ConveyThis is a Software as a Service language translation firm founded in 2008 as a side project of Translation Services USA. It was conceived as a language switcher to offer automatic translation for websites powered by machine translators such as Google, AltaVista, Babelfish and SDL. You can see our first widgets on the ConveyThis Classic page. Even today, you can still download and install the original ConveyThis widget which consists of a cute button and a language menu.
Since we published it in 2008, ConveyThis started to take some great attention. The intern whom we hired part-time did an awesome job pitching bloggers about the new website translation tool. And one day, our web server was stalled. The amount of daily visits and registrations has put it to a complete stall as if it was a DDOS hacker's attack.
Inspired by this one day hack, we quickly started investing more time and effort into this project. We moved the tool from the shared host into a dedicated server hosted in Canada and it was a step in the right direction. ConveyThis was growing every day and more and more users were signing up installing our language translation switcher onto their websites and blogs. Even to this very day in 2020, this widget still exists. It's not working as well as it used to be as Google Translate had started charging money for their API use. However, we found a work-around solution and this tool still works with a small iframe banner added to it.
Today, ConveyThis is proud to have a network 10,000+ of small business websites that use our proxy technology and we have translated 20,000,000+ words of texts for our clients. This number is constantly growing and if you follow our YouTube Channel, you will know how quickly our MRR is growing!
We set the mission to expand into government and enterprise sub-sectors in 2020 and 2021. In addition, we offer a charitable services to eligible non-profits as well as hospitals that need COVID-19 related assistance.
