Mobile Interpretation

Today, interpretation is one of the fastest growing areas of language services as more people travel internationally. Modern mobile technology makes it easy for anyone to request on-the-go interpretation from anywhere in the world. Stepes chat-based solution, and its large network of professional human interpreters, makes getting interpretation just as simple as texting.

Your Personal Translator

Our communication technologies haven’t quite caught up with today’s internationalized world full of people who are travelling abroad and companies that seek worldwide business opportunities. The answer to a huge gap between translation needs and professional translators is Stepes, the Uber of translation services. Stepes’ real time sharing platform allows users to record a message that they need translated. The request is instantly sent to another user who is fluent in the selected language(s). Instead of hiring professional translators or relying on hilarious mistranslations of machine translators like Google Translate, any multilingual talent can lend a hand and act as a translator for a fellow user. Welcome to shared translation.
