When multilingual matters: Global logistics
Inclusivity, accessibility, and increased engagement are valuable reasons to add multilingual access to your next virtual event. But what does this look like in practice? When Multilingual Matters is a series of blogs that describe real-life challenges that can be overcome with live interpretation on platforms like KUDO and its integrations.
The challenge: Global supply chain management
You are the CEO of a modular construction company that manufactures full-scale apartments in factories in China and Japan and ships them to the US for on-site assembly. One of the biggest draws to modular construction is the time savings; however, miscommunications with your manufacturers have led to recent delays. Your connections in Japan and China both speak limited English, and you speak neither Japanese nor Chinese. You’ve gotten this far with Business English; however, you are starting to see its limitations.
The old way
You could invest in hiring an interpreter for each location. This seems like a solid solution until you factor in the irregularity and sometimes spontaneity of your calls to both locations. There is no way to guarantee that the interpreters will be available on-demand as you need them. You also run the risk of hiring an interpreter that isn’t familiar with your industry.
The KUDO way
Enter KUDO, the multilingual SaaS platform that leverages the power of the largest on-demand network of professional interpreters to make any virtual meeting multilingual with just a few clicks. With KUDO, you can find, book, and pay on-demand professional interpreters with specific industry expertise to support your calls to your Japanese and Chinese manufacturers 24/7, eliminating miscommunications and improving efficiencies.
