The Longest Now


Real-time transcription / interpretation

I was thinking today, that real-time audio transcription is the kind of
effort which clearly benefits from simultaneous editing
of a single file… even more strongly and obviously than, say,
developing a whitepaper or encyclopedia article, or working on a puzzle
hunt
.

At the same time, I’ve been looking for translators who can do
real-time interpretation for the Wikimania conference
this summer; it turns out that they tend to interpret in pairs, with
[say] English-German and German-English interpreters sharing a
sound-booth.  What I’d like even more than this, would be a
few
different German-English translators all speaking into the same
sound-stream.  One would do the primary interpretation, and
the
others would be kibbitzing for all to hear :

I want to thank my brothers here ... for 
                      friends or colleagues                            

supporting me through these cruel times and events... vicious                                  no, oppressive times
