Our teammates are all children of immigrants - our families come from China, Mexico, and Vietnam and other countries. Growing up, we were the translators, and in many ways, the sole lifeline for our families. English was not their first language and navigating daily life in a new country was already hard enough -- imagine attempting to navigate social services, government and legal systems, healthcare, financial institutions, and other complex spaces on top of that.
That is where the Viva Translate comes in. Informed by our own community experiences alongside hundreds of hours of interviews and user studies, we designed an in-message translation tool for organizations that work closely with non-native speakers.
Viva Translate strives to increase language access for underserved populations, to further encourage equality, self-empowerment, and overall better translation experiences. We are relentlessly committed to making a difference in people's lives, regardless of their language, culture, or ability. Together with your help, we can create a world where people can live life without language barriers.
