Deploy simultaneous interpreting on smartphones

Linguali 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 laptop, and the free mobile application for participants and speakers is available for IOS and Android. Put an end to delivering and managing headsets and make it simple!

Event organisers

Innovative and cost efficient alternatives to traditional technologies and hardware not only save money, but enhance participation and engagement, resulting in better events and happier clients.

Interpreting Agencies

Dramatically reducing hardware costs provides the opportunity to reduce prices and increase the demand for simultaneous interpreting.

Conference facilities

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 2 up to 60 people (participants and speakers) with just a small Wi-Fi router and your PC. It’s better than bidules and affordable for all of us.

simultaneous interpreting on smartphones

Linguali-IS (Interpreting System) replaces traditional simultaneous interpretation equipment. It allows interpreters, speakers and participants to speak and listen with their connected mobile device.

Does Linguali-IS replace interpreters?
No! Linguali is for interpreters.
Does Linguali-IS work with a sound desk?
Yes! You can integrate Linguali-IS with a sound control desk in input and output.
Does Linguali-IS support relay?
Yes! Simply plug your headset into a connected device to hear your source language and your microphone into your computer for your target language.
What do I need to use Linguai-IS?

Linguali-IS requires:



  • 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?

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. Basically, it is identical to using consoles in this respect.




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?

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.
