Based in New Zealand, Straker has established itself as a world leading Ai data driven translation platform powering the global growth of businesses. 

Straker has developed an AI enabled translation platform that utilises a combination of AI, machine-learning, and a pool of expert freelance translators. The company’s cloud-based platform effortlessly manages the end-to-end translation process, leveraging AI and machine-learning to create a first draft translation which is then refined by its human translation experts. This process is managed using Straker’s proprietary “RAY Translation Platform”, which is an enterprise grade, end-to-end, cloud-based platform that integrates directly into a customer’s existing workflows. By leveraging machine translations and its big data assets, the RAY Translation Platform enables the delivery of faster and more accurate translations, lowering the time and cost to deliver versus traditional translation services.
