lengoo fuses AI technology together with human expert knowledge to create high-quality translations in over 400 language pairs. As a Techstars and VC backed startup in Berlin, we move technology to the heart of what we do by using state-of-the-art machine learning methods to create pre-translations.

Join a fast-growing, dynamic startup with a hands-on, international culture, and let’s break language barriers together!
