Remote interpretation is the biggest technology breakthrough in multilingual meetings since the Nuremberg trials. Conferences can now be streamed live, in multiple languages, to the palm of one’s hand. Speakers, attendees and interpreters are being ushered out of the room. Is this the end of in-person meetings?

Join us for a discussion of the pros and cons of the new interpretation delivery platforms, and what they mean for language buyers and providers in the short, medium and long term.

About the speaker:

Ewandro Magalhaes is a language industry executive with over 25 years of experience. He is also a senior diplomatic interpreter and former chief interpreter of a United Nations agency, where he helped introduce a groundbreaking system of interactive remote participation in all six languages of the United Nations.

Ewandro is currently the vice president of communications of KUDO, a Manhattan-based startup that is pushing the envelope on new cloud-based solutions for multilingual meetings. He is also a passionate trainer, speaker and career coach who help people change their outlook, find their voice and succeed on their terms. He lives in New York with his wife, three children and Freddie, the family’s Yorkie.
