About us

Convertus AB is a language technology company specialising in machine translation. The company was founded in 2006 as a spin-off from the computational linguistics group at Uppsala University.

Convertus supplies holistic translation solutions, including machine translation, manual post-editing and translation memories, to businesses and public authorities.

It is currently in use at several major Swedish universities, including Uppsala, Lund, KTH and Gothenburg. Convertus has also created high-quality translation systems between Swedish and English in various other domains, working with clients such as Scania CV AV, Xerox, Hiab and SKB (Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Co).
