Gengo – Human translation at scale
At a Glance
We’re assisting Tokyo based Gengo Inc. – a crowd-sourced human translation platform – with ongoing design services such as illustration, website mockups, brochure and print design.
People-powered translation at scale.
Gengo provides fast, affordable and quality translations by native speakers located worldwide.
Gengo Inc. – a VC-backed company startup founded 2009 in Tokyo – has grown into a robust business over the years. Currently Gengo is working towards increasing their reach to more worldwide translator talent, as well as customers for translation services.
To this end Gengo is running a quirky and fun but also informative blog and social media campaign about topics related to translation, language, localisation, living abroad and translator guest posts or introductions.
We are involved with ongoing design services to support contents with bespoke custom illustrations, infographics, charts and icons. Occasionally we also handle brochure layouts for Gengo’s whitepaper series. In a recent project we designed the Translator Record page, a profile page which – in a playful illustrated landscape – lists out the most important achievements of a translator.
Live samples of the Translator Record page can be viewed here with kind permission by the translators Thuy and Antonio.
