Breaking Down Language Barriers
The Joint International Union of Phlebology (UIP) and American Vein & Lymphatic Society (AVLS) World
Congress is set to break new ground by introducing an innovative AI translation tool from Barcelona-based company Wordly. This exciting development aligns with the UIP’s commitment to promoting inclusivity and accessibility at its events.
With Wordly’s AI translation tool, for the first time, the UIP World Congress will be translated into 25 different languages in real time, making it accessible to attendees worldwide. Wordly also offers a live written transcription of the session in English and all 25 languages improving accessibility for those who are deaf or hard of hearing. Previous UIP meetings relied on human translation to present meeting content in an audio format only and only in English and Spanish. The UIP World Congress is a major event in the venous and lymphatic medicine field, attracting leading experts and researchers from all over the world.
As AI translation tools are increasingly common at international conferences and events, introducing this technology at the upcoming World Congress marks an important step in approaching language translation. It demonstrates AI's potential to revolutionize how we communicate and collaborate on a global scale.
Wordly was founded in 2017 in Barcelona, Spain. CEO Juan Leiva leads it and has received backing from investors such as Caixa Capital Risc and K Fund. Wordly’s technology runs on a combination of neural machine translation, voice recognition, and natural language processing, allowing for real-time, seamless and accurate translations. The company has quickly gained recognition for its innovative approach to language translation, and its AI translation tool has been used at various international events and conferences.
By leveraging cutting-edge technology from Wordly, the UIP, and the AVLS are helping to build a more connected and collaborative world.
