In this guide, we describe how to set the language(s) in which your meetings will be transcribed in Meetgeek.

  1. Default language settings

  2. Custom language settings

  3. Supported languages

Default language settings

You can review the default settings for language by going to the Settings page, Meeting Assistant tab. The main language should be the one that is most frequently used in your online meetings. By default, it is set to English (United States). You can change it by selecting the appropriate language from the dropdown near the "Main language" section.

Note: We have in Beta a feature that allows you to additionally set up 3 alternative languages besides the main language that could be used during some of your meetings. You can enable it by switching the toggle near the "Use alternative languages" section. If enabled, Meetgeek will periodically try to detect the language used during the audio analysis by choosing the main language or one of the provided alternative languages. By default, alternative languages are disabled because the language detection is still under development and may not detect correctly the language being used at a particular time. The accuracy of the detection is influenced by pronunciation, as well as by the provided language combinations. The fewer languages you specify, the better the transcription result would be.

Note: Any change to the language settings will be applied to all your future meetings, overwriting any custom language settings you have previously set to a particular upcoming meeting. Past meetings which were already analyzed will not be affected. Live meetings which were started before the change will not be affected either.

Custom language settings

Sometimes an upcoming meeting could be held in a language different than the main language you have set in Meetgeek for your account. You can configure the same general language settings with meeting granularity from the Upcoming meetings page. The flag near each meeting indicates the main language for that specific meeting.

Note: A meeting that has alternative languages enabled will list the main language flag along with the alternative languages flags separated by arrows, as shown above.

Note: A greyed-out flag means you are not the host of the meeting, therefore you cannot change the meeting settings.

For the meetings hosted by you, the flag(s) will be highlighted when hovered. By clicking on the flag(s), a dialog will open up. From there you can change the language settings (and much more).

Supported languages

Below you can find the complete list of supported languages for transcription. A custom dictionary is a list of words or phrases provided ahead of time to help improve their recognition for the transcription. Adding a phrase to a phrase list increases its importance, thus making it more likely to be recognized. If available for your main language, the custom dictionary can be managed from the "Conversation Templates" page.
