Mobile Interpretation

Interpretation is one of the fastest growing areas of language services worldwide today as more people travel internationally for business and leisure. Mobile technology makes it easy for anyone to easily request on-the-go live interpretation from anywhere in the world. Stepes chat-based solutions and its large network work of professional human interpreters makes getting interpretation as simple as texting. Interpretation service rendered mobile devices just got so much easier.

Your Personal Translator

We are no longer confined to one country or one language but our communication technologies have not caught up. What if there were an app that could be your personal translator? That app is Stepes, the Uber for translation. Stepes’ real time sharing app allows users to record a message in either the foreign language or their mother tongue. The request is instantly sent to another user who is fluent in the selected language(s). Instead of hiring professional translators or relying on the hilarious mistranslations of Google Translate, anyone bilingual can lend a hand and act as a translator for a fellow user.
