Interprefy’s platform helps inspire 6,000 students at Your Challenge

Over four days in February 2018 Your Challenge, an educational fair in the Swiss town of Martigny took place. The event provides young students with a chance to explore potential career paths and find inspiration through practical demonstrations throughout the exhibition halls.

To ensure maximum engagement, Interprefy’s platform was used to provide audio streaming for group tours. With numerous tours of up to 30 students running simultaneously, students could download the Interprefy app onto their phones and listen directly to the tour guide.

The Interprefy platform was highly reliable, even when scaled up to cater for numerous tours throughout the 42 exhibition halls. Over the four-day event, more than 6,000 students downloaded the Interprefy app to listed in to their tour guide at Your Challenge.



Kim Ludvigsen

With an engineering and business degree, I have worked in the financial industry and with start-ups for over 25 years. However, I have always had a keen interest in languages. My mother tongue Danish is only spoken by 5 million people, so when I after high school moved to Switzerland, I had to expand my language command. I discovered that with a positive attitude and a bit of effort, I could learn a new language in two months and today I speak seven actively.

While working for Swiss Post 2004-2010, I sometimes used interpreting and I was very surprised how old-fashioned the underlying technology was. A few years later I met with my old colleague Peter Frei, and together we picked up the idea of developing a remote interpreting platform, using browser-based software and mobile apps. A team of competent language and software specialist was quickly assembled, and by the end of 2014, a prototype developed and Interprefy incorporated.

I quickly discovered that the technology we started developing turned out to be quite controversial, or to use a modern Venture Capital expression "disruptive", meaning that is has the potential to radically transform an entire industry.
