A personalised language option will help break through the language barrier and users will be able to engage better in meetings and communicate more effectively. Given that the world is still working from home and relying heavily on video conferencing and online meetings - a feature like this is quite helpful.

An internal research conducted by Cisco found that nearly 24% of the people who participated in the research take part in meetings that include non-English speaking native speakers and of these, more than half have been using third-party services to translate meetings into other languages (incurring an average cost of $172 per meeting). A built-in solution on a meeting platform helps reduce these costs significantly.

The expanded Real-Time Translation feature will be available in Webex as a preview starting this month and will be orderable and generally available in May.
