Vidby Launches Call Translator

Article Featured Image

Swiss startup vidby has launched Vidby Call Translator to let users communicate with foreign language participants through Google Meet. Users can translate video calls in real time and understand colleagues globally in more than 150 languages and dialects.

With Vidby Call Translator, multiple participants can chat online without language hiccups and can download a text file of the meeting transcription in their target languages.

To tap into the solution, users log in and select their native languages in their profile settings. After that, they insert the link to Google Meet meetings and then connect the vidby call translator bot to the call. For the bot, it's necessary to set languages for each call participant and specify target languages for translation. Once the bot says, "I'm ready," users can start the conversation: one person speaking at a time, other participants having their microphones on mute.

Key functionalities of the product include the following:

  • Vidby call translator bot that automatically joins a call upon invitation;
  • The list of scheduled calls automatically fetched from the user's calendar;
  • List of screen names from Google Meet;
  • Recognition of speech and voices and real-time translation;
  • Notifications when the bot can start translating and when the translation is ready;
  • Call transcription text file;
  • Translation to the user's main language, saved in the user's profile; and
  • Search for calls by name among upcoming and past calls.

Vidby currently only supports meetings through Google Meet, but the company expects to launch Zoom and Microsoft Teams integrations soon.
