About Us

Gengo is a technology company making translation simple and removing the language barrier for customers as they go global. Customers order human translation through our website or our API, which lets you plug into our growing network of over 20,000 translators. Gengo helps a wide range of customers — from individual businesses to global enterprises. Gengo also builds a platform to create training data for AI models, helping companies build better machine learning technology. Approximately 70 employees are working in offices around the globe including Tokyo, San Mateo, London, and Manila. Although spread-out, we function as one-team through "wormholes" — our always-on video portals. Essentially, our headquarters is on the Internet!
