Linguali-IS revolutionises the way interpreters, speakers and event participants interact together
The Linguali Interpreting System replaces traditional conference interpreting equipment and allows interpreters, speakers and participants to speak and be heard using only their connected mobile device. The Linguali-IS interpreter application runs on Windows 10. Speaker and participant apps run on smartphones and tablets running iOS and Android.

How does it work?
A few minutes before the event the interpreter must connect his laptop computer to the provided Wifi network, then, start his Linguali-IS software. He gets to the Event Settings single page.
On the Event Settings page, the interpreter declares the languages pair he will work in, and...
... the Event name. Then he starts the Event.
At this point, the Event is discoverable by the users mobile applications.
The Interpreter Console provides the basic interpreting features: switch between languages, set the hearing volume and switch the microphone off.
The user experience
The participant must select the same Wifi network as the interpreter.
He launches the Linguali free app on his smartphone or tablet.
As soon as the interpreter have started the Event from his console, the mobile app can discover the event.
The user simply selects his language, puts his earphones on and listen to the interpreter.
The event current speaker presses the microphone icon to have it enable and get heard by the interpreter.
Note that is also convenient for informal bilingual meetings where any participant can talk.
The feature allows any event attendee to ask a question, and be translated too, during Q&A sessions.

See the Linguali store for essential accessories.
How many participants can use Linguali?
This depends mainly on the capacity and reach of the wireless network. With a single mid range wireless access point (available on the linguali store) you can have up to 20 connected participants, if you double the access points you double the number of participants. For large events we suggest you talk to a local wireless installer for a custom set up. Some sites and meeting rooms install dedicated wifi networks for Linguali.
Is Linguali-IS for remote interpreting?
No! Linguali-IS is used by the interpreter at the event. Linguali-IS replaces traditional interpreting equipment, this means you no longer need to rent consoles, headsets etc...
Does any wireless network work with Linguali-IS?
Most systems work, but we generally suggest you avoid any wireless networks that require captive portal access that are used by the general public. You can buy a portable wireless access point from Linguali that will serve up to 20 participants. For larger groups we recommend a dedicated multi-point wireless network.
Can Linguali-IS be used to record interpreters?
Not directly from the PC application, but it is possible to record to a connected device.
Do participants pay to use the Linguali app for their mobile device?
No. The mobile app is free for participants and speakers, the license holder of linguali-IS is charged 2€ per day per participant and speaker that is connected. There is a minimum monthly charge of €20 if there are no connections made.
How powerful does my computer need to be?
Linguali-IS is designed to run on a mid-range laptop PC:
- Intel® Core i7 2,6 GHz
- RAM 8 Go 1600 MHz
- HDD 1 To 7200
- Wifi 802.11ac or 802.11n
- OS Windows 8.1 64 bits
Does Linguali-IS need a sound desk?
No! Linguali-IS is an autonomous system that only requires a wireless network.
How many language pairs does Linguali-IS support?
Linguali-IS supports one language pair per computer, so if you have French <> English say, then you need one computer running Linguali-IS. If you need a second language pair (Spanish<>English) then you need a second computer running Linguali also. It is basically identical to using consoles in this respect.
What is the sound quality of Linguali-IS?
Linguali-IS respects ISO 20109 interpreting standard requirements (where applicable).
How do I pay and when?
Linguali charges your credit card or paypal automatically at the end of each month. You receive an automatic email with the invoice and all a detailed report of connection usage with dates. You can also generate reports for dates in your online Linguali user account and generate pro-forma reports so that you can invoice your customer for the number of users during an event.
What about mobile phone batteries running out?
Most modern smartphones can last for a full day running Linguali, but of course not all phones. We therefore recommend that you inform event participants before they arrive that they need to remember to bring chargers with them, and if they have them, powerpacks to recharge their phones and tablets during the day. Linguali provides good value powerpacks in the store that you can provide as event gifts for your participants.
