Last year STARTER team TRIT
won Kaleidoskoop with an idea that makes ordering translation service easier.
On the TRIT platform, customers get an instant estimate of how much time and
money it takes to get their job done. In addition, the TRIT’s algorithm finds
the most suitable professional freelance translator for each project. System
also takes into account different criteria, such as the translator's previous
experience and feedback on their work. Today, TRIT is a functioning company.
Kaleidoskoop is funded by the European Social Fund.
