To ensure that the content is translated in the correct manner, while being easily understood by people at large, the company adopted a two step approach while developing the Hindi website. The content was first translated using an AI engine followed by a complete review by human experts.
Commenting on the occasion, Girish Kalra, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of Tata AIA, said, “India’s Internet usage base has grown exponentially in the last few years with the surge in smart phone usage. Our in-house research highlights the growing preference among Indians for consuming content in vernacular language. This inspired us to create a Hindi version of our website that is desi in spirit while offering our consumers the right experience, ease, and convenience powered by the latest web technologies. For us, this is yet another step in our endeavour to connect with Bharat in the true sense”.
A 2021 report by Google1 estimates the number of Internet users in Indian languages to reach 536 million in four years. As Hindi becomes an increasingly popular language for accessing the Internet, having a Hindi interface is vital to strengthening consumer relationships.
