CINCINNATI, Aug. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Globili, a free, multilingual app, will be available to translate the signs and menus at the Western & Southern Open, supporting more than 100 languages, starting Saturday, August 12, 2017.
Recently implemented at the four Disney parks and SeaWorld in Orlando, Florida, Globili is now a significant tool for users in addition to event marketers and venues alike.
As the former managing director for Cincinnati's notable Fountain Square, Globili Co-Founder Bill Donabedian witnessed countless non-English speaking guests struggle to read signs. The idea behind Globili was born: Combine a sign's GPS coordinates with translated content.
"Thousands of international attendees make the trek to the Western & Southern Open each year," says Donabedian. "The Globili model makes it a seamless addition to the event experience."
Users can download the free app from the iTunes App Store or Google Play. As they walk through The Lindner Family Tennis Center, they can see their location and nearby signs, and click on the sign icon to read it in their preferred language.
"The Western & Southern Open is Greater Cincinnati's largest international event. We draw guests from all over the world," said Will Sikes, Director, Marketing & Communications. "We improve our event and guest experience every year and breaking the language barrier with Globili is an innovative way to differentiate ourselves."
