A self-service multilingual streaming platform

Clevercast makes it easy to deliver multilingual live streaming to global audiences. Its live management dashboard allows you to broadcast, translate and stream live video with any number of audio languages.

If your interpreters are present at the event location, their audio streams can be sent to Clevercast along with the video stream as an SRT multi-track or RTMP multi-channel broadcast.

If your interpreters can not be present at the (virtual) event, they can use Translate at Home (T@H). This is our solution for multilingual live streams with Remote Simultaneous Interpretation (RSI). Interpreters can do the simultaneous translation at home, using Clevercast’s RSI interface and their browser.

In both cases, Clevercast delivers a high-quality, global live stream using adaptive streaming. Clevercast’s multi-language video player allows your viewers to switch to their preferred language while watching the video. Clevercast player provides the best possible experience on any device and platform. You can add it to your website by just copying its embed code.

If you require a fully hosted solution, you can also use Clevercast Webinar with multilingual streaming.

Translate at the Event Location

Traditionally, a multilingual live stream with simultaneous translation is broadcasted with interpreter booths at the event location. In that case, all audio streams are sent along with the video stream. Clevercast supports multiple broadcast protocols that allow you to do this:

» An SRT broadcast with an audio track for each language. The SRT protocol is reliable for broadcasts over very long distances and may contain multiple audio tracks. Clevercast lets you send an SRT broadcast with multiple audio tracks and turns it into a multilingual livestream. Various SRT encoders can be used  (eg. Haivision’s Makito XIntinor, OBS Studio).

» A multi-channel RTMP stream with an audio channel for each language. OBS Studio, the free and cross-platform streaming software, is capable of broadcasting video with surround sound audio streams. Clevercast lets you use this feature for multi-language streaming. Just send an RTMP broadcast with an audio channel for each language.

» A separate RTMP stream per language. If you only need two or three languages and have sufficient outgoing bandwidth, you may decide to go for a setup with multiple RTMP broadcasters sending a regular RTMP stream (video+audio stream) for each language.

Translate at Home (T@H)

In some cases it may not be possible for the interpreters to be present at the broadcast location. Clevercast Translate at Home (T@H) allows translators to provide remote simultaneous interpretation from their own home using only a browser.

It works like this:

» From the event location or studio, a regular SRT or RTMP broadcast is sent to Clevercast. This contains the video stream and a single (floor) audio stream.

» Clevercast lets you add languages by providing an interface for Remote Simultaneous Interpretation (RSI). It allows interpreters to see and hear the incoming livestream, connect their microphone and start translating in realtime. Multiple translators can use the same language room. With T@H, the number of languages is unlimited.

» Clevercast merges the translated audio streams with the broadcasted video and audio. The result is a multilingual live stream that can be watched globally on every device or platform via Clevercast player.

Multilingual broadcasts with OBS Studio

OBS Studio can broadcast a video stream with multiple audio channels over RTMP or with multiple audio tracks over SRT. This way, you can add many audio streams to your broadcast without having to include additional video streams.

Clevercast receives the broadcast and automatically transmits it as a global live stream. You can use the Clevercast dashboard to configure your live broadcast, monitor the live stream(s), see realtime statistics and much more.

Clevercast player can be easily embedded on your site. Just copy-paste the embed code from Clevercast and provide your viewers with the best possible experience on any device, in their own language.

How to Translate at Home?

Translate at Home allows remote simultaneous interpretation for any number of languages. It requires no expensive equipment or advanced knowledge. You can broadcast the live stream with OBS StudioWirecastvMix or any other encoder. You can also use an in-browser studio or even re-stream your Zoom meeting.

Interpreters only need a fast, wired internet connection and a headset with noise cancelling. You send them a secure link to their language room in Clevercast. They use it to watch the live stream, translate in realtime and communicate with each other via a browser that supports WebRTC (preferably Mozilla Firefox). Several translators can alternate for the same language.
