LONDON, March 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ONEm is pleased to announce its partnership with Lexifone that will allow Mobile Operators to provide their subscribers with Lexifone's automatic, in-call translation services. ONEm is a global platform for Mobile Operators, offering unlimited membership services to their subscribers over voice and SMS in a way that brings the traditional mobile user experience closer to what people experience on the internet.
ONEm has developed a unique ecosystem which welcomes innovative service providers, such as Lexifone, to integrate their technologies onto the ONEm platform to reach a wider audience. ONEm offers exciting innovative services Through-The-Operator (TTO) rather than Over-The-Top (OTT), thus working in both the interest of the Mobile Operator and subscriber. The Mobile Operator can provide first of a kind innovative services accessible on any handset without the need for internet connectivity. ONEm's partnership with Lexifone provides Mobile Operators with an innovative way to meet their subscribers' growing demand for multi-lingual communication without the need to invest in any additional infrastructure.
"We are excited about the beneficial effects this partnership with ONEm presents to mobile users across the world," states Itay Sagie, Lexifone's Vice President of Business Development. Itay continues, "Bridging language barriers is a tremendous leap towards the globalization of business and education, and Lexifone is pleased to be able to broaden the distribution and exposure of our services through this partnership with ONEm. We see this as yet another step toward helping businesses, families and the population in general, when it comes to the realm of communications." Itay Sagie spoke about the exciting partnership in front of crowds at ONEm's stand at Mobile World Congress Barcelona in February.
Christopher Richardson, CEO of ONEm adds, "Lexifone evens up the playing field by providing on-the-fly verbal language translation services within the reach of ordinary people with any type of mobile device over the global ONEm Mobile Operator Supported Network. That is a very powerful reason for why we have teamed up with Lexifone for deployment on our platform."
Lexifone's services currently offer 16 different languages, with the capability to understand variations of the major regional accents. Lexifone is an invaluable tool for business, education and entertainment and presents a first time opportunity for people to be able to communicate in their natural language and have an accurate translation delivered instantaneously in another language on the other end of the communication transaction.
Lexifone vocal language translation will be available to ONEm advanced voice members as a freemium service. Over time, billions of users will have access to this service through their Mobile Operators, with many more languages and dialects added over time.
Lexifone is the world's only privately-held automated technology for in-call interpretation. Lexifone translates outgoing and incoming calls in 16 different languages on any type of phone and is the biggest automatic voice interpreter service, enabling calls to 500 destinations within more than 100 countries.
The company is headquartered in New York, with an R&D center in Haifa, Israel, and a business development office in China. To learn more about Lexifone visit www.lexifone.net or visit theLexifone YouTube channel.
