Separator

Cisco launches the preview of its real-time translation feature, while also dramatically expanding the language library from 10+ to more than 100 languages, ranging from Armenian to Zulu. This will equip Webex users with inclusive and seamless collaboration experiences as it breaks the language barriers to a great extent.

According to the company, the users can create their own personalized Webex meeting experience by quickly and easily self-selecting the language of their choice. In addition to the most commonly used languages, such as Arabic, Dutch, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Russian and Spanish, the company also promises translation in localized languages such as Danish, Hindi, Malay, Turkish and Vietnamese. The company expects that the new feature will enable businesses to focus on finding the best talent regardless of wherever they call home or their native language.

Ever since the pandemic started, Webex became an instant hit and a part of office functions across the globe, like many other video conferencing platforms

"The inclusive features of Webex help create a level playing field for users regardless of factors like language or geography. Enabling global Real-Time Translations is another step toward powering an Inclusive Future, and an important component of driving better communication and collaboration across teams." said Jeetu Patel, SVP and GM Security and Applications, Cisco. He adds, “AI technologies play an integral role in delivering the seamless collaboration, smart hybrid work and intelligent customer experiences that Cisco is known to deliver.”

Ever since the pandemic started, Webex became an instant hit and a part of office functions across the globe, like many other video conferencing platforms. It in fact has not only continued to help businesses thrive, but also has been an integral platform for governments to continue to lead remotely, doctors to meet with patients safely, and educators to teach students at a distance.

The company further explained that Cisco has a clear vision of how technology can help customers realize that future today and create a more inclusive world for all, by enabling a Webex experience that is 10x better than in-person while at the same time making in-person interactions 10x better as well.
