Today’s business environment is more culturally diverse, spanning many more languages and geographies. With international travel and trans-global communications more widespread and accessible today than ever before, the pace at which we can work with each other around the world has far outstripped the pace at which we have become a multilingual species. Our collaboration platform works globally and we have focused on creating technology to make it easy for people to communicate with each other from anywhere in the world even if they do not speak the same language.
