Gengo is a web-based human translation platform. The platform currently draws from a network of pre-tested translators working across various languages. Users can order translations through Gengo's direct order form or API. It allows developers to integrate Gengo’s translation platform into third-party applications or web sites and is aimed at the translation of dynamic content such as blog posts and product descriptions on e-commerce sites. The API is integrated with services such as YouTube and Drupal.
