Xicom Technologies Joins Translate Your World Team to Expand the Real-time Speech Translation Software
Xicom is tasked with enabling millions of simultaneous customers to use Translate Your World, the speech translation software that translates speaking voices in real-time into 78 languages. “This is history in the making,” declares Xicom.
ATLANTA and NEW DELHI, April 14, 2015 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — As Translate Your World becomes one of the most globally recognized speech translation solutions, the system requirements exploded along with the skyrocketing number of companies and individuals knocking at their door. The speed of expansion required that Translate Your World go far beyond the original assumptions and expectations of the innovative little startup. With no time for slow growth, and web submissions pouring in daily from global corporations and entrepreneurs in dozens of countries, Translate Your World is in the enviable position of needing to expand its system to handle millions of simultaneous users.
“What has happened to us is a software developer’s dream,” says Sue Reager, president of Translate Your World, “We are a tiny company with a brilliant idea and massive waiting list of companies and entrepreneurs clamoring for our Version 2. The new version enables people to converse together across languages in real-time at full speed, plus offers solutions for communication with the hearing- and visually-impaired. The load requirements overwhelmed our existing system that had appeared sufficient during early testing. We had no time to slowly enlarge our technical team, so we hit the ground running by adding Xicom.”
Following a series of proposals and interviews, the executives at Translate Your World selected and engaged Xicom Technologies Ltd. in New Delhi (www.Xicom.biz) as their software expansion developers, and tasked them with growing and broadening the underpinnings to handle millions of customers, controlling the explosive audio and text data flow, plus beefing up the unique software capabilities created by the Translate Your World development teams in the USA, South America, and UK.
“Xicom Technologies was an excellent pick,” Reager states. “This is our first time working with developers in India. Our own executives and teams bring a different set of skills to the table: linguistics, speech recognition, and text-to-speech technology. Xicom balanced out the technological portfolio. Importantly, not all development companies can handle the almost overwhelming flood of linguistic data in 78 languages.”
Harmeet Singh, Project Manager from Xicom explains, “It is an honor for us to be awarded this opportunity. This is no ordinary job, we are participating in history in the making. When Version 2 of Translate Your World goes to market, we believe that it will be the first major step toward elimination of the language barrier.” And Chitvan Seth, Delivery Head for Xicom Technologies Ltd., adds, “From our perspective, the requirements for integration and the features were complex, partly because of the untraditional approach that is the brilliance of the solution. We have been extremely impressed by the client’s comprehensive knowledge of the intricacies and impact of human language on consumers. It is our job to ‘translate’ that linguistic knowledge into a robust support system that is deceptively easy to use.”
