We now support transcription in 6 new languages, including German, Dutch, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian, and three English accents (UK, Australian, and US). New language support is only available for meetings recorded via the Fireflies bot and not with the Chrome extension.
To transcribe and summarize your meetings in one of the above languages, select your preferred language before you start the meeting. Currently, we do not support multi-language transcription; it only transcribes in a single language that you have selected from the settings page.
In case you use multiple languages during your meetings, Fireflies will recognize the dominant language and transcribe & summarize it in that language. Today, AI Filters and Topic Trackers work only for the English language.
Multi-language transcription is available to all Fireflies users.
Here’s how you can set up your preferred language before your meeting starts:
- Navigate to your Fireflies dashboard (app.fireflies.ai) and click Settings.
- From the Meeting Settings section and select your preferred language from the Meeting Language dropdown.
Once you’ve selected the language, Fireflies saves your preferences.
Note: The automatically detect language option is still in beta.
We plan to roll out support for 10+ languages soon. You can also request your preferred languages here.
