Singapore, February 7, 2023 – Green Terp Technologies Pte Ltd (“Green Terp”), a SaaS provider in the space of multi-lingual meeting and event technologies, announces today that it launches its mobile phone version for GT Booth, virtual booth for simultaneous interpreting.
This new solution provides providing maximum mobility and flexibility for interpreters to work in various settings, especially convenient for pop-up events, onsite visits and factory/campus tours, without being tethered to a physical location or a computer.
With its unique simplicity and immediate access, Green Terp’s mobile phone solution can be the perfect solution for ad-hoc meetings, particularly in unexpected circumstances such as a power outage or when traditional simultaneous interpretation equipment is unavailable. Its pay-per-use model eliminates the need for a costly backup tour guide system, making it a practical and cost-effective option in emergency situations. It allows for real-time communication, rather than switching to consecutive interpretation (chuchotage/whisper interpreting) and can be easily accessible through a smartphone.
It is now accessible by interpreters via https://interpreter.gtmeeting.com (user log-in required).

“By providing immediate and easy access to interpretation services, the mobile version of Green Terp’s virtual booth is more than just a cost-saving solution. It of course eliminates many of the expenses associated with traditional interpretation services, including the costs of equipment and hardware setup” said Dr. Bernard Song, the founder and CEO of Green Terp, who is a veteran conference interpreter and computer scientist.
“More importantly, it makes the planning and execution of multi-lingual events much easier. There is no need to worry about setting up equipment, managing on-site or online speakers, or coordinating IT logistics. All you need is a stable internet connection and a mobile phone, making it a simple and convenient solution for events of all settings with a predictable and manageable budget.”
Green Terp’s virtual booth solution, which integrates both the Mobile GT Booth and GT Booth (computer-based), offers double the reliability of traditional on-site hardware equipment,” He adds.
Power outages at hotels occur more often in certain countries or regions than others. When that happens, traditional interpreting equipment may not be able to operate, but having a backup tour guide system would incur unjustifiable costs. Our Mobile GT Booth provides a cost-effective solution, as it ensures uninterrupted interpreting service as long as telecommunications towers remain operational, without incurring additional costs.
We are committed to delivering double assurance without added expenses to our customers.
