It goes without saying that technology is more advanced than ever. Businesses can now expand their markets globally without having to leave their home offices. There is a caveat, however- language barriers. Enter one of TIME Magazine’s top inventions of 2021– KUDO, a SaaS platform bringing live interpretation to the virtual space in over 200 spoken and sign languages via a network of 12,000+ on-demand professional interpreters. And now, KUDO is bringing this network directly to Microsoft Teams. Listed below are 5 benefits of hosting multilingual meetings and events on Microsoft Teams with KUDO.

1. Be understood

With KUDO for Microsoft Teams, the risk of being misunderstood is non-existent. KUDO pairs the best interpreters to your Microsoft Teams meeting or event based on language, subject matter expertise, and availability, giving your team and your clients the power of being understood with the support of interpreters working in real-time to convey your ideas, opinions, and concepts the way you intended.

2. Improve engagement

Multilingual access opens the door to engagement. With KUDO for Microsoft Teams, incredible input and ideas can be shared without language barriers as an obstacle to overcome. Give everyone the opportunity to participate in meetings and events in their own language without any details being lost in translation.

3. Increase accessibility and inclusivity

An accessible and inclusive meeting is one that allows participation from everyone. Participants should be able to participate via voice, text and visually. Multilingual meetings with KUDO and Teams allow everyone to participate in their preferred language, spoken or sign.

4. Increase your global reach and team

Multilingual access not only increases your access to global opportunities, but it also increases your access to global talent. And once you build that global team with KUDO and Teams, you’re able to strengthen your global team’s connection by collaborating, building rapport, and most importantly, staying up to date with your company’s latest statistics in real-time.

5. All of the above, without switching platforms

Microsoft Teams clients can now access 32 languages per event via KUDO’s dropdown language selector, seamlessly embedded directly into the Microsoft Teams interface.

With KUDO for Microsoft Teams, the limits of your business are non-existent. Meetings and events on Teams instantly become more inclusive, accessible, and engaging for your team and your potential clients.
