Live language translation for Opening Address attendees 

ISE 2020 will once again open new channels of inclusion by engaging the audience in their own language during a major keynote – thanks to technology and translation services provided by KUDO for the Opening Address

Attendees will be able to select the language of their choosing during the ISE 2020 Opening Address by former Disney Head of Innovation and Creativity, Duncan Wardle. This will greatly enhance the connection between Wardle and ISE’s growing international audience.

KUDO will offer access to its services, and Wardle’s talk will be translated in real-time from English into Spanish, French, Portuguese, Chinese and Russian. Listeners, onsite and beyond, will be able to choose their language through KUDO’s intuitive app, downloaded free on their own smartphones. 

And in an unprecedented move in the industry, KUDO will also offer a pop-up window for the deaf community to follow in sign language.

“ISE is now recognised as the largest AV and systems integration show in the world,” said Mike Blackman, Managing Director of Integrated Systems Events. “It is the European destination for an industry that is truly global, and providing language support makes ISE even more so,” he adds.

KUDO, a technology company founded in 2017, is one of the exhibitors in this year’s ISE (stand 3-C120). Fardad Zabetian, KUDO’s CEO, created the company to help make language and conference services affordable and accessible through the cloud. 

“We’re happy to support ISE for the second year in a row and to offer multilingual capabilities to the Opening Address, thereby fostering true understanding and engagement in different languages”, says Zabetian. “We’re very excited to help take Duncan Wardle’s message to speakers of six different languages and even the deaf community through sign language.”
