The New Way to Provide Live Translation

Interpretation Challenge

Global Interpretation

Most organizations are global with a wide range of multilingual constituents, including employees, customers, partners, vendors, members, and citizens.

This creates a big communication challenge since the language spoken at meetings and events is often not the preferred language for the audience - leading to lower productivity, higher costs, lack of inclusion, and reduced participation.

Legacy Solution

Interpretation Solutions

The multilingual interpretation problem is often solved by using human interpreters, which is a good option for events planned months in advance and supported by large budgets and teams.

But the logistical challenges and cost of human interpreters make this option unattractive for most organizations.

Wordly Solution

AI Interpretation

Wordly solved the problem by developing the industry's first AI-powered remote simultaneous interpretation platform - providing a fast, easy, and affordable solution for today's global, multilingual, virtual world.

The Wordly platform captures the speakers’ audio, processes it via a secure cloud infrastructure, and translates in real-time into 25+ languages.

How Wordly Translation Works

Wordly provides AI-powered interpretation services through a SaaS platform which does not require human interpreters - making it faster, easier, and more affordable to manage multilingual collaboration.

Presenters speak in their preferred language and participants read or listen in their preferred languages; using their computer, tablet, or smartphone; in-person or remote.
