VEASYT Live! is a video remote interpreting (VRI) service via the web for computer, tablet and smartphone, in vocal and sign languages. While millions of people travel for business, social, institutional or personal reasons, language can be a barrier without a professional interpreter at your side. VEASYT Live! allows organizations to communicate, even when no on-site interpreter is available. Thanks to VEASYT Live! anyone can access a professional interpreter anywhere, anytime, in 25 languages. The service can be used in two ways, according to customer needs: by calling on the spot, with no need to reserve the interpreter. Professionals are available within 3 – 5 minutes, calculating the service cost per minute; by appointment, with consultation of a wide database of interpreters, while booking slots of 30, 60, 90 or 120 minutes at least 24h in advance. The environmentally sustainable service reduces pollution generated by travel to workplaces, and allows professionals total self-management within the platform, as well as support for professional development. VEASYT Live! breaks down communication barriers worldwide to build a more accessible world.
“This platform combines video calling with a database of professionals interpreters ready to assist professionals and the Deaf community, in need of interpretation. The jury believes that its social innovation lies in the closing of the gap of language barriers on a professional level and in the health sector where deaf patients can use this digital tool to communicate with their doctors.
The impact and business potential with its straight forward business plan, is likely to be very big, which is why the jury is excited to support Veasyt Live to go from their Beta version to implementation.” – EYA Grand Jury Report
