Viva Translate is led by a team of engineers from top companies and institutions, such as Google and MIT, with a shared dream. We are creating a world where language and culture are no longer barriers to work and opportunity, and we are starting across Latin America.
Technology is at the core of our product. Viva is building a tool that helps people read, write, and speak better across English, Spanish, and Portuguese. We have an incredible dream for the future of borderless work. But we know that great dreams start with great people.
