Sales Kickoffs, also known as SKO events, are one of the most important meetings a company can have. It typically is one of the rare occasions when personnel across marketing, sales, customer success, and product come together to learn about new products, sales tools, competitors, and market trends. It also provides a great opportunity to build teamwork and collaboration across the company. 

You put a lot of effort into making the event as engaging and collaborative as possible - selecting themes, topics, speakers, food & beverage, and entertainment that will prepare everyone to meet your company objectives. 

If you have a global organization where some team members speak different native languages, you also need to think about addressing the language barrier.

Many companies make the mistake of assuming all of their employees are proficient in the headquarters language and they only need to run the event in a single language. But in reality, many employees find it challenging to listen to long presentations while fully comprehending all of the information.

In some cases, people prefer to have live captions running alongside a presentation - just like they do when streaming their favorite shows. They learn better by listening and reading at the same time.

Make your next SKO more engaging and productive by adding live translation.

Historically the only way to bridge the language gap was to hire professional translators. While this solution helped solve the problem, human interpreters are also very expensive and time consuming to schedule. This meant most companies opted not to do anything.

Wordly solved the problem by developing an AI-powered interpretation platform which provides live translation into audio and captions for both in-person and virtual events.

Wordly specializes in offering unlimited, one to many translation - this means you get access to all 20+ languages for one price - you don’t need to decide which languages you need to offer before the event - attendees decide real time when they join your event. This saves planning time and the cost of hiring 5, 10, 15, or 20+ interpreters depending on the demographics for your organization.

With Wordly you get an all-in-one solution that is ready to go out of the box. The platform consists of four integrated modules which makes it easy for event organizers, speakers, and attendees to use.

  • Real-time translation into 20+ languages - audio and captions
  • Every attendee picks their own language and uses their own device (mobile phone, tablet, or computer) - they do not need to download anything
  • No special equipment or human interpreters are required - this makes it easy to set up and very affordable
  • Seamless integration with all major video conference platforms - including Zoom, Teams, and WebEx
  • Session transcripts - you decide who you want to share these with after the event 
  • Customizable glossary - use to ensure company specific terminology, including product names, people, and industry terminology are communicated correctly
