Speechly App today announces support for Ukrainian refugees arriving in countries around the world.
As of 12th April, free 120-day licenses will be made available to any public and non-profit organisation supporting refugees who require Ukraine and or Russian translation services. This will include unlimited licenses, so over 100 nationalities can converse in real-time with Ukrainian and Russian speakers.
Speechly App licenses are available free of charge for 120 days, to help organisations establish communication and welfare channels.
Simone Bini, Head of Channel at Speechly, said: “Our hearts go out to the people of Ukraine at this traumatic time. As a translation technology provider, the best way we can support them and the support agencies and organisations around the world who are welcoming them into their countries, is to ensure refugees do not have to worry about communicating and to receive the best help and support possible.”
Free Speechly App licenses are already being provided across many local authority locations in the UK, who are preparing to welcome refugees by installing the Speechly App within their established network of Jabra devices, used for telephone, online and onsite conference communication.
James Haworth CEO at FITTS said, “Having developed and tested the Speechly App over a number of years to become highly accurate in translation, we are delighted to see it being offered to support refugees and support workers. I hope the immediacy of the system allows refugees to receive the support they require without delay by overcoming language barriers and bolstering an organisations interpretation resource.”
The Speechly App can be used on Windows devices or Android phones and operated in conjunction with many types of communication devices such as headsets and smart speakers.
