The global technological progress has exploded in recent times. However, this exponential growth is confined to a handful of countries, while a majority of the population remains deprived of knowledge in general. According to the 2018 statistics, more than 60% of the viewers on YouTube come from countries whose primary language is not English. On the contrary, only 6% of the videos are in languages other than English. This creates a major language barrier for a majority of the viewers. Our app, PolyGlot, aims to bridge this huge gap by incorporating Machine Learning, one of the most sought-after technologies of this decade. PolyGlot, as the name suggests, is a video translator app which translates videos in any of the major languages into the language of your choice in real time.
