Smarter Interpreting

Hybrid interpretation system:
how to bring machines and humans together
in real-time translation

Our Vision

At KUNVENO we develop people-centric language technology solutions because we firmly believe that cutting-edge technologies should have a positive impact both on people, by improving working conditions while seamlessly managing common resources within teams, on society, contributing to achieve a good balance between personal and professional life, and on the environment, pursuing a substantial reduction of our carbon footprint.

That is why we design solutions for the multilingual meetings industry putting people at the centre of our holistic thinking and decision making process, and the satisfaction of our clients at the core of our strategic vision.

Our Project

SmarTerp pushes the frontier of simultaneous interpreting by effectively integrating machine assistance within the human interpreting workflow, as a LaaS (Language-as-a-Service) solution that offers AI-powered tools in a one-stop shop providing language technology for multilingual meetings, improving their quality by helping interpreters cope with the multitask activity of simultaneous interpretation and tailoring the service to the terminological needs of our customers, consolidating it into an easy-to-use service, evolving it and keeping it an open solution to integrate machine intelligence like Deep Learning.

For the developing of SmarTerp we count on our trusted technological providers:

ETSIT

Licode (Open Source WebRTC-based MCU) to complete the architecture of our RSI system with advanced functionalities and the integration of the AI tools into the system.


OEG

Knowledge-graph based Natural Language Processing architecture for the recognition of named entities, time expressions and relationships between terms from texts in different natural languages, to work in real-time conditions.


FBK

ASR of audio streams based on Open Source Kaldi’s code and advanced end-to-end SLT approach.

Our Brand

KUNVENO has devised a Remote Simultaneous Interpreting (RSI) system based on Open Source components and designed putting the interpreter needs at the centre of the development to ensure a good user experience for remote simultaneous interpreters, technically allowing the possibility of remote interpreting through a dedicated system that takes into account the needs and requirements of professional simultaneous interpreting.

The KUNVENO ISR solution has an interpreter interface that mimics the interpreter console or workstation containing controls for listening and speaking in the form of a soft-console which runs on any ordinary IT device and has onscreen controls. This soft-console can run on computers, tablets or smartphones, same as the interface used by the audience of a conference or meeting to listen to the interpreted speech.

In the near future, our RSI solution is going to be extended into a system accessible for all users (including visually-impaired users and deaf users) and interpreters (including sign language interpreters and visually-impaired oral interpreters) and integrated into the new AI-powered solution SmarTerp.
