Get an interpreter to help you live over video - with just one push of a button. Túlka crowdsources interpretation: anyone with language skills and cultural knowledge can offer their help for others via our app either for free as a volunteer peer-intrepeter or as a pay-per-minute service for the public sector, companies and soon also for consumers. On-demand real time over video.
Túlka started up 2016, when Barona's Lauri Hyry and Wunderdog's Laura Snellman-Junna noted the growing need for instant colloquial interpretation. There's a big need for interpretation in Finland especially in arabic, persian and somali languages. At the same time there's plenty of experts of more than one culture, only the tool had been missing. Additionally the same tool can now be adapted to other environments.
Túlka has already a network of over thousand interpreters and a working technology (à la Wunderdog). An interpretation request is answered in less than 30 seconds. New applications are under development.
