Auf welche Sprache sind die Vorträge?

Einige der Live- und On-Demand-Vorträge werden in der deutschen Sprache präsentiert, die restlichen Live- und On-Demand-Vorträge werden in der englischen Sprache vorgetragen. Sie können aber jede englischsprachige Sitzung mit übersetzten deutschen Untertiteln ansehen, wenn Sie möchten.  Um die Sprache der On-Demand-Vorträge in eine andere Sprache zu ändern, schalten Sie die Sprachuntertitelung ein und wählen dann die gewünschte Untertitelsprache in den Einstellungen des eingebetteten Videoplayers auf der Konferenz-Website.

What Language Will the Presentations Be In?

Although nearly all the Live and On-Demand lectures will be presented in English, several lectures will be presented in German. But you can watch any German-language lecture with translated English subtitles if you wish. To change the language of the live and on-demand presentations to English, turn on captioning and then select “English” in the embedded video player settings on the conference website.
