The health crisis has triggered a boost in international meetings. Despite all the available technology and professional applications to support this international dialogue, many speakers are still lost in translation in their struggle to connect with international audiences and to build rapport by using their voice. The human factor is the first key to unlock the power of language, and this means authentic speeches by authentic speakers. The second factor is language, one of the most underestimated enablers in communication. Language is not merely a collection of words in a specific order or a simple carrier to convey your message. Language carries the potential to connect you with your global audience and international stakeholders. Language technology is there to support your authentic voice as original speaker with remote simultaneous interpreting, live captioning, or subtitling to globalize your audiovisual branding.
