Babelverse is the first solution for universal speech translation, powered by a global community of human interpreters.
It enables people to benefit from on-the-spot interpretation, in any of the world’s spoken languages. Multilingual speakers and professional interpreters can earn money for interpreting remotely. Babelverse is available to events and conferences, for both attendees and remote viewers, making any live-streamed video available in multiple languages, for people who would be unable to attend, let alone understand.
In January 2012, Babelverse offered live interpreting of President Obama’s State of the Union address. In September 2012, Babelverse powered the live interpretation of TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2012.
Babelverse plans to be open to the public in any situation where they may need it to communicate, like when travelling abroad, business meetings, phone calls, etc. Their vision is a universe where everyone communicates seamlessly, while speaking their native language. We aim to do to language barriers what the aeroplane did to geographical barriers.
