KantanAI Releases an AI solution to Accelerate Movie Subtitles Machine Translation

6th July, Dublin, Ireland: Dublin-based (previously, a pioneer of Neural Machine Translation (NMT) technologies, has announced that it has released an AI solution that dramatically improves Machine Translation outcomes for Movie subtitles. The KantanAI solution is integrated into both of the KantanMT and KantanStream platforms and uses a combination of advanced sentence detection algorithms and customised Neural MT to generate superior machine translation outcomes.  The process requires less post-editing and accelerates translation velocity while improving quality.

“Using AI enhanced approaches, we correctly identify sentences within subtitle files and assemble them for Machine Translation. This approach has a dramatic impact on the quality of the Machine Translation outputs. We then slice up these translations and insert them back into the subtitle files, adjusting time-signatures as appropriate. Our customers experience higher quality MT outcomes and faster turn-around of subtitle projects.” said Tony O’Dowd, CEO and Chief Architect of KantanAI.
