Use cases include localization of speech interfaces for virtual assistants and chatbots, translation of taxonomies, and post-editing/evaluation of machine translation.

We can service over 235 languages and our strength lies in our ability to source translators in low-resource languages. Additionally, our experts offer the insight into cultural nuances that computers simply cannot, for example with slang, idioms, locations, products, and references relevant to the area, as well as different ways of expressing politeness, formality, etc., which do not always have a one-to-one correlation between languages. Our team’s linguistic skill and project management abilities ensure top quality results for our clients.
