We are in the top 100 websites visited globally and trusted by over 1B people around the world for language services around translation, localization, and assisted writing. With every business and consumer communicating with one another, we are in a massive and ever-growing market.

We are backed by world-class investors including Benchmark, Bessemer Venture Partners, IVP, Atomico, btov, and WiL. Headquartered in Cologne, Germany, we're using this new funding and momentum to expand both our technology and our international presence with our official launch into the US market.
