Geneva, Switzerland – KUDO Inc., the leading Language-as-a-Service platform for online meetings, is expanding to Europe where it now operates under Swiss law as KUDO Sarl, out of Geneva. The company now provides its technology and services through servers in Frankfurt, Milan, London, Paris, Stockholm, and Ireland.
European clients can now host their meetings in their preferred servers, based on their specific data and privacy policies, with the support of a fully European-based infrastructure and a dedicated technical support team available locally.
Worldwide, KUDO relies on a global cloud Infrastructure, a secure, extensive, and reliable network of cloud servers offering over 175 fully-featured services from a vast array of data centers. KUDO’s new topography ensures the deployment of applications using specific servers that are closest to and favored by new clients and end-users in Europe, with single-digit millisecond latency performance.
”Our European expansion, which started in 2019, is now in full swing, powered by a full-time local team and a growing network of select partners”, says Fardad Zabetian, KUDO’s CEO and co-founder. Roughly half of our clients are European institutions, which made the decision quite obvious for us,” he adds.
KUDO has seen a tremendous growth in usage as more enterprises are pushing their meetings online in an attempt to adapt to the constraints introduced by COVID-19. A large part of those meetings requires multilingual support, which led the company to establish a new Meeting Services division to assist with the onboarding and training of new partners and users, helping them through mock and actual meetings and empowering their teams to full autonomy.
”We went beyond the technology and greatly expanded our roster of professional conference interpreters,” says Ewandro Magalhaes, KUDO’s VP of Communications and co-founder.” As of today, 5,000 trained freelance linguists stand ready to service meetings in as many as 60 languages and from all corners of the world, with an average of 100 new professionals joining the ranks every day,” adds the former chief interpreter in the United Nations system.
KUDO is a cloud-based collaboration platform that enables web meetings and live conferences with real-time multilateral language interpretation. KUDO supports more effective and inclusive meetings by allowing people and businesses to overcome communication barriers and speak their own language. Accessible from anywhere, on any device, KUDO redefines possibilities in global communication. KUDO, Inc. is a New-York based technology startup founded and managed by language and conferencing industry insiders looking to bring people together. More info at www.kudoway.com
