Users that would like to include interpreters in their meetings or webinars now have the ability to enable language interpretation. This allows the host to designate participants as interpreters on the web portal or during a Zoom session.
When the meeting or webinar starts, the host can start the interpretation feature, which will allow the interpreters to provide their own audio channels for the language they are translating to. Attendees can select an audio channel to hear their language of choice. Attendees will hear the translated audio and can choose if they want to hear the original audio at a lower volume.
The languages currently supported are: English, Chinese, Japanese, German, French, Russian, Portuguese, Spanish, Korean
You will need to enable it first under your account setting first. Add other languages if you need to.
The next time you schedule a meeting, select Enable Interpretation and invite interpreters.
Add interpreter, if there are more.
- Cloud recordings of interpretation sessions will only record the original audio of the meeting or webinar, not the translations.
- Local recordings of interpretation sessions will record any audio that the person recording can hear, but not multiple audio channels.
- Language interpretation cannot be used with Personal Meeting ID (PMI). Only choose the option Generate Automatically for Meeting ID.
