Our mission is simple: we ensure your products and services are Ready for People regardless of your end user’s language, culture, or background.
We’re passionate about language and technology. We support enterprises in developing technology that crosses physical, linguistic, and cultural borders. We do so through localization, data collection, and managed services.
You may find us testing how a voice assistant handles different accents, translating e-learning materials for a global organization, or recording participants in a car to train a speech recognition system.
The result? We create harmony between people and technology across the globe.
In 2005, after years of working as a localization engineer, Emre Akkas joined forces with Hanna Golota, an MBA and operations genius. They began servicing localization and translation clients under the name uniQode in Portland, Oregon. To expand their talent pool, they moved their headquarters to Vancouver, B.C. in 2009. uniQode then rebranded to Globalme in 2010.
The name “Globalme” means bringing everyone to the global stage. Because we all live in one connected world. We are all global.
In late 2019, Globalme was acquired by Summa Linguae Technologies, a fast-growing language solutions provider with headquarters in Poland. The acquisition opens exciting new opportunities for innovation and growth.
At Globalme, we’re customer obsessed.
We build intimate relationships with our clients that allow us to identify their needs and challenges before they do. Our flexibility and forward-facing nature let us proactively build the solutions our clients need to succeed.
We’re more than service providers: we’re problem solvers.
