How does Interprefy work with GoToWebinar and GoToMeeting?

Interprefy has partnered with LogMeIn to offer real-time interpreting for virtual events held on the GoToWebinar or GoToMeeting platform.

    Summary

    Inteprefy's desktop app works alongside the GoTo video conferencing platform and delivers remote real-time interpreting from professional conference Interpreters. By removing the need for on-site equipment and eliminating interpreters' travel costs, Interprefy supports global enterprises with secure, accurate language translation from anywhere and makes meetings truly multilingual. 

    How the solution works

    We're bringing the live stream of your event on GoTo into our Remote Simultaneous Interpreting (RSI) platform, while the speech is ongoing. Interpreters working through Interprefy's interpreter soft console are watching and listening to the speaker, while simultaneously interpreting the speech and streaming their real-time interpretation to the Interprefy app.  

    How it works for event organizers and administrators

    Request your interpreting services with Interprefy and create your event on the GoTo platform. Interprefy will source the best interpreters for the required language combinations and topic expertise.

    Once Interprefy has scheduled your event, you can simply share your Interprefy event access token and Windows and iOS app download link with your event attendees. Your event on GoTo will then display an audio option to connect to Interprefy's app and it will be ready to receive real-time interpreting to your audience in the language of their choice. Interprefy's technical support team will monitor the event and ensure a seamless multi-language experience.

    How your attendees access live audio translation

    Your event participants download the Interprefy desktop app, join the event on the GoToWebinar or GoToMeeting platform, and set their speakers settings to Interprefy Audio Driver.  Participants then need to open the Interprefy app, add the event access token for their event and select the language of their choice from the language selection droplist. 

    An interpreter will relay all spoken content and attendees will be able to listen to crystal-clear, real-time interpreting audio without having to mute the webinar.

    Success Story

    In July 2020, Interprefy helped bring together over 2000 participants for the 99th Convention of the World Boxing Association. Held on the GoToWebinar platform, Interprefy provided, within two months of the event date, remote simultaneous interpreting and project management as well as remote and digital support to make their reunion a fully virtual global event.
