Last Friday (8 April), the Home of Translation provided interpreters for an unusual event as part of the Semaine digitale #SDBX5 week in Bordeaux, organised by Bordeaux Métropole and the City of Bordeaux.
During the “La Grande Jonction” conference at 11am, the brand new Linguali-IS system was used in the place of traditional translation equipment. It was the first time this new interpreting technology, which allows the audience to listen to simultaneous translation on their smartphones (Android only for now), had been put to the test in public: a real baptism of fire!
The pioneering interpreters for the event were Lesley Graham and James Anderson, who is also the Managing Director of Linguali SAS.
A short online tutorial on how to install the application on your smartphone is available via the following link: http://linguali.com/fr/installation-linguali-beta-android/
