CaptionHub shines at LocWorld51, winning Innovator of the Year 2024 - Europe

LocWorld51, one of the premier events in the localisation industry, brings together experts, innovators, and thought leaders from around the globe to share insights and showcase the latest advancements. The CaptionHub team was delighted to attend this year's conference in Dublin, Ireland hosted from June 5-7th, 2024.

A triumph at the Process Innovation Challenge

After participating in several rounds of the 16th annual Process Innovation Challenge (PIC), our Chief Commercial Officer, James Jameson, passionately presented CaptionHub Live to an enthusiastic audience and esteemed PIC process dragons in the final at LocWorld51. After a vote by the audience and judges, CaptionHub was awarded Innovator of the Year 2024 - Europe.

This accolade, received for our groundbreaking innovation, CaptionHub Live, marks a significant milestone in our journey. The Process Innovation Challenge (PIC) victory underscores the profound impact and technological advancement of our real-time, zero-latency AI live-subtitling solution, capable of delivering subtitles in 130 languages.

The recognition we received as the standout innovation of the year is a testament to the relentless dedication and brilliance of our team. This includes the exceptional contributions of Tijmen Brommet, CaptionHub's Senior Developer, who played a pivotal role in architecting CaptionHub Live, and the visionary leadership and technical drive of Tom Bridges, CaptionHub's CEO, Founder, and Product Owner.

We extend our heartfelt congratulations to the other remarkable finalists who showcased their creativity and innovation: Loc & Capture Media Services,, Bureau Works, CLEAR Global, and AcudocX. Their contributions are driving the localisation industry forward, and we are honoured to be among such distinguished company.

A gesture to support CLEAR Global's mission

We were particularly moved by the work of CLEAR Global, a nonprofit dedicated to ensuring everyone can access vital information and be heard, regardless of the language they speak. Their innovative process for information dissemination in low-connectivity, low-literacy contexts is truly extraordinary. In support of their incredible mission, CaptionHub has donated the PIC prize cheque to CLEAR Global. This donation reflects our commitment to making a positive impact on the world and supporting initiatives that align with our values.
