Social Translation Experiment Project and Eco System

Stepes stands for Social Translation Experiment Project and Eco System and also refers to the Eurasian steppes, where the world’s 400 major languages originated from some 5,000 years ago. It’s a technology initiative by the award winning localization firm CSOFT International.

The Birthplace of Languages

Recent studies have found that more than 400 of the world’s major languages and dialects including Germanic, Slavic and Romance languages as well as classical Sanskrit and languages of the South Asian subcontinent originated on the Eurasian Stepes (also spelled Steppes) 5,000–6,000 years ago. We chose this as another inspiration for our name since we love to be a source of languages for the world.
