ZURICH, SWITZERLAND: SEPTEMBER 22ND 2021 – Interprefy AG, the leading provider of managed interpreting technology and services, today announced a new partnership with London based Grip, a leading AI-powered matchmaking and networking solution for events. This partnership will allow Grip to run webinars and virtual events in multiple languages without the administrative overhead.
Interprefy revolutionises simultaneous interpreting by replacing proprietary hardware with a cloud-based solution so that interpreters can deliver their services remotely. Online or onsite event participants can simply listen to the language of their choice through their smartphones, laptops or desktops. As interpreters work remotely, the best conference-level interpreters can be selected in any area of specialisation even at short notice, independently of their location.
Events with simultaneous interpreting can be run on Interprefy’s platform or any other web meeting platform the client wishes to use. Interprefy’s Select Solution was built specifically to integrate seamlessly with other online event platforms like Grip. It features an array of tools to optimise the user experience and there is no limit to the number of languages that can be provided. Through the Interprefy-Grip integration, this service is now available to Grip customers.
“The Interprefy-Grip partnership is a powerful combination. With the world turning to hybrid events, in the post COVID-19 world, a large number of events are retaining some part of the virtual experience, for the longer term,” said Richard Roocroft, Director of Global Sales at Interprefy.
“Interprefy makes Grip events multilingual, so that attendees can listen to presenters in a language of their choice, helping to increase engagement and inclusivity for all. We are delighted to partner with Grip, a global leader in hybrid events for networking and lead management”, Roocroft continues.
“Having struggled with dyslexia for most of my life and finding it difficult to learn new languages, I am very excited to announce the availability of Interprefy for all customers on the Grip Market Engagement Platform. Real-time interpretation will make events more inclusive and increase the potential audience and global reach for organisers.” — Tim Groot, Founder & CEO, Grip
“We help event organisers across the world, with their virtual, hybrid and live events, and having remote live interpretation will allow organisers and associations to provide truly engaging and international content to their attendees. Breaking down barriers and bringing people together is in Grip’s DNA and our mission to move markets forward by bringing audiences together to discover, engage and connect works best when there’s no barriers”, Groot continues.
