Last week, our latest system technology, Linguali Event, was used for the first time and at three different events. Building on the 12-month experience since the implementation of the Linguali Interpreting System, this new system has been designed and developed to offer an unbeatable audio quality, a reliability suited to the demands of the biggest events, just one console for two interpreters, new configurations and always just as simple to use.
Nordic Business Forum, Helsinki, 40 Wi-Fi sources for 7,500 participants
For the second consecutive year (see last year), Hans-Peter Siefen, Nordic Business Forum CEO, asked Linguali to set up our simultaneous interpretation system for the participants of this exclusive conference. Two booths – English-Finnish and English-Russian – each contained two AIIC interpreters from the agency Delingua. The network infrastructure was of the highest quality, with no less than 40 Wi-Fi access points to meet the specifications of Linguali. This première of Linguali at such a large event provided the opportunity for a few last-minute adjustments which were made by both the event tech team as well as that of Linguali’s on location. With minimal assistance for a few participants install the app, the event was ready to begin, headlined by its star speakers: Nick Vujicic, Sir Richard Branson, Will Smith…
Thank you to Hans-Peter for his trust, thank you to the Delingua interpreters; thank you to Jean-Baptiste Dussaut d’Arpinum, developer of the new generation, Linguali Event, for his real-time assistance on site.
Tech Invest, Monaco, first edition
We met Digital Business News’ Laurent Zagaroli at our workshop-demo in Paris. For the first edition of Tech Invest Monaco co-organised with Inbound Capital on the 5th and 6th of October, he wanted to bring simultaneous interpretation to his participants by using Linguali. Meetings, start-up pitches, pre-IPOs and their ratings, keynotes and networking were all on the program of these encounters, concluded by a prize-giving (See the 3 winners of the #TechInvest2017 awards). For this service managed single-handedly by Linguali, with Linguali Event now set up for the most demanding of conferences, the technical resources were provided by the Valbonne, an agency of our partner, Léni.
Thank you to Laurent for his trust and thank you to Mr Cyril Belange for sharing the interpreting with James Anderson.
Bordeaux Fintech, second year of partnership
Yet another partnership between Linguali and Bordeaux Fintech for the third edition of the conference, organised by Louis-Alexandre de Froissard, of Montaigne Conseil and Guillaume-Olivier Doré. Bordeaux Fintech brings banking and Fintech practitioners and innovators from all over France to Bordeaux (thanks to the TGV which makes Bordeaux only 2 hours and 40 minutes away from Paris). Other than offering its 250 French-speaking participants and English-speaking presenters a perfect experience, the organiser wanted to offer a bilingual simultaneous interpretation. Just as for the previous edition, he asked the Hancock-Hutton agency to provide the interpreter.
This year, to launch the new generation, Linguali Event, the Wi-Fi specifications were implemented by Orange Event Solution, the division of Orange Business Services which is dedicated to all mobile phone needs for events, internet access and Wi-Fi distribution across the site. Thanks to the final adjustments made at the Nordic Business Forum, the deployment and technical putting into practice ran perfectly. The experience also reminded us – beyond all technical concerns, which must be taken seriously in relation to the demands of an event – of the preliminary information needed for the participants: install the mobile app before the event, don’t forget your earphones, write down the Wi-Fi code… all essential to a perfect interpreting experience.
Linguali also supplied the interpretation at Bordeaux Fintech in 2016.
Thank you to Louis-Alexandre for his continued trust, thank you to AMP audio-visual agency for collaborating with us, thank you to David and Jérémy from Orange Event, for cooperating so perfectly, and thank you to Charles Couillard, from Arpinum, developer of the new generation, Linguali Event, for his support since its launch.
Linguali was named Best Events Innovation by the VIPARIS clients at Viva Technologies last June.
