One meeting with two conference bridges

2020-04-07T07:49:58.233+00:00

We have a need for meetings in two languages and would like to have audio call/channel for each language. Translators would connect to both calls. Is there any functionality in Teams that could fully of partially support this?

    Hi MattewGutherz-7602!
    Is this translator in your organization?
    Do you mean you want to let translator dial in Teams meeting?
    At present. I still confused about why you want to have one meeting with two audio conference bridges.
    In my understanding, audio conference bridge has two types of audio conferencing phone numbers. If translator is in your organization, you can set the phone number in conference bridge and a caller can use any of the phone numbers that are assigned to your conference bridge to join a meeting.
    For more details, you can refer to:

    The translators are in our organization. In one meeting we want to offer two audio channels, one for each language, say English and French. Participants would join the audio channel for their preferred language. Translators would join both audio channels and translate between them. Typically, there are two translators in each meeting, each handling translation in a single direction(E>F, F>E).

    I am afraid to tell you your idea cannot support in Microsoft Teams. We recommend you vote for it in Microsoft Teams UserVoice. The link is: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/40166587-one-meeting-with-two-conference-bridges.
