Flitto (Hangul: 플리토) is a global crowd-sourcing translation platform (iOS, Android, web), where you can request translations as you need or become a translator if you can speak more than one language. You can read various content, such as celebrity's social media, Contents, e-commerce deals, and more, all in your native language.

Flitto provides human-powered translations. Machine translation has its limits as it cannot reflect cultural backgrounds or other specific situation in a given context. Flitto, on the other hand, offers a full human-powered translation service which overcomes these issues. Flitto's goal is to break down all the language barriers.

The service supports text, image, and voice translations, and 1:1 translation in 18 different languages (Arabic, Chinese (simplified), Chinese (traditional), English, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog, Thai, Turkish, Vietnamese).

Flitto’s current user estimate is 5+ million and is being used in 170 countries, with about 300K translations submitted daily.

Flitto was incorporated in September 1, 2012 by founder Simon Lee along with co-founders Dan Kang and Jin Kim. The company was selected as the first Asian company to join SpringBoard incubation program in London (now Techstars London) the same year. Flitto's first official office was located at MARU180, a start-up center, located in Yeoksam-dong, Seoul. Its current office is located in Samseong-dong, Seoul. Since its inception, Flitto has been working with other global companies such as Microsoft, JYP, Google, and Naver.

Points are required to request crowd-sourcing translation. Points can either be purchased through credit card or by mobile phone (Korea only), PayPal, AliPay, or earned by submitting translations and having them selected.



Don't forget! that as one of our early users, you are eligible to receive the 1,000 point bonus as soon as you have created five (5) acceptable piglix.
