We contacted Summa Linguae in 2021 about our exit process. Out of all the companies we spoke to, Summa Linguae was the obvious choice. Our areas of expertise interlock nicely with theirs.

Krzysztof Zdanowski, CEO at Summa Linguae, adds Datamundi’s specializations perfectly complements the company’s current aims.

Datamundi complements our current data solutions offering by enhancing the range of services we can offer our clients, and adding a deeper data science capability to address emerging challenges in the space. Our existing focus on voice and image data will be expanded by Datamundi’s top notch expertise in the NLP space, a growing focus of the industry.

It was also very important for us to partner with Datamundi’s founder Gert Van Assche.

He is a renowned industry veteran, and Krzysztof Zdanowski added Summa Lingaue is very much looking forward to welcoming Gert as CTO. His willingness to join our team in the CTO capacity was an important factor in this decision.

Since 2017, Summa Linguae has been focused on developing data solutions. Following this acquisition, over 70% of Summa Linguae’s revenue will come from non-localization work, almost entirely with US based clients.

Benefits of this acquisition include:

  • Expertise in NLP
  • Addition of Datamundi’s in-house text annotation software platform
  • Integration of Datamundi’s “intelligent” portal to give clear job instructions to more than a thousand linguists doing specialized, hands-on work
  • Added expertise in helping with each step of the NLP production chain: data discovery and collection, text selection and cleaning, test set creation and validation of the NLP output.
