Linguali revolutionizes simultaneous interpretation by replacing the traditional equipment with software. The innovative system allows participants at international events to listen to the interpreter using their own smartphone running the Linguali mobile application, available for iOS and Android.
Linguali reduces the cost of providing simultaneous interpretation by 90% on average. The system is fast and simple to deploy for interpreters and event organisers. It does not require any internet access on site: the service is provided over a local wifi network, ensuring a seamless experience for interpreters and participants.
James Anderson, President of Linguali says: “We are truly excited to release Linguali-IS. We have already done several events for groups from 10 to 60 people, and the feedback has been exceptional. We believe Linguali can really boost the interpretation market and generate new opportunities for the interpreting community.”
Although Linguali costs only a fraction of renting traditional equipment, the sound quality is equivalent to that of high-end systems that can cost tens of thousands of dollars. “We have spent two years getting it right, as a simultaneous conference interpreter myself there was no question of releasing something that I would not want to use. We have achieved a level of sound quality and ease of use that is unsurpassed”.
In addition to reducing the cost of providing simultaneous interpretation, Linguali also means that organisers and interpreters no longer need to rent and transport equipment, or distribute and collect headsets.
Linguali-IS works as a stand-alone mobile system for freelance interpreters, as well as integrating with sound desks and PA systems for larger events and conferences.
“By leveraging technology and devices, Linguali makes simultaneous interpretation accessible to all”, concludes James Anderson.
Based in Bordeaux, France, Linguali is a European language technology company specialised in simultaneous interpretation technologies.
