Being a Babelverse User – What is Babelverse and How It Works

Babelverse is the "universal translator" for spoken communication, powered by a global community of remote interpreters.

Breaking Down Language Barriers, In Any Situation

Phase 1

Babelverse is being used today at conferences and other events, for both attendees and remote viewers, without needing expensive specialised equipment and requiring interpreters to be on-site.

Live-streamed talks are made available in multiple languages, for people who would be unable to attend, let alone understand.

Need interpretation? Contact our Business Services team, or make a request.

Phase 2

Babelverse will soon allow anybody to benefit from on-the-spot interpretation on their mobile devices, during everyday conversations, going beyond the phrasebook to actually communicate when traveling, for business or pleasure. With the convenience and for around the cost of a mobile phone call!

Users will be able to make a request for a given language pair, select a tier of service, and almost instantly be connected to the best available interpreter. Even without access to the internet, by making a call to a local-rate or toll-free phone number…

Every day we're getting closer to achieving our grand vision. Here’s a video showing one example of Babelverse in action.

Quality Human Communication, Powered by People

Babelverse relies on people to preserve the quality, context, cultural relevance, tone and emotion of the spoken word. Much better than any algorithm! Machine translation is just not reliable for real conversations.

Different Tiers of Service, for Different Situations

On Babelverse you can choose from 3 distinct groups of interpreters, depending on your need:

Yellow Belt (Multilingual)
Free service by new members of the community to help you communicate in day-to-day informal situations. Comes with no guarantees, but optional "thank you donations" help discover skilled language talent.

Purple Belt (Experienced)
Affordable service by multilingual people who have proven experience on Babelverse. For casual discussions or urgent help in a difficult situation.

Black Belt (Professional)
High quality service by professional interpreters (with specialised training, accreditation and/or a lot of proven experience). For conferences, business meetings, and any critical discussions...

Babelverse creates a new source of income for people all over the world, as skilled multilingual members and professional interpreters can earn money for their time.

Rates are set by Babelverse according to a unique "fair trade" approach, varying per language pair according to parameters such as cost of living and purchasing power. Babelverse interpreters receive a 70% share of the interpretation price.
