TransPerfect and AppTek Partner on Transcription and Subtitling

AppTek, a provider of artificial intelligence (AI), automatic speech recognition (ASR), neural machine translation (NMT), and natural language understanding (NLU) technologies, has partnered with TransPerfect, a provider of language and technology solutions. TransPerfect has integrated AppTek's ASR technology into its GlobalLink platform.

"Over the years, TransPerfect has established itself at the forefront of language and technology innovation by delivering highly accurate localization solutions. AppTek is eager to help them now integrate advanced AI-driven capabilities into the GlobalLink platform," said Mudar Yaghi, CEO of AppTek, in a statement. "Both TransPerfect and AppTek put heavy emphasis on innovation and customization. We applaud TransPerfect for not only understanding the value of AI, ASR, and advanced customization, including Intelligent Line Segmentation, but also for using these capabilities to further strengthen its industry-leading position by solving current localization issues while laying the foundation to support future demands."

Through this partnership, TransPerfect will enhance its capabilities for translating audio content from more than 30 languages and dialects currently supported by AppTek's ASR. In addition, AppTek's patented deep neural network-based Intelligent Line Segmentation solution converts transcripts to subtitle files, with text broken up in subtitles on the basis of syntax and semantics.

"Integrating AppTek's state-of-the-art speech recognition and Intelligent Line Segmentation capabilities into our GlobalLink platform elevates our capabilities to serve our clients in a timely and quality-minded way," said Phil Shawe, CEO of TransPerfect, in a statement "AppTek and TransPerfect are aligned in our commitment to delivering customized solutions to clients and helping them derive maximum value and utility from their multilingual content."
