Leaders in long tail languages and crowdsourcing

As new markets are sought, the challenges increase – which languages,and where will the translators and data come from to train the MT engines? Or maybe you are working in the military or disaster relief domains. Our long history working with low resource languages means we have a specialized crowd of 400k+ skilled bilinguals, translators and annotators in 180 languages on hand to help you.

Data collection experts

The key to translating ever-increasing amounts of content is automation. But MT engines need a lot of data, and even more as we move into the brave new world of Neural Machine Translation. Appen has vast experience in collecting data, and can create monolingual and parallel corpora in formal or natural language, text or speech. Or you can license an existing database from our catalog.
