Real-time translation

As people speak, everything they say is automatically translated into captions that appear above the meeting controls.

Content in the Captions & Highlights panel is in English. Transcripts and highlights will be in English. They won’t be translated.

Real-time translation is an add-on for Meetings. If you purchased Webex from a Cisco sales representative or partner, contact a Cisco sales representative or partner to purchase the add-on. For more information about the data handling and privacy of the feature, see Addendum 3 to the Webex Meetings privacy data sheet.

Beginning with the 41.6 update, Webex Events (new) webinar mode supports real-time translation as a paid add-on.

In addition to Meetings and Events (new), with the 41.7 update, the Webex App supports real-time translation. Meetings started or joined from a space don't support real-time translation.

Webex for Government doesn't support real-time translation.
