Launched in December 2020, Vitra.ai is an AI-based video translation platform, which helps customers translate videos to 50+ languages with just one click. It can translate content 10X faster and 80 percent cheaper than most existing manual translation solutions.

The AI-based platform is context-aware and comes included with auto-suggestion, auto-correction, and semantic correction features.
While Vitra.ai’s primary focus would be on News, social media, and Video Content Creators, they have also engaged with a broad spectrum of clients across industries such as edtech, media, fintech, healthtech, etc. Vitra.ai‘s product roadmap includes the development of voice cloning and emotion transfer technology.
Ninad Karpe, Partner, 100X.VC said, “Our investment in Vitra.ai reflects the level of commitment with which both Inflexor Ventures and 100X.VC are driving the DeepTech Fellowship Program. We believe in the ‘Idea of India’ and that indigenous early-stage startups can tap wide-ranging global opportunities if they are given the right platform. Vitra.ai has a unique offering for the global markets and we are optimistic that their pioneering efforts in the AI space will scale rapidly.”
