The intelligent work marketplace for expert document translations

Amazing things Alexander's made
I once built an MVP for an online super market where there was a simple digital grocery list and I went to the supermarket, brought all the items with a supermarket cart to a kiosk next to the student appartments where all of my customers lived. In my current company lengoo, I started as a total newbie to web development and I created all different iterations of the lengoo website which has been a great challenge and a lot of fun.

I met chris in class in business school and have been impressed with his work ethic and business sense since then. I think they are building a great product at Lengoo within a huge market, and I think they are thinking intelligently about marketing. I know they are relocating to the Berlin area and I think they would benefit a lot to the TS ecosystem there and also add a lot of value.

Great business model, leaving out the middle-man (agencies) and directly connecting freelance translators with customers through a marketplace solution. Three of the founders are my former students at KIT, they have a great and clear vision on how to consolidate the fragmented translation industry making it more transparent and efficient for both sides, they bring the skills from both national & international top schools to deliver and eventually expand overseas. They were highly committed from day one and showed great leadership skills in complementing the original founders’ team with an experienced full-stack developer, a marketing & HR expert and getting industry expertise into the company by hiring trained translators as their first employees. Over the years the idea has evolved into a scalable business, the team has understood the market and found product-market-fit. Their matching algorithm clearly differentiates the company from its competitors in the space. They overcame the ch

Ich bin Geschäftsführer bei busliniensuche.de, der Suchmaschine für Fernbusse. Wir aggregieren Fernbusrouten aus fast allen europäischen Ländern auf einer Plattform. Mit lengoo haben wir unsere Software in verschiedene Sprachen lokalisiert und sind mit dem Ergebnis mehr als zufrieden.

Wir kennen das Team rundum lengoo schon seit der Gründung. Wir haben uns zeitweise ein Büro geteilt und sind von den sehr engagierten Gründern überzeugt. Das neue Geschäftsmodell eines Marktplatzes, auf dem man direkt mit erfahrenen Übersetzern zusammenarbeiten kann finde ich als Kunde sehr spannend. Ich bin mir sicher, dass dies der richtige Weg ist auch KMUs und v.a. Startups Zugang zu professionelle Übersetzungen zu geben. Wir bei busliniensuche.de bleiben dem Service treu.
