Lesan AI instantly translates low resource languages, unlocking the web for the next billion users. The content of the web is not available in the native languages of a billion people. This holds communities back from participating in the web and cuts companies off from accessing these emerging economies. We combine offline and online data to build parallel corpora to power machine translation for low resource languages. We make this available via an API to local and global companies, allowing them to communicate with customers in these markets. We have a range of customers, data sharing partners and the largest datasets in the world for our first two languages.
