How to configure streaming in a multi-language event and how does it work?

Do you have a multi-language event and you want to offer a 100% multi-language streaming? Meetmaps has the multi-language functionality you need.

REMWhen hosting a multilingual event 🌐, it is often common to broadcast the streaming of the day in a single language. However, this approach can make attendees who don't fully understand the language feel excluded, affecting their participation.

The solution? Meetmaps' multi-language streaming feature 🚀, which allows you to add a different streaming link for each language configured in the event. This way, the audiovisual team can broadcast different signals with audio in each language and add them to the platform, enabling attendees to follow the broadcast in their preferred language. 

NOTE 📃: If you're interested in this option but don't have an audiovisual team, Meetmaps can offer you alternatives. Get in touch with us 📧 to learn more.
