How it works

Webex Events offers multilingual support, enabling event organizers to create a more inclusive and accessible event experience for attendees. Event organizers can translate event registration and app content into 35 different languages, ensuring attendees can access information in their preferred language. Attendees can choose their preferred language in the Event App by clicking on their profile image and selecting from the available options. During live streams, the Closed Captions & Translations feature automatically displays closed captions in the language chosen by the attendee. Multilingual support simplifies the process of creating an inclusive event experience by offering translation for event and registration content in multiple languages.

Consider building separate yet identical Event Apps in each required language for your event. For example, you could build one Event App in English and one in French. Keep in mind, if you take this approach, attendees in one Event App can’t engage and network with attendees within another Event App. 

If you’re considering this approach, carefully test your Event App and reach out to your Webex Events contact to strategize the best approach for your event. 

Consider using groups to create an even more immersive experience. Use groups to gather language preferences during Registration and create features, Announcements, and banners in the Event App for each language. Tie content to each respective language group so that attendees only experience that content in their language. 

Keep in mind, depending on how many languages your event needs to accommodate, whether your team has staff that are fluent in these languages, and other factors, implementation may require hiring an outside vendor to translate and/or help your team build out content for each language. 

If you’re considering this approach, carefully test your Event App and reach out to your Webex Events contact to strategize the best approach for your event.
