How Smart Dubbing reshaped Airbnb’s Host Training.

Knowing that people retain more information from video than from text, Airbnb felt it was critical to make its First-Time Hosting Learning Series available in multiple languages to help new hosts around the world set up their listings for success. The company wanted to rely on the original voices of its 5-star hosts to streamline the production process and avoid the slow turnaround times and expensive workflow of traditional dubbing.

Translated helped Airbnb develop a new, cutting-edge video-based training experience that would enable new hosts to accelerate their growth on the platform. With a tight deadline and budget, Translated leveraged the new AI-powered voice translation service to create an incredibly effective, scalable solution. See the results in this video.
