Lexifone Signs Strategic Contract With ZTE Corporation

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - July 14, 2015) - Last week, at the Asia OTT 2015 MVNO summit, Lexifone and ZTE Corporation signed a commercial agreement that will change the way the world connects and allow for the ultimate communication experience.

Recently named by International Data Group (IDG) as one of China's "Top 10 Competitive Brands," specifically "The Most Innovatively Competitive Brand of the Top 10," ZTE is one of the ten largest smartphone manufacturers in the world. The strategic partnership with Lexifone will allow ZTE to use Lexifone's software development kit to build new translation apps to provide real time translation for their users.

In addition to being the first automatic voice translation service, Lexifone exceeds the competition by offering 16 different languages and allowing customer's to personalize and enhance accuracy by "teaching" Lexifone its own custom sentences. Lexifone is also the largest automatic voice translation service, enabling calls to 500 destinations within more than 100 countries. They also offer a face-to-face service that is free to the public and allows both parties to communicate face-to-face in a conference room, office or via webcam while speaking different languages into a speakerphone through the use of the Lexifone app.

As Lexifone continues to grow as a leader in global telecommunications, the company is attracting the interest of prominent international businesses seeking partnership such as ZTE.

"We couldn't be happier about the strategic expansion into the Chinese marketplace, as more than half of the entire population of China will have a smartphone by 2018," says Steve Dubnik, Lexifone CEO. "Lexifone's automatic in-call translation service continues to attract global partnerships like the one with ZTE worldwide. But more importantly, this partnership will impact the more than 50 million ZTE users and the way they communicate across the world."
