Multi-language transcription policies

Note: Multi-language transcription is currently only available to Contact Center Speech Analytics customers on X Series.

With multi-language transcription policies, administrators in 8x8 Admin Console can set policies for which calls are transcribed and in what language those calls are transcribed. This let’s you perform speech analytics on non-English phrases.

For example, if you have a Contact Center with queues in English and Spanish, and you can now transcribe the calls in the Spanish queue so your transcriptions are accurate to the language spoken on the call. This is a major benefit as your calls in non-English are transcribed correctly.

The administrator can set a policy at the agent or queue level, assign and unassign the transcriber and language individually or in bulk. Languages include: French (CA) , Spanish (US), and several flavors of English.
