Qonda: A new startup provides a platform for virtual simultaneous interpreting to simplify hosting multi-language online conferences

In June 2020, two industry experts – Benjamin Bühl (Dolmetscheragentur24 GmbH) and Mike Bertsch (B&B Technik + Events) – pool their competences, establish BeMi Virtuell GmbH and launch Qonda, a browser-based remote interpreting platform.
