Smartcat was founded in 2016 to help global enterprises create and manage their multilingual content. Today, Smartcat is the essential language AI platform for the global enterprise.

Our client-tailored language AI turns content in any format into any language, from documents to videos to complex websites and software, making global operations simple for any corporate team. It also allows any user to create new content by tapping into a multilingual enterprise library.

More than 1,000 global companies including 25% of the Fortune 500 trust Smartcat to communicate their innovations and ideas all over the world.

Smartcat’s vision is to realise a world where there is equal access to innovations and ideas.

Smartcat is backed by Matrix Partners, FJ Labs, and other leading VC firms focusing on SaaS, marketplaces and AI. You might recognize names like HubSpot, Zendesk, Uber, Stripe, RigUp, and Quora in their portfolios. Despite the economic recession, Smartcat is growing at 150% YoY. It’s well-funded and capital efficient, providing a unique combination of a hyper-growth environment with downside protection and the ability to think and plan long-term.
