Helping various language groups to communicate more efficiently might seem like an ambitious project, but that’s exactly what Reverso – Softissimo has been doing successfully for the last 10 years.Starting in the early days of Internet, Reverso has developed the first free online high-performance translation service (reverso.net). Since then, with the development of corporate Intranet websites, Reverso has supported big names in managing multilingual communication.
Despite the popularity of our software, our Research and Development team constantly strives for innovation. This means Reverso can keep up with the very latest consumer trends: Web 2.0, Internet tablets, IPhones, voice commands, etc. The recipe for our success never changes: accurate and relevant language solutions combined with user-friendly design and browsing experience.
