Make Events More Inclusive and Engaging with Conference Translation

Conferences provide an efficient way to communicate a wide range of content, including product announcements, educational seminars, inspirational keynotes, networking sessions, product demos, and much more. Many conferences offer both an in-person and virtual attendance option. In order to make conference management easier, event management platforms have been developed and offer a wide range of solutions, including  ticket sales, attendee registration, gamification, networking, and other key components required for a successful event.

The one thing event management platforms do not solve is multilingual collaboration. Wordly solves this problem with AI-powered conference translation - providing a revolutionary solution that increases inclusivity and engagement by providing an affordable, on-demand, easy to use solution.

Now you can offer live conference translation for all of your events. Wordly works alongside all major event management platforms, including Cvent, MeetingPlay, vFairs, 6Connex, Notified, and  others.

Translation vs Interpretation

A common misconception in the world of language services is to refer to everything as translation. This can create some issues when it comes to understanding peoples’ roles and capabilities, especially when both translators and interpreters may be required for an event for different reasons.

The main distinction between translators and interpreters is in how they deal with language. Translators work with the written word, ultimately producing a text in the required language. An interpreter deals with communications that usually happen live, in-person.

Attendee Engagement - Live translation adds another layer of excitement to a conference which delights and captivates online participants as it continuously renders transcripts before their eyes.

Automated Glossaries - Wordly enables you to create a custom glossary to help ensure important names and terms are translated correctly at your conference.

How Wordly Solves Conference Translation Challenges

  • Wordly solved the conference translation problem by developing the industry's first 100% AI-powered simultaneous interpretation 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. Traditional conference interpretation 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 at the same time, taking turns. The interpreter listens to the speaker and communicates the meaning of the words in the required language. This is known as the target language. Throughout the conference, the audience wears headsets. These headsets allow audience members to listen to the speech in their own language, as a result of the conference translator’s actions – the interpreters in the booth. While effective it is also very expensive and logistically complicated to plan and execute.

How Wordly Conference Translation Works

Conference Interpretation
  1. The conference host sets up a Wordly account - and purchases a package of translation hours - hours can be shared across your company and are usable for up to one year. A single real-time platform that addresses both conference formats; virtual and in-person.
  2. The conference host sets up a translation session in the portal and sends attendees the link to the Wordly session. There is no need for special hardware or sound booths to manage Wordly AI-powered translation.
  3. The Wordly session can run alongside the conference in a separate window or within the conference platform depending on their Wordly integration. Wordly complements all major meetings and events platforms.
  4. Conference presenters join the session and select the language they want to speak in from a drop down menu. All languages are interpreted in real-time and always available on demand at your fingertips.
  5. Conference attendees join the session and select the language they want to participate in - they can listen to the live audio translation or read live translated captions - every attendee can select their preferred language from over 20 options. Participants can access real-time translation and interpretation on their own personal devices in their preferred language.
