Spotify, the popular audio platform, has announced the launch of a new feature that allows the translation of episodes from some of the most recognized podcasts in the English-speaking world into Spanish. Through artificial intelligence (AI), podcasters Lex Friedman, Steven Bartlett, Dax Shepard, Monica Padman, and Bill Simmons are now available in Spanish for the audience. In a second phase, the group of authors will be expanded to translate into other languages as well.
While these podcasters may be lesser-known in Spain, they have accumulated thousands of followers in the English-speaking sphere. Spotify’s feature, which clones the voices of the podcasters into the third most spoken language in the world, will allow them to reach new audiences and eliminate language barriers.
Daniel Ek, founder and CEO of Spotify, celebrated the new feature and highlighted the possibility of offering podcasts in different languages without losing the original voice of the creators. This initiative is an example of the advancement of artificial intelligence in translation and content adaptation.
This new feature from Spotify is an important step towards the globalization of podcasts and providing listeners with the opportunity to enjoy their favorite programs in their own language. With the growing popularity of podcasts, this tool will help foster linguistic diversity and enable more people to access the content of their favorite podcasters.
