Back in 2008, we were a much smaller company. We rang in 2009 just shy of 50 translators who had completed 3,405 words total. Almost six years later, we’re at an incredible 10,800+ translators and over 200 million words translated. We’re charging forward and we have all of you to thank.
To show how the world is communicating freely through Gengo, we’re introducing our Open Data initiative, which will give users more insight into our translation speed, scale and quality. We strongly believe in the power of our platform and want for you to, too.
Our first step in this direction is sharing core stats on our home page, including:
- Words translated: over 210 million
- Qualified translators: 10,822
- Rate of translation: 4 words per second—six times faster than the average person can type
In the near future we’re sharing more information across the site to show how things are working behind the scenes. Stay tuned!
