Make Church Services More Inclusive
Most religious organizations have members whose native language is different from the language spoken at their weekly services. Some parishes have tried providing human interpreters to address this issue, but that solution is too expensive and complicated for most organizations to implement.
Wordly solved this problem with our AI real-time translation solution. Now you can address the multilingual challenge for church services or any other events where attendees speak multiple native languages.
Expand Your Reach - Many congregations have a global audience. Wordly enables churches to expand their community by allowing both speakers and attendees to participate in their preferred language. This makes attending your services more accessible for everyone.
How Wordly Solves Church Translation Challenges
- Traditional church translation solutions require a multi-step process: The on-stage speaker gives a speech or presentation in their own language. This is known as the source language. Two interpreters work in a booth, taking turns. The interpreter listens to the speaker and communicates the meaning of the words in the required language. The use of human interpreters, sound booths, and listening devices make the solution hard to implement.
- Wordly developed the industry's first 100% AI-powered translation platform - providing a fast, easy, and affordable solution for today's global, multilingual, virtual world. Wordly is powered by AI and does not require human interpreters or special equipment.
