Have you ever been sick in a foreign country but unable to communicate what you needed? Or robbed and needing help without the cash to pay for it or the language to convey it? That's what happened to the two founders who went on to create Verbalizeit out of that experience, Ryan Frankel and Kunal Sarda. Their Verbalizeit API lets you connect users to human translators on conference calls and on the web.
Youtube has chosen Gengo and Translated.net for professional/human translation of video captions. Users can access the services from their Youtube accounts, and then work directly with the services from there.
