Session with Translation: Participant's experience

During an ongoing session with Translation, the original language will show on the right upper corner of the screen.

While the Translator is connected, a switch will appear beside the language selected.

All Participants (Students, Remote Presenters, Assistant) will be able to switch between audio channels (original or translated) at any time during the session, and do so as often as desired.


Selecting the language

  • Participants enter the room in original ¬†language by default
  • They can change from original to translated language as often as desired, using the language switch (top right corner)
  • When the Translator mutes the microphone, leaves the room or disconnects from mashme:
    • The language switch will disappear for all Participants, and:
    • If Participant was in original channel, nothing else will happen to their interface
    • If Participant was in translated channel:
      • They will be reverted back to the original audio
      • A message will display informing Translator is disconnected or muted (Videowall in room will receive this message as well)
        • "The translator has muted the microphone. You are now receiving the original language of the room."

  • When Translator connects or unmutes, the language switch will appear again for all Participants, and:
    • If Participant was in original channel before muting, nothing else will happen to their interface
    • If Participant was in translated channel:
      • They will be reverted back to the original audio
      • The message will disappear (if they had not closed it themselves)
  • With several Translators connected, the switch disappears and the message shows only when all of them are disconnected or muted at the same time.


Speaking in room

Participants must speak in the channel they have selected in the language switch.

  • Participants in channel A will hear other participants speaking in that same A channel
  • When a participant speaks in the other channel (B), they will hear the translator

When a Participant is speaking, the videowall shows the language they have selected in a corner of their video.
