What is KUDO?

Live conference interpreters

KUDO is a Language-as-a-Service (LaaS) platform. We offer the latest cloud-based technology —and unparalleled language expertise— so you can meet globally in your own language. KUDO relies on a 40-year combined legacy of conferencing and language services. We know the business inside out and will not push square pegs through round holes.
