Computer Assisted Interpreter System

From the combination of MT, AI, CAT tools and human resources was born CASSIS, a real time help for simultaneous interpreters. As we designed the model using the modern technology in order to improve the human performance, it can be used in numerous and various fields as real time support for consecutive and simultaneous interpreting, training, access for people living with reduced hearing, transcription etc.

It’s special, highly professional use responds to a real demand from the language industry market as it reduces the interpreters stress (by having a real time written text from the oral presentation), reduces interpreters’ reaction time (by highlighting the previously added technical terms), increases the quality of the information transmission (by writing the concise data given in the presentation to interpret).

We have designed our tool to be easy to use, easy to access (next step is web-based application), highly performant (using the latest technology in terms of speech recognition, Cat tool, user interface design etc).

We are ready to enter the market of training the next generation’s interpreters in order to facilitate and support their first steps. We are ready to be present in the interpreter’s life belonging to the current generation with a performant and user-friendly tool. And last but not least, we are ready to be present in the past generation interpreter’s life by helping them to have a new view on this profession they are practicing for a while.
