcing conference-level interpreters to work on its upcoming event. Because FISU was keen to maintain consistency, it was keen to work with the same interpreters on an ongoing basis.
Interprefy provided technical support prior to the event which helped relieve the workload placed on FISU's in-house team.
There were some unexpected changes to the event which were implemented in the very final stages. This had an impact on the interpreting requirements. Interprefy was able to overcome these challenges by introducing a relay interpreting feed on its platform. The event went very well and FISU expects to use Interprefy's platform for future events.
