How does Interprefy for Microsoft Teams work?

Interprefy has partnered with Microsoft to make your Microsoft Teams meetings truly multilingual through simultaneous interpretation.

First announced at Microsoft Ignite 2020, Interprefy for Microsoft Teams is a simultaneous interpretation add-on for MS Teams meetings that allows your event participants to join the conversation in their preferred language.

How it works

  • Interprefy brings professional conference interpreters to your meeting, rendering the speech in real-time into the required languages.
  • Interprefy can help source interpreters for your required language combinations and subject expertise, or alternatively, train your own interpretation teams on platform usage.

Benefits

  • Offer meeting participants the opportunity to listen and speak in a language they're proficient in.
  • Access to unmatched language talent through Interprefy's partnerships with leading language service providers.
  • Interprefy provides project and technical support before and during your event.
  • Seamless user experience for participants through a simple and powerful language selector in Teams.
