VidScribe is a powerful desktop application that can automatically create local language versions of your videos. This means, this software will automatically localize your videos in other languages: Just give it your original video, press a button and VidScribe will use AI technology to detect the audio on the video and transcribe it. Next, it can automatically create the SRT files, subtitle your videos with local language text or even redub the entire video, replacing the soundtrack with a local language version. You have a fresh video in the language of your choice in just a matter of minutes. VidScribe supports 100s of languages!
Google's new Pixel Buds have the ability to translate 40 languages, the tech company announced at its product launch Wednesday. While Google has not released a full list of the languages supported by Pixel Buds, it did showcase at the launch event, several of the languages, for which users will be able to get real-time translations. Check out the list below. We know that one of the languages is Swedish, as Google senior industrial designer Isabelle Olsson and Google product manager Juston Payne did a live demo of the Pixel Buds translate feature at Wednesday's event. Olsson spoke in Swedish and an English translation went through the Pixel Buds, while Payne spoke in English and a Swedish translation went through a Pixel 2 handset.
Google just made a major upgrade to its Translate app. The company is now using a new technology called neural machine translation -- which aims to make computer-generated translations more similar to those done by humans -- to power its translations in seven new languages. Google says the update should make translations in those languages much more accurate and easier to understand. The company previously rolled out this technology for Chinese to English translations in September. Now, Google is using the same technology to power translations to and from English in French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Korean and Turkish.
Google announced this week that its Translate app for iOS and Android recognize 13 new languages through your smartphone's camera. The update, which includes support for Arabic and Hindi, is in the process of being rolled out to Translate users worldwide, per VentureBeat. In addition to Arabic and Hindi, the app now supports Bengali and Punjabi--four of the top 10 most spoken languages in the world, according to Ethnologue. Translate also added support for Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Nepali, Tamil, Telugu, Thai, and Vietnamese. Google Translate's "See" and "Snap" features allow you to point your camera at a sign or menu and watch the app translate the text in real time, or take a quick picture and let the app process any translatable text for you.
Early December marks the kickoff of Amazon's AWS re:Invent conference in Las Vegas, and ahead of the festivities the tech giant has unveiled a slew of product enhancements. To this end, Amazon Translate, the company's cloud machine translation service that delivers language translation via API requests, today gained new languages and variants and expanded to new regions globally. By way of a refresher, Translate -- which debuted in preview in November 2017 ahead of general availability last April -- taps AI that aims to deliver more accurate and natural-sounding translation than statistical or rule-based approaches. It allows customers to define how brand names, character names, model names, and other unique terms get translated. When used in tandem with a natural language processing app, Translate also facilitates sentiment analysis.
