Wordly is proud to announce that we’ve won the 2023 RemoteTech Breakthrough Award for Virtual Events Innovation of the Year.
As remote work continues at companies of all sizes, leaders are challenged to discover new technology solutions that foster productivity, collaboration, and innovation. The RemoteTech Breakthrough Awards are designed to recognize the world’s best technology companies, products, and services empowering remote work today.
Organizations around the world spend large sums of money planning internal meetings and external events - but their return on investment is significantly reduced when attendees can't effectively communicate with each other due to language barriers. Some turn to human interpreters, but most don't have the time to organize or budget to spend for this option.
So how do you enable a group of people who speak different native languages to easily communicate with each other - without breaking your budget?
Wordly uses AI Translation to deliver high quality, easy to implement, and affordable live translation into the 30 most common international business languages. Live translation makes events more inclusive, engaging, and productive for everyone. This leads to increased attendance at industry events; higher customer satisfaction; and higher employee retention.
WORDLY MAKES IT EASY
Organizers can schedule a translation session in less than 5 minutes.
Presenters join a session by clicking a URL, and can speak in their preferred language.
Attendees join a session with our Translation App by scanning a QR code or visiting a url (provided by the meeting organizer), and selecting their preferred language. They can access translated captions or audio almost instantaneously. Attendees use their phone for in-person events and their computer for virtual events. There is nothing to download and they don't need to create an account.
WORDLY MAKES IT AFFORDABLE
Since Wordly uses AI, there are no human interpreters or special equipment involved. You get access to 30+ languages for about the cost of 1 interpreter. Pricing is based on usage, and discounts are offered for non-profits and education providers - making it work for budgets of all sizes.
WORDLY MAKES IT FLEXIBLE
Wordly is a comprehensive solution providing 4 products (translated audio, captions, subtitles, and transcripts) and supporting 5 event formats (in-person, virtual, webinar, hybrid, and video) through our highly scalable, secure cloud network. You only need to purchase one solution to get access to everything.
