Introduction from our Founder

Those whose mother tongue is used by a relatively small number of people often have to learn languages used by a larger number of people such as English or Chinese in order to achieve their dreams. But since it requires a lot of time and fortune to do so, it is comparatively disadvantageous.

Because of this, many have stated that there is a need to create a common language for the world to use. But language doesn't just equate to communication; it contains culture, history, and diversity that must be preserved and protected.

So how can we resolve the imbalance brought forth by languages?
It would be easy if there were a perfect interpreting machine like C-3PO from Star Wars, which I loved to watch as a child.

The performance of translating machines is quickly advancing through advances in artificial intelligence, and people are giddy with hopes that the perfect interpreting machine will be available in the near future.
However, many are also of the opinion that a perfect interpreting machine cannot exist, as language contains areas that are unique to human beings.

Flitto respects the culture and history within all languages. At the same time, our goal is to develop a perfect interpretation/translation system to break down the language barrier and resolve the imbalance brought forth by languages.

We also provide appropriate interpretation and translation services for each given task by establishing a collaborative structure for people and machines through the collection and analysis of countless data that helps machines understand the priceless value of languages.

Flitto provides the generated data to society, helping further the advancement of interpretation and translation in various fields and implementing technology that can aid humanity.

A new world will open up to us once humanity can freely overcome the barriers of language. Won't you join us at Flitto as we create this new world together?
