We look forward to bringing live translation (audio and captions) to your in-person events and virtual meetings. Offering translation is a great way to demonstrate your commitment to accessibility and inclusivity.
Promoting the use of translation before an event can help increase attendance by letting people know it will be language accessible and appealing to a global audience. Providing information at the event helps ensure users can easily access the translation.
This guide provides tips and tools for activities you can do both before and during your event to promote offering translation.
Let potential attendees and confirmed registrants know you will be offering live translation for no additional charge at the event. In addition to providing attendees with language options, offering captions is an effective alternative to ASL (American Sign Language) which is important for many attendees. Tip - Attendees will not need to download anything or create an account to use Wordly. All they need is access to their phone or computer (and a standard headset with microphone if they want to use audio at in-person events).
Wordly works for both in-person and virtual meetings - so make sure you let attendees know if you are offering translation for all formats.
You can promote the availability of translation on your website, event registration pages, emails, social posts, and apps.
Here is a sample of text and an icon you can use with your promotion.
Remind attendees that you are providing live translation and captions at the event. The most important information to share with attendees is the QR Code and URL which attendees will use to access translation at each session.
