Speechly, the innovative interpretation technology that allows direct conversation between speakers of multiple different languages, has added nine new languages to its service, including Gaelic. Jabra today confirms that Evolve2 series and BlueParrott C300-XT headsets have been certified for use with the Speechly app and support one-to-one conversations in 35 languages. Speechly, which was created by FITTS, uses artificial intelligence (AI) to translate spoken and written word.

In addition to launching Gaelic, Speechly has added eight new languages including Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Greek, Hungarian, Romanian, Slovak and Slovenian. With the rollout of these languages, Speechly technology can now be applied in even more scenarios where instant, high-quality and accurate interpretation is crucial. Speechly is designed to help organisations cut interpretation fees and simplify the translation process to improve communication.

Private and Public Sector organisations frequently encounter communication problems that reduce their ability to provide services effectively. Speechly technology supports a wide variety of uses from police, inter-governmental negotiations, paramedics, and disaster response, to business meetings, journalism, academic research and much more, by facilitating natural and seamless conversations in the speaker’s native language.

Speechly works exclusively with compatible Jabra professional headsets and speakerphones for conversations between two individuals. Jabra’s Evolve2 Series professional headsets offer outstanding call quality and wireless audio, enhancing productivity wherever you are. All Speechly conversations can be recorded, and a transcription of the conversation is also provided.

BlueParrott C300-XT headsets are engineered to make hands-free communication easy and reliable; ideal for frontline workers and first responders. A Microsoft Teams Walkie Talkie feature enables workers to use their smartphone or tablet as a walkie-talkie for group conversations, keeping distributed teams connected. The BlueParrott C300-XT comes with access to the Walkie Talkie feature already programmed into the headset’s BlueParrott Button™, offering clear and instant Push-to-Talk collaboration with colleagues. In addition, the headsets deliver 80 per cent noise cancellation*, enabling users to communicate clearly, even in demanding work environments.

James Haworth, Managing Director at FITTS, says, “When speaking to our partners and customers in Ireland, we recognised the huge demand for accurate and reliable Gaelic translation. Organisations in Ireland no longer have to forego translation into Gaelic or spend enormous sums of money on interpreters to resolve issues. We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with Jabra, and with the addition of these nine new languages, to continue to break down the language barrier for organisations in Ireland and around the world.”

John Nesbitt, Territory Director, Ireland at Jabra, said: “The availability of Speechly technology in Gaelic marks an important milestone, allowing users to speak in their native language and to receive real-time interpretation through the Speechly app. Jabra’s collaboration with Speechly offers world-class audio quality and a new level of integration with Jabra’s headsets. Users in Ireland can now enjoy seamless communication, helping organisations to improve collaboration and work more efficiently than ever before.”

Speechly can translate between the following 35 languages: Arabic, Bulgaria, Cantonese (Traditional), Catalan, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Hungarian, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Portuguese (Portugal), Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Tamil, Telugu, Thai, and Turkish.
