XL8 has been named a Top AI & Data product in the 2024 Product Awards.

The 7th Annual Product Awards, presented by Products That Count in partnership with Mighty Capital and Capgemini, is the only awards program designed to celebrate the tools that help Product Managers build great products.

Nominees are chosen by Products That Count's product manager network, and winners are chosen by an independent Awards Advisory Board composed of top product leaders. This year's Board included product leaders from companies like Bank of America, Amazon’s Twitch, and S&P Global.

XL8's AI-powered MediaCAT platform streamlines transcription, subtitling, and dubbing workflows and provides asset management, in-line editing, and automation capabilities to complement its existing content services. At its core, XL8's machine translation engines are specially optimised for media content by utilising professionally trained, human-perfected subtitles curated from the media industry's top content producers.

XL8’s full array of media content services featured in MediaCAT includes text and subtitle translations; auto subtitling based on speech recognition through ASR, auto-captioning, and synchronisation; and synthesized dubbing and voice-overs. MediaCAT can automatically extract lines from the media content, match the timecode, and translate content to the desired language pair -- or multiple language pairs simultaneously. Customers can create a glossary and upload it to their speech-to-speech and machine translation jobs for better accuracy.

"Great tools are the Product Manager’s secret weapon," said SC Moatti, founding CEO of Products That Count, "essential for staying ahead in the competitive market landscape. I congratulate XL8 on defining product excellence in 2024 and beyond."

"Grateful for the recognition as the best product by global industry experts," shared Tim Jung, CEO of XL8. "This award underscores MediaCAT's dedication to streamlining editing for human linguists and achieving top-tier accuracy in global media and entertainment localization. Our focus on enhancing clients' productivity aims to facilitate more efficient task completion and contribute to their overall profitability."
