Known for its rich industrial heritage and focus on technological innovation, Chemnitz strives to be a leader in digital administration. The city administration is committed to transparency, efficiency, and accessibility, aiming to improve municipal services and foster citizen engagement in local governance.


Chemnitz needed a reliable solution to efficiently combine audio transcription and video subtitling through a carefully planned tender process. The primary focus was to enhance the documentation of council meetings, ensuring improved transparency and accessibility of the municipal administration. The city required a quick, precise, and easily accessible minute-taking process to meet legal standards and guarantee comprehensive accessibility for all citizens. Specific requirements included high-quality transcription with speaker recognition and the subtitling and translation of video content into English. The objective was to convert audio recordings of council meetings into highly accurate, editable texts.
