Language Translation, Made Easy

Does your school have students that do not understand English, or perhaps parents and/or guardians that would prefer to speak their native language in meetings? With Streamer™ it’s easy to remove the language barrier. Streamer™ goes way beyond simple bi-directional language translation to give you complete voice-to-voice United Nations-style capabilities where everything said is simultaneously translated into each person’s preferred language. You can now hold conversations with a group of students and/or parents where no one in the group speaks the same language. Streamer™ does all the work for you by translating and speaking aloud everything anyone says (or types or writes as well). And everyone and every language in your conversation is supported using a single Streamer subscription. Here’s how:
  • Open your Account Settings by clicking on the "Person" icon near the upper righthand corner of the Streamer™ interface. This shows you your current language selection. While you’re on that page make sure to check the Language Translation icon. We also recommend checking the Show Flag icon and that you select your Preferred Voice. The voice you select is what Streamer™ uses when it translates your speech - it is used to repeat what you say in Spanish, Vietnamese, Arabic, or whichever language(s) are selected. When you're finished, click on the Update button.
  • Next, create accounts for all of the other languages you’ll be using - something like schoolname-Spanish, or schoolname-Korean - and give those accounts access to your Streamer™ room. Here's an article and here's a tutorial video showing how that's done.
  • Now anything said (or typed or written) in any account is simultaneously translated to each person’s preferred language. To see how it works, login to your English account on one device (e.g., laptop, phone, etc.), and login to one of your new foreign language accounts using a second device. Whatever you say on that first device in English is briefly displayed on the second device in English (that way the user knows which language you’re speaking) and then quickly translated to their preferred language. Likewise, whatever is spoken or typed into the second device is then sent to you and quickly translated into English.
  • There are two ways you can have the translation spoken aloud:
    • Hover your mouse over the paragraph and you’ll see a Play Arrow that voices just that paragraph.
    • To automatically voice aloud everything that is being said, select Continuous TTS in the Streamer Settings menu. For this option, it’s best if each student has an earbud that they’ll use to listen to the translation.
User Tips
  • Viewing the Translations:  If you would prefer to see and hear translations on a single device rather than multiple devices, log into Streamer™ using the Chrome browser for your first User Account (e.g., the account for English) and use another browser such as Firefox, Safari or Edge to open the other User Account(s) (e.g., the ones for Spanish, Korean, or whichever language(s) you've selected). That way all the translations will appear on a single computer. However, remember that you can only use the microphone with a Chrome browser.
  • Speed Up the Translations:  Streamer does not do word-for-word translation, it instead uses full context. For example, does the word right mean a direction (as in turn right at the corner), a permission (you have the right to leave), a statement of being correct (you are right), or a time reference (do it right now). We need context to determine the correct meaning. That is why there is a slight delay in the words being translated, so additional context can be used to determine meaning. To help Streamer more quickly evaluate the surrounding context, take a short pause, such as a breath. at the end of each sentence. That gives Streamer an indication that a complete sentence has been spoken, and that will reduce the amount of time it takes for the translation to occur.
