Professional Linguists and
Translation Experts




Our team of professional linguists and translation experts offer a range of services, from translating corpora for your machine translation systems, to consulting on translation/localization solution design and evaluation metrics to improve your system’s quality. In contrast to other companies who focus on traditional document translation, our team specializes in all translation services needed to train and develop AI systems. Use cases include localization of speech interfaces for virtual assistants and chatbots, translation of taxonomies, and post-editing/evaluation of machine translation. In addition, our translation specialists are here to guide you on internalization best practices and localize your project materials so you can expand your existing Appen projects into new markets with confidence.

We have experience servicing over 235 language varieties 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 slang, idioms, and locale-specific references, as well as different ways of expressing politeness and formality, which do not always have a one-to-one correlation between languages. The ability to unite project management expertise and deep linguistic knowledge makes our project teams unique and ensures top quality results for our clients.
