Dotsub is proud to announce an exclusive partnership with Gather Voices, a technology company that makes it easy for companies and nonprofits to collect, manage and share user-generated video content. This partnership is evidenced by the integration of Dotsub into the GV-One product. Users of the GV-One platform will be able to order multilingual captions directly from Dotsub without leaving their administration screen.
The proliferation of video online continues with social media being dominated by video content and internet users seeking video more than any other content type — even on small screens. Concurrently, we’ve seen a dramatic decrease in the trust people have in business, government, nonprofits and media. This distrust crisis has given rise to more and more user-generated video content made by trusted peers talking about products and issues they care about.
“At Dotsub we intend to make these voices of regular people accessible everywhere — from any language to any language,” said Michael Smolens, the Chairman of Dotsub. “Dotsub is ready to be a substantial player in user-generated video. Our partnership with Gather Voices is a big step in this direction.” Smolens continues, “With a seamless integration of our platforms, we have put the power of language into users’ hands.”
The GV-One platform from Gather Voices enables companies to push a question out to their customers or constituents. The system then walks the user through making a video, including holding their phone the right way, giving the user talking points and a time limit and having them sign a release — right on their phone. The finished video is sent back to the sponsor and can be published to Facebook, YouTube, Twitter or a website with a single click.
“Gather Voices was founded to make it easier for the voices of regular people to be part of the conversation,” said Michael Hoffman, Founder and CEO of Gather Voices. “Whether that is with nonprofits, politics or businesses, consumers are skeptical of slick marketing. They’d much rather hear from, and are more likely to be influenced by, regular people like themselves.”
Dotsub is a language product and services company making your online video available to all via translations and captions. By increasing the global reach of your video, its value increases dramatically with added accessibility and audience engagement. By offering translations in over 500 languages, Dotsub extends the influence of your video world-wide.
About Gather Voices
Because people no longer trust brands or organizations, marketers urgently need a constant stream of owned, original video content that provides social proof through the voices of real people. Marketers need new tools to gather, manage and publish these videos. GV-One from Gather Voices is the first VRM (video relationship management) system, new technology that directly connects organizations and causes to their constituents through video.
