Straker uses its proprietary ‘RAY Translation Platform’ which has been developed in-house over a number of years and is an enterprise-grade, end-to-end cloud-based platform that allows human translators to deliver faster and more accurate translations. The platform produces a first draft machine translation using one of a number of machine translation engines and co-ordinates human refinement by thousands of crowd-sourced human translator freelancers, followed by human quality review.

The business operates in the estimated US$50B+ global translation industry. Growth in this industry is underpinned by increased content published online, increasing international expansion of businesses of all origins, and the growing middle class in emerging markets.

In October 2018, Straker Translations listed on the ASX (STG:ASX), raising AU$18.4m to fund future growth initiatives, including acquisitions, marketing and product development.
