San Jose, CA – June 15, 2023 XL8 Inc., a Silicon Valley tech company that provides AI-powered machine translation technology optimized for media content and dialogue, is announcing that its new app, EventCAT for Zoom, is now available in the Zoom Marketplace. The new app expands XL8’s technologies into the online video conferencing world, delivering accurate real-time translation during multi-language Zoom meetings.

The new Zoom app is based on XL8’s Interpret platform capabilities, the same core translation technology used to power the company’s EventCAT platform for live event interpretation and live subtitling. The XL8 engine covers more than 20 languages including most of the languages frequently requested by users, and XL8 is continually adding new languages to the stack.

“We launched the app as Beta in March and received invaluable feedback from users,” said John Butterworth, Vice President Sales Engineering at XL8. “Their input was incorporated into the version now available to the general public and the result is an effective and easy-to-use collaboration solution for multi-language online meetings.”
