KUDO Launches New Reseller Partner Program at GALA amid Rapid Company Expansion

Press Release: KUDO Launches New Reseller Partner Program at GALA amid Rapid Company Expansion

(Sunday, April 21 2024, New York City, NY) – Attendees of the GALA 2024 conference in Valencia on 21-23 April will be among the first to learn about KUDO’s new partner reseller program, aimed at expanding language accessibility to Language Service Companies via a customizable multilingual solution for in-person events. The launch comes after a record Q1 for revenue growth as the KUDO team ramps up hiring in key areas such as Sales and Product.

The return to physical conferences and events has boomed over the past year, with in-person attendance 23% higher in 2023 than even pre-pandemic levels, according to CVENT. With this, the conferencing and localization industry has seen a growing demand for technology to allow participants to follow the content in the language of their choice, on-site.  

Among the extensive product development carried out by KUDO in this time was the launch of an improved, user-friendly solution that makes live speech translation available to attendees simply by scanning a QR code from their smartphone. Translated speech and captions are powered by either KUDO AI, a real-time Speech Translator, or a marketplace of 12,000 professional interpreters. The simplicity of set-up and access for the solution are behind its rising adoption rate at events with international speakers and/or attendees; most recently, Economist Impact Asia in Hong Kong and Stage of Tomorrow in Poland. 

Now, with KUDO’s new partner program, resellers can take advantage of this trend by offering KUDO’s in-person solution to their clients’ one-to-many events, conferences, and meetings. 

“This is a fantastic opportunity for LSPs to enhance their existing product offering, differentiate themselves, and diversify their client base,” said KUDO’s CEO, Fardad Zabetian. “We know that the demand for in-person speech translation – whether for colleagues, partners, prospects, clients, or citizens – is only growing. That’s why we have dedicated so much R&D in the last six months to improve the UX and UI of our click-to-join solution. The KUDO team is going through a ‘growth spurt’ at the moment, and we’re always on the lookout for talented newcomers to join us in our mission to spread language accessibility from the online world to the physical one.’ 

GALA attendees can find out more about the reseller program by visiting the KUDO booth. For more information on KUDO AI specifically – including a live demo – they can also attend a presentation on Wednesday 23 April at 11:15am by KUDO’s CTO, Claudio Fantinuoli, and Analytical Linguist, Isabel Olmos, on ‘Integration Generative AI in Speech Translation; Quality Review Process.’
