Can you control spf.io if you don’t know the spoken language?

We recently worked with a bilingual church that wanted to provide English subtitles of a Japanese language service. Not knowing Japanese, we decided to personally run spf.io for a month to experience using it when you don’t know the spoken language.

Why multilingual churches are the future

Multilingual churches have been around since the beginning of the Church. The early followers of Jesus were composed originally of Jews, but quickly grew to encompass people from many nations and many languages. In the book of Acts, one of the first conflicts the church leaders must address is the unfairness in the distribution of food to poor widows–Greek-speaking Jews were being overlooked.

6 Kinds of Multilingual Churches

When it comes to churches there are several different motivations for multilinguality. Each church may have a combination, but you will likely find a dominant motivation–which one could yours be?

How Serving the Few Can Serve the Many

Sometimes, it’s the unexpected that give the real insights. Find out how providing translation with spf.io ended up helping the general audience at a conference this past July.

A better translated experience in the civic space

Community meetings, town halls, and other events organized by local and federal government strive to provide captioning and translation to individuals in accordance with federal law. But often times this requires two weeks advance notice and can be costly. It may also require extra audio equipment, setup, and preparation. If the organizers are unable to find translators for the event, the attendees might have to settle for less or no translation at all. What if there was a better, more convenient way to communicate with the community?
