Translated Unleashes Full GPT-4 Potential for Businesses Operating in Languages Other than English

Combining the power of Translated's state-of-the-art machine translation technology with OpenAI's latest language model, our new T-LM service empowers content creation and restructuring in 200 languages.

Rome – Jun 5, 2023

In a significant breakthrough for generative AI and content creation, we are proud to introduce our innovative language model T-LM (Translated Language Model). This groundbreaking tool will help unlock the full potential of OpenAI’s GPT-4 for businesses around the world. It provides companies with a cost-effective solution to create and restructure content in 200 languages, bridging the performance gap between GPT-4 in English and in other languages.

Until now, GPT's impressive performance has been a privilege of the English-speaking world. Companies operating in languages other than English have often found their performance lagging behind that of GPT models from several years ago, with some languages trailing by as much as three years. For these companies, the performance gap in understanding, generating, and restructuring content in languages other than English was an ongoing challenge that often prevented them from taking full advantage of generative AI.

Additionally, using GPT-4 in languages other than English can cost up to 15 times more.

T-LM integrates our award-winning adaptive machine translation (MT) with OpenAI's GPT-4 to bring advanced generative AI capabilities to every business operating in the languages spoken by 95% of the world's population.

The predominance of English in generative AI is creating an unfair competitive advantage. With T-LM, we're democratizing access to this innovative technology, enhancing efficiencies and preserving competitiveness for businesses operating in languages other than English worldwide.

How T-LM Works

The disparity in GPT-4’s performance between English and other languages arises from the predominance of English-centric sources – such as the Common Crawl dataset and Wikipedia – in training data, leading to inferior outcomes in languages other than English. T-LM resolves this disparity by translating the initial prompt from the source language to English and then back to the user's language using a specialized model. This approach also lowers the cost of using GPT-4 in languages other than English, since the pricing model is based on text segmentation (tokenization) that is optimized for English.

Use cases for T-LM include assisting global content creation teams in content creation, enhancing multilingual customer support, and facilitating the creation of user-generated content for global platforms.

About Translated’s MT

Translated’s machine translation, named ModernMT, is an adaptive, patent-awarded MT engine that supports more than 2,100 language combinations and is available for both real-time and batch translation. It took inspiration from the human brain not just for its neural structure but for its incredible capacity to adapt, learn from new experiences, and interact with other humans. The result is a unique, patent-awarded, human-in-the-loop approach, a symbiosis where machine and human continuously assist each other, providing outstanding translation quality and process efficiency that surpasses any previous method.
