We are the largest platform
for automatic translation in Sign Languages in the world

With the help of our specialists and our charismatic virtual translators,
Hugo and Maya, we break communication barriers between deaf and hearing people through the use of technology.

Around his head there are talking balloons with different accessibility symbols. The left part of his body is covered in lines, to illustrate the design process of his avatar.
