Interactio is a global event-technology company that offers real-time language translation on attendees’ phones. It accommodates overflow audiences, poster sessions, silent conferences, and more. Interactio reduces the costs for simultaneous translation equipment by allowing attendees to listen in their own language through their own phones. The interpreters only need an Internet connection and a computer to broadcast onsite or remotely. Interactio also offers audio recordings of events, onsite support, live data, communication materials, and multiple streaming options customizable to each event.
An international conference for Mary Kay, Inc. attracted 14,000 delegates from around the globe for seven days. 200 attendees required interpretation services on a daily basis. Mary Kay sought a cost-efficient way to interpret their annual Grand Seminar into multiple foreign languages. The firm expressed a desire to provide real-time interpretation without having to distribute additional hardware. Interactio’s mobile audio-streaming app offered unlimited simultaneous streams to unlimited listeners and leveraged Mary Kay’s interpreters to deliver translations to attendees via their Internet-enabled Smartphones.
