Interprefy across the world

It has been a busy start to 2018 at Interprefy. We’re working hard on several tech updates. We received an additional round of funding. Our platform has been used by customers across the globe, from a retail event in London, to a business summit atop the Jakobshorn mountain above Davos, at the World Economic Forum.

This year SlatorCon implemented an interpreting solution, using Interprefy’s platform for simultaneous interpreting between English and Japanese. Andrey Schukin Interprefy’s CTO, takes part in a panel at SlatorCon in Tokyo, to discuss key issues facing the translation industry. 

Since the beginning of the year, our technology has been used in a variety of ways for different event formats. For example, our platform helped inspire 6,000 students at educational fair, Your Challenge. Another event at which we took part in and provided interpreting for was FRESH, an event for meeting professionals to experience the latest in meeting design, network with experts. We partnered with Abbit to provide the Interprefy platform in order to connected professionals across multiple sites. You can read more about the event here.

 

 

 

 

 

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.
