The increasingly important role of multimedia content in digital customer experiences has spurred the rapid growth of enterprise video content generation. As a result, optimizing multilingual multimedia workflows has never been more crucial, as content creation teams are tasked with translating high volumes of multimedia content, often with quick turnaround times.

Whether you watch the 30-minute recording of this session or read the recap below, you can expect to walk away with a clearer understanding of the ways that global enterprises can benefit from an AI-powered multilingual subtitling strategy.

Global content creators face a complex challenge – how to achieve scale in multilingual video content within established quality standards, quarterly budgets, and tight go-to-market and event timelines. With AI, the modern enterprise does not have to sacrifice in any of these crucial areas. Rajendran shared the successes of a LILT-CaptionHub global technology customer, who was able to generate subtitled video content for two key global industry events in 7 dialects. With the benefits of Contextual AI technology, the customer was able to translate 100 hours of content with a quality guarantee and turnaround times as quick as 24 hours. 

Takeaway 2: Translating multimedia content is multifaceted, but it does not have to be overly complicated. 

“Translating multimedia content adds the complication of time to translation. [LILT and CaptionHub] technologies come together seamlessly to allow us to solve a number of these problems for our customers.”

Localizing multimedia content requires new considerations beyond what is required from written content types. Adding a time dimension to localization adds new technical requirements that written content does not. Subtitled multimedia video content also needs to consider character limits, on-screen text, voiceovers, and multiple speakers. Through the LILT-CaptionHub Connector, CaptionHub sends captions to LILT frame-by-frame for translation. Within the LILT Contextual AI Platform, LILT combines the phrases to give complete context to linguists. LILT is then able to deliver the translated captions back to CaptionHub to ultimately deliver seamless frame-accurate captions in a smooth end-to-end process. 

Takeaway 3: Localization is a key use case where your organization can deploy an AI strategy today

“In the past ten years, there has not been a single word translated by LILT that has not gone through our Contextual AI Platform”
