Hi guys

We are currently planning a presentation in two languages and are hiring an interpreter for it.

Now we worry about the screensharing a presentation. Can it be done in two languages? Does the interpreter have the ability to display their own screen with the presentation in their language?

 

Or is the best solution to just add two hosts and each host shares the presentation in a different lagnuage?

 

Thanks for your help in advantage!

 

Best,
Cyrill

@cyrill_k_snv - It is possible for to enable multiple participants to share their screen at the same time, so you could have the host present in 1 language, and the interpreter (or someone else) share in another language, and participants would chose which display to follow.  I would definitely test it out and send out instructions ahead of time since users will need a current version of the Zoom client, and they may not know they have to select the correct presentation.

Thanks a lot for your feedback. We finally tested it and it works like a charm!

Now one last question if that's okay. Is there a way when the interpreter doesn't speak to keep the main talking host still keep at the reduced volume (20%)? Because I'm a bit worried that it gets back to 100% too fast as soon as the interpreter makes maybe a breathing break.

@cyrill_k_snv - unfortunately, the original audio is set to go back to 100% 8 seconds after the interpreter stops, and currently there is no way to prevent or adjust that.  That would be a good idea for a feature request though!
