The translation company has an ambitious growth plan that involves opening up to European and Asian markets.
The startup Berba, which offers translation services boosted by Artificial Intelligence, has closed a funding round of 250.000 euros in which primarily private investors, primarily from the Basque Country have participated.
Berba, with its headquarters in Bilbao, has created a platform that allows its clients to manage translations from one place with all the guarantees of a professional service. The company is in charge of finding the best native translator for each project and optimizes the cost and time of its work thanks to its translation tools using AI.
“We save the translator a lot of time they would spend coordinating with the client as well as doing the actual translation thanks to AI. That’s why we can offer turnaround times much quicker than the market average without losing quality”, explains Thomas Trincado, CEO and co-founder of Berba.
Marguerite Halley, CCO and co-founder of Berba, assures that “clients appreciate not having to worry about anything else other than receiving their translation within the established delivery time. We have built a model where we erase the bureaucratic barriers between the client and the translator so both can focus on their work.”
After the closing of this funding round, the company has a very ambitious growth plan in mind where they will begin to open up to the European market and, in a second phase, break into the Asian market. “There are no major competitors in the European market, much less in Asia. We have the opportunity to be true disruptors in markets that are gaining international importance day after day,” said Diego Andrés, third founding member of Berba and CMO.
The fourth partner and startup’s CTO, Beñat Espiña, points out that Berba will soon launch many new functionalities that will allow processing new file formats as well as provide new services that round out the experience for each client.
