Live captions for meetings and events

Add live captions and subtitles to your meeting – whatever the language or meeting platform.

The boom in virtual meetings in recent years is well-documented, but what if your attendees speak different languages? One method of ensuring these meetings succeed in an international setting is to provide translated live captions and subtitles for participants who speak other languages. Thanks to intelligent transcription and translation technology, it is possible to hold an online meeting or presentation with live, translated captions,​ meaning events are now accessible to all participants in their own language, improving buy-in and communication.

Our solution offers live captioning of events or meetings, allowing you to choose between automated subtitles based on intelligent speech-to-text technology or live captions provided by human captioners. Furthermore, instant machine translation ensures that the subtitles are immediately translated and displayed in the requested languages, allowing participants to easily follow the meeting in their native language. Whatever platform you are using for your online event, we can ensure that all participants have instant access to the content in a whole range of different languages.

Why The Translation People

We have been supporting our customers with their multilingual communication for over 40 years. Using cutting-edge technology to make our language services as efficient as possible, we help reduce costs for our customers, with live captions being just one example.


Digital meetings are now the norm and meeting technology is constantly evolving and improving the experience of organisers and participants. Our live captioning solution integrates with all leading meeting platforms enabling live captions to be provided in real-time by professional human subtitlers or by automated speech-to-text technology.

If the translation of live captions is also requested, we can add machine translation of the subtitles into up to 100 languages. Depending on the platform, the subtitles are either integrated directly into the meeting or displayed in a separate browser window.

Professional subtitles and technicians

Live captioning requires maximum concentration and speed. Our captioners are trained and have extensive experience with live captions. They prepare for the meeting with reference material and ask for the spellings of proper names that appear during the meeting. Our technicians check the connection between the captioners and the meeting in advance and stay online during the event to ensure that everything runs smoothly.

Experienced account managers

Our account managers will be happy to advise you on the best options for your meeting or event. For many years we have been supporting event organisers with language services such as interpreting or subtitling – whether in person or online.

Comprehensive services from a single source

Technology like live captioning with automated translation is a relatively new trend. But we also offer traditional language services for meetings. These include simultaneous interpreting and remote interpreting, foreign language transcription, voiceover & subtitling and recordings. If you need your video translated, please contact us.
