We are entering the future of localization—an era of rapid technological evolution where localization is becoming critical to business success. Small and medium-sized enterprises stand to gain significantly from collaborating with localization specialists. Companies need experts who deeply understand the latest localization technological advancements and trends and can guide businesses in adopting the most effective processes and tools to compete effectively in the global market.
Emerging Trends and the Future of Localization
AI and Machine Learning
AI and machine learning in localization are reshaping localization. Adaptive machine translation supercharges translators’ quality and efficiency by considering document context and learning in real-time from translator input. Large language models (LLMs) like ChatGPT have a wide range of applications, including automating linguistic quality assurance, providing background information on a source text, improving the fluency of a translation, or shifting the tone from formal to informal. At MediaLocate, we’re building AI-powered workflows that prioritize quality while empowering translators with productivity-enhancing tools. These new workflows ensure that your websites, apps, documents, and videos are translated and culturally and contextually adapted.
Automation transforms a tedious, manual, error-prone process into a streamlined, instant, error-free one. MediaLocate’s engineers are experienced software developers who standardize and automate projects. Automation is especially valuable when quality depends on the perfect delivery of hundreds or thousands of files, dozens of target languages, and complex quality requirements. Automating processes guarantees flawless technical execution, allowing us to put our focus where it matters most: linguistic quality. MediaLocate’s certified automated workflows minimize manual tasks, reduce turnaround times, and enhance consistency across all your localized content.
With the rise of voice search and AI assistants, localizing voice content is more important than ever. MediaLocate’s cutting-edge voice dubbing and localization services ensure your brand’s voice resonates with your global audience. AI-driven speech synthesis has made enormous gains in the last few years, with some of the final hurdles in generating natural speech being rapidly solved. At MediaLocate, we realize that each language comes with unique requirements and that not all engines will produce acceptable results in each language. That’s why we constantly evaluate the changes in this field and determine what material and language will work best in which speech engine.
Multimedia content, including videos and interactive media, is a powerful tool for global engagement. We specialize in multimedia localization and image localization, ensuring your content is culturally relevant and engaging for every market. We’re incorporating AI-powered workflows in our subtitling and transcription offerings, allowing us to offer these services quicker and lower cost. AI can take care of the bulk of the tedious parts, leaving us to smooth out the fine details. With dictionaries and neural feedback to customize each engine, we can achieve a usable result with minimal tweaking, even in videos with heavy use of brand names and industry acronyms.
