Holiday greetings in different languages

RevBlogClosed CaptionsHoliday Greetings in 15 Different Languages

Zoom crosstalk, out-of-focus webcams: remotely celebrated holidays come with their own unique challenges. But we’re not here to focus on what *can* go wrong. This year, we’re planning ahead and focusing on the little things to make holiday gatherings special.

Details like adding live captions to Zoom calls so Grams can follow and engage in the family’s conversations go a long way. Or, say, learning a holiday greeting in another language so our international friends on video-chats feel acknowledged. ’Tis the season to share and learn about each other’s cultures.

We’re delighted to say, Rev can help with both.

Need accurate live captions for Zoom? Right this way.

Here to learn a new holiday greeting in another language? Keep reading to expand your linguistic horizons and give this season an international twist.
