Verbit announces launch of its new Audiovisual Translation service as an add-on to captioning and transcription
89% of YouTube users come from outside of the US. Coupled with the fact that only 20% of the global population speaks English, it’s easy to see why content translation is important. 80% of the global population requires translated text subtitles (from English). For savvy business and media professionals who want to expand their offerings, adding translated subtitles to video content is a simple solution to increase global marketing reach.
Why use translation?
Translated text subtitles help those who are watching video content in a language that they have not yet mastered in order to understand the content they are watching. By translating your transcripts into other languages, businesses and media companies can increase the accessibility of their content. Companies will be able to reach consumers worldwide with their offerings. Moreover, global teams will be able to operate more efficiently with a full understanding of one another.
AI, plus professional human translators
Though many companies provide translation services, including those that are automated, quality is very important. Automated translation can often lead to embarrassing errors in the translation so it’s very important that a professional human translator looks over it. If the translation is poor, your efforts won’t just be useless, but also counterproductive. This reasoning is why, despite being an AI company, Verbit’s leadership is adamant that its translation takes a human approach to translation.

The audio translation process:
“The more languages that I can handover to [Verbit] the better,” said a technical support lead at one of Verbit’s enterprise clients. “It’s just so much less work. Even languages that we’re sending to other providers now are taking a lot of work, with SLAs and with quality, and I don’t have that now with Spanish and English. I am confident that [with Verbit] they’ll be fine. I don’t even need to look anymore really, which I do to keep track, but I’m not having to spend hours.”
