New agreement makes Y Translator’s AI-assisted speech recognition and translation processing easily accessible to OOONA customers

Tel Aviv, Israel, December 9th, 2020 – OOONA announces a technology agreement with US-based Y Translator. The partnership makes Y Translator’s AI-based speech-to-text and translation processing easily accessible to users of the OOONA platform.

“We are pleased to be co-operating with OOONA,” says Y Translator founder Eric Jung. “The processes we employ allow content to be processed in less than real time. Captions can also be translated from English into Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish. Line-breaks in the English original are preserved in the target language, further reducing the work to be done by subtitle editors.” 

“Y Translator’s AI resource is a powerful addition to the multiple engines we offer,” comments OOONA CEO and co-founder Wayne Garb. “It allows closed captions to be generated automatically in minutes. Users can then proofread and polish them into broadcast-quality captions. Y Translator will be available on a per-minute pay-as-you-go basis directly from the OOONA Shop section of our website.”

The OOONA Shop offers fast online access to a wide range of facilities designed for use by translation, captioning and subtitling service providers. These include OOONA Create, Translate, Transcribe, Review, Subtitle Converter, Burn & Encode and Compare. Each is accessible on an individual pay-as-you-go basis.


OOONA.Net Ltd ( was founded in 2012 with the aim of developing professional management and production tools for the localisation industry. The company’s flagship product is OOONA Manager, a cloud-based system for managing translation, subtitling and captioning workflows in a user-centric approach, with full visibility over the localisation workflow and integration with financial and production tools.
