ZURICH, SWITZERLAND, JANUARY 12, 2020 - Interprefy AG, the leading provider of real-time interpreting technology solutions and services, today announced the availability of its new Interprefy Select desktop app, allowing meeting and event organizers to add real-time interpreting to any meeting and event held on Zoom, GoToWebinar, Webex and any other web conferencing, virtual events or live streaming platform.
In addition to Interprefy's industry-leading stand-alone remote simultaneous interpretation (RSI) platform, Interprefy Select now offers the flexibility of adding real-time interpreting from professional conference interpreters to any meeting and event, on any web conferencing, virtual events or live streaming platform (e.g. Zoom, Webex, GoToWebinar etc.). To provide event participants with a truly multilingual event experience on their laptop or desktop computer.
Participants simply select their preferred audio language in the app alongside their event. As soon as the interpreter is speaking, the app will instantly auto-mute the original speaker to stream crystal-clear live interpreting with low-to-no latency, while the event is ongoing. When the interpreter stops, the audio will immediately switch back to the original event audio.
The new normal of connecting remotely offers an unprecedented opportunity for event organizers to attract a wider and more diverse audience. And for meeting organizers to democratize access to the conversation, by offering a truly multilingual experience, where everybody listens and speaks in a language they’re proficient in
says Annett Polaszewski-Plath, Chief Executive Officer at Interprefy.
Providing real-time interpreting in a more scalable, flexible and affordable manner has become a crucial part of the new event landscape. Making this technology accessible to event organizers and attendees worldwide on the platforms they know and love was a logical next step in the evolution of RSI
