Our Vision

A person's native language shouldn't limit their ability to learn, grow, and support themselves. It's a form of social inequity that is less visible than gender, race, or class, yet it is no less intrinsic: you cannot choose your native language.

It's also bad for business. When you artificially limit your business to operating only in English, German, Chinese, Japanese, or any other language, you deny your existing global customers an experience that deeply resonates with them, and you lose out on the billions of potential customers who have a different preferred language. For decades, companies have been limited by translation services that took too long, cost too much, and had persistent lapses in quality. That's why we built Lilt.

Our Technology

Our mission is to make the world's information accessible to everyone regardless of where they were born or which language they speak. We do that by building the world's most advanced translation technology - leveraging advanced research in human-computer interaction to build intuitive, efficient software applications, doing fundamental cutting-edge research in neural networks, natural language processing, and machine translation to build machine learning models that predict more accurately than ever before the correct translation across 40+ of the world's most widely-spoken languages, and then using that technology to build a high quality, efficient, and cost-effective service model to provide our customers with translation services that get the job done and don't break the bank.

How is all of this possible? By building technology built on recent advances in AI, machine learning, and natural language processing - augmenting human capabilities and enabling 20 people to do the work of 100. After 70 years of work by pioneering computer scientists, machine translation is finally enterprise-ready. And we are best positioned to operationalize and bring that technology to the enterprise.

A New Vision for Localization

The localization industry enables companies around the world to interact with global customer bases that speak a wide range of languages, but doesn't take full advantage of technology to augment human ingenuity and automate repetitive tasks that bog down the process. Lilt is changing this with our AI-powered translation platform that helps companies grow faster and improve the customer experience.

How it Works

The localization platform for modern enterprises

The Lilt Platform vertically integrates the entire localization supply chain. This means faster turnaround times, higher quality, lower costs, and a simpler localization experience for you.
