Deploy Simultaneous Interpreting Without Equipment
The Linguali Interpreting System replaces the need for interpreting equipment at conferences, meetings, workshops and round-table discussions. It allows speakers and participants to communicate with the on-site interpreter on their smartphones over the venue’s Wi-Fi. The interpreter application runs on a Windows laptop or tablet, and the free mobile application for participants and speakers is available on IOS and Android.
Put an end to delivering and managing headsets as well as the need for technical expertise, whilst freeing up your budget!
People can listen and speak with Linguali-IS (more coming!)

Dramatically reducing hardware costs provides the opportunity to reduce prices and increase the demand for simultaneous interpreting.
Maximise use of smaller rooms and configurations with the ability to deploy multiple simultaneous interpreting services anywhere, anytime, and at a fraction of the cost of traditional systems.
Cover events for up to 20 people (participants and speakers) with just a small WIFI router and your PC. It’s better than bidules and affordable for all of us.
Linguali-IS makes simultaneous interpreting accessible
Participants listen to the interpreter and interact from their own mobile device.
High Quality Sound
Interpreters and participants benefit from enhanced sound quality over most traditional portable systems.
Simple and smart
It only takes a couple of minutes to set up Linguali-IS, and deploy simultaneous interpreting from your laptop.
How does it work?
A few minutes before the event, the interpreter connects their laptop computer to the wireless network, and launches Linguali-IS. The event set-up page is then displayed.
On the event settings page, the interpreter choses the languages they wish to work in and the event name. The event is then live.
Once live, the event can be found by the users’ mobile application.
The Interpreter Console provides the basic interpreting features: allowing interpreters to switch between languages, set the volume and switch the microphone off.
The participant joins the same Wifi network as the interpreter and launches the free Linguali mobile app on their mobile device, and is automatically connected to the interpreting session.
The user then simply selects their language.

What do I need to use Linguai-IS?
- A wireless network (see above)
- A high quality headset and microphone with:
– TRRS jack connectors (these are the same as found for smart-phone headsets that include microphone and headphones using the same jack plug)
– USB headset with built-in microphone
– External condenser microphone (USB) with output for headsets.
See the accessories page for more information.
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 60 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 60 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 with the following minimum configuration:
– Intel® Core i5 2,2 GHz
– RAM 8 Go 1600 MHz
– Wi-Fi 802.11 AC 5Ghz
– OS Windows 7 or later
Does Linguali-IS need a sound desk?
How many language pairs does Linguali-IS support?
What is the sound quality of Linguali-IS?
Linguali-IS provides rich, fullband high quality sound for both interpreters and participants. Our frequency range is from 8kHz – 20kHz, this exceeds ISO interpretation standards.
How do I pay and when?
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.
