XL8 Experiencing Major Growth, Partnering With Brave Turtles & Scriptix

XL8 is a Silicon Valley startup that provides innovative technologies to deliver machine translation automation through deep neutral network technologies. The ultimate goal of their program is to solve and improve the translation industry to be erroneous and slow. In many cases they have employed human translators, AI or both to make translation much more efficient for companies today- and their methods are excelling. According to the blind evaluation performed at a client company, XL8’s translations can be used around 70% without any modifications while as compared to Google Translate at 30%. This alone can help businesses progress across a variety of industries.

“Small tech companies are dominating all over the world,” says Tim Jung, CEO & Founder of XL8. “The translation, localization, and interpretation market landscape is rapidly changing–hugely driven by the recent advancement of AI technologies by adopting a machine- assisted translation process, equipped with the highest companies who are already transitioning and scaling up. In the AI- driven era, only companies who embrace these technologies and are ready for the future will be a vehicle for those who want to be the future.”

XL8 is a rare combination of star players from top tech companies, and founded by the Bay area’s top engineers. The startup was designed with the growth, scale and success of clients in mind, while providing the most accurate media and conversational content localization in the industry. The common belief is XL8’s translation AI technology is the best in the industry.

“XL8 is a front runner in the field of machine translation. They provide consistently excellent results across a range of languages and genres, and show in-depth knowledge in building highly sophisticated translation engines. This is invaluable to us as a leading localization company so that we can continue to provide our customers with the highest quality translation and localization results.” Allan Dembry, CIO Iyuno-SDI

XL8’s relationship with Iyuno-SDI, top global media leader and Netflix preferred partner is just tip of the iceberg. As it expands globally, XL8 is pairing up with industry leaders to bring innovation and empowerment to companies around the world.

XL8 recently announced the partnerships of two industry leaders, Brave Turtles & Scriptix.

The goal of the partnership with Brave Turtles is to mutually promote the localization of contents in the gaming industry. Together, the connection creates a higher brand salience for both companies, while also bringing innovation the ever- growing gaming and translation industry.

The video gaming market is one of the most fastest-growing in the world. In order to expand the gaming market, developers need to localize games to receive attention to their product. Dealing with the terms and dialogue in a foreign language isn’t easy nor an enjoyable experience for players. The story-telling of the game, is a considerable part of the experience and the need to connect the gaming industry’s players intimately to their gaming experience is in high demand.

The goal of localization is to create an enjoyable, non-confusing play experience for the end user by paying heed to their specific cultural context while being faithful to the source material.

XL8 Mission: To help the world communicate by eliminating barriers of languages, regions, or circumstances through innovative technologies.

Brave Turtles Mission: Develop fun and wholesome games. Brave Turtles strives to connect people by engaging and delighting worldwide communities with our high quality games.

Together, the duo will collect and analyze domain-specific vocabularies, and research the area of localization for games from speech recognition to textualization. The result will be a translation of text and speech with a level of sophistication that respects cultural references accordingly. Video game localization is all about creating the same exact experience for players anywhere in the world. This is quite different from simply creating the original game in different languages- but about providing an authentic experience in different versions that can be felt all over the world.

The project will be lead by XL8’s Head of Engineering: Jay Park, and Brave Turtles’ Head of Technical Art: Bryan Kim.

XL8 and Scriptx have recently announced the availability of a unique collaborative translation solution that brings innovation and empowerment to companies around the world. The direct connection between XL8’s high quality translation service and Scriptx’s innovative speech recognition service brings forward the best possible custom speech-to-text and speech-to-speech translation models to market, while eliminating barriers of languages, regions, or circumstances through innovative AI technologies.

XL8’s translation service enhances the relationship between clients and their customers through extremely accurate and domain-specific results, thus helping clients to keep timeline on track and to make the operations dramatically more cost efficient. On the other hand, Scriptx’s custom model results in higher accuracy on average compared to generic models. Together, the duo serves as a unique solution to facilitate vast forms of translations around the world.

“At Scriptx, we look to build partnerships with companies that have a shared vision when it comes to delivering the best possible solutions for customers. In XL8 we found just that. They bring a dedicated team of specialists in their field to the table resulting in state-of-the-art machine translation algorithms that enable us to create more value for our customers by building end-to-end translation pipelines leveraging both Scriptx specch to text and XL8 machine translation.” Frans Olsthoorn, CEO Sriptix
