about image
OBTranslate® is an online CAT (Computer Assisted Translation) tool, neural machine translation (NMT) and artificial intelligence platform for African languages. A registered trademark of its parent company OpenBinacle.

Mission

Our mission is to break language communication barriers in rural and urban areas in Africa. It will enable self driving cars, speaker devices, smartphones, humanoid robots and wireless technology to communicate and interact with human beings in Africa languages.

We are building our platform on neural machine translation, artificial intelligence (AI) and big data analysis, and identifying language patterns and tasks which can be performed by our algorithms, ranging from:

  • Voice recognition and accent.
  • Messaging protocol
  • Programming language.
  • Natural language processing.
  • Education materials.
  • TV subtitles and music lyrics.
  • IP geolocation.
See Use Case
We're a team of programmers, data scientists, physicists, mathematicians, cloud architects and hackers, working together to tackle a single problem with "artificial intelligence and deep learning."

The main contributors of OBTranslate are people of "African descent".
