The legacy trusted corporate conferencing platform Webex finally unveils its interpreting addon. Starting from December 2020, Webex Legislate, a seperate Coscio product for parliaments, legislatures, courts and international organizations, began offering simultaneous interpreting capabilities.
We met with Cisco product managers online and reviewed some of the available use cases. The current product is a very nice, secure package. It is highly customizable. Interpretation is performed in virtual booths (rooms). Sign language interpreting can also be provided. Interpreters video will be neatly overlayed on the main screen.
And as always, contact our team if you need to setup, host, manage Webex Legislate events with language interpretation.
Update: Towards the end of 2021, regular Webex added simultaneous interpretation feature. We also analyzed it and tested with a group of conference interpreters (in English, French, Russian, Arabic, Turkish, Spanish, Chinese and Portoguese). Webex has more interpreter-friendly features as compared to Zoom.
