Crowdfunding for an Open Source translation system.

Being flexible & master of your processes!

Many companies wish they would be able to develop their own software. The translate5 project enables companies to reach this goal. Jointly build and maintain that system with the power of the crowd!




From 2015 to 2017 a crowdfunding collected altogether €61.500,– in three phases with 17 companies participating.

The money was used to build a cloud translation tool based on already existing components:

  • The cloud review platform translate5
  • The desktop translation tool OpenTM2
  • Moses Machine Translation

The result is the current translate5 system with its integrations. Of course completed by many more features that have been build into translate5 since 2015 (and before since 2012).

The following companies supported the crowdfunding and/or funded additional features — thank you very much!!!
