When an emergency impacts your community, you can’t let any barriers stand in the way of getting every citizen the information they need to take immediate action. To help you better serve the diverse needs of your community, CivicReady® is pleased to announce the availability of multilingual translation for voice calls in twenty languages. Now, whenever you share emergency or routine email, text, or voice notifications with your citizens, your messages can be automatically translated based on the subscriber’s pre-set preference. This functionality within the CivicReady mass notification system helps to ensure that all citizens can quickly receive and act on urgent information, with no confusion or delays.
