XL8 Unveils Real-Rime Interpretation for Zoom Meetings
XL8, a provider of artificial intelligence-powered machine translation technology, is expanding its interpretation engine with a new app for real-time translation during multi-language Zoom meetings.
"Zoom is now a permanent part of our lives for work and social interaction," said Tim Jung, CEO of XL8, in a statement. "It's an all-too-common scenario where one participant may only speak French or Vietnamese while the host is a primarily English speaker, for example. The interaction would be limited at best, and when there are multiple participants each speaking a different language it can get unwieldy. Our easy-to-use app removes that language barrier and lets participants have more productive online meeting experiences without worrying about missing key words."
The new Zoom Integration is based on the XL8 Interpret platform capabilities, the same core translation technologies used to power the company's EventCat platform for live event interpretation and live subtitling and MediaCAT platform for media content localization.
The XL8 engine covers more than 20 languages and 355 language pairs.
"What sets this apart from competitive offerings is we are doing real-time translation and enabling multiple languages in the same software suite, and all based on the colloquial speech patterns people use every day," said John Butterworth, vice president of sales engineering at XL8, in a statement. "It's an ideal solution for any sized organization with distributed employees or even for individual users who often communicate with others who speak different languages."
