I want to have a Zoom with both English speakers and Spanish speakers in attendance. I'd like to display Spanish subtitles when English is being spoken. I have a translator who can do the translation. Is displaying this possible? as captioning, or only in the chat window?

Hello,

   This support article describes our Language Interpretation feature: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/360034919791-Using-Language-Interpretation-in-your-meeting...

Some more info can be found here: https://blog.zoom.us/host-multilingual-events-live-language-interpretation/

Stay tuned as you'll soon be able to have live interpretation without the need for an interpreter!

Yes you can. Turn on live captions at the account setting level for the account. After that once you start the meeting, you will be able to switch the CC option to ON, but select "assign user to type captions". The assigned user will be able to type in real time the translation of speaker into any language. Note however that users who wish to see the CC will need to switch them on. A new option in the ZOOM menu will show up as "CC" once the host of the meeting has enabled the option.

Interpretation = live translation by people for people
We specialise in organising and running events with interpretation.
