Semantix invests in on-demand interpreting

Semantix continues its acquisition drive and invests in on-demand interpreting by acquiring Tolkvox AB. This acquisition is an important addition to the company’s portfolio of multilingual services and is in line with the increasing demand for flexible online solutions. It also solidifies the company’s position as the leader in language technology in the Nordic region.

“The acquisition of Tolkvox is a very important and logical step for us to take in extending our digital offer into the growing on-demand market in the Nordics. Mobile on-demand human interpretation will help users overcome language barriers anywhere and in real time. It is an exciting development of language technology, disrupting conventional language services,” says Patrik Attemark, CEO Semantix.

Tolkvox is a Swedish on-demand interpreting start-up, founded three years ago. Tolkvox provides interpreting services between 178 languages and English in an easy-to-use app. Via the app, customers can reach qualified interpreters within 30 seconds, with just the push of a button and no need to pre-book.

“I am looking forward to Tolkvox becoming a part of the Semantix service offer and being able to make on-demand interpreting available to all Semantix customers 24/7,” says Mattias Schain, founder of Tolkvox, who will take on the new role of Business Development Manager On-demand Interpreting at Semantix.
