Add an interpreter to a Zoom meeting

Can I add an on-call interpreter to a Zoom meeting?

During this period of social distancing, remote work, and distance learning, this is the question we’ve heard the most.

The answer is: Yes.

Our new guide shows you how to do it in a few simple steps. Adding an interpreter to these calls can facilitate mutual understanding with limited-English and non-English speakers, as well as the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

In fact, you can add a professional, on-demand interpreter to your virtual meeting without having to make an appointment, and you can do it 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in 240 languages. These connections are made within seconds. Even better, you can add an interpreter to your Zoom call in video or audio-only formats.
