$25 million Invested in Language Service Technology

I saw this story a couple of months ago. What struck me was the fact that venture capitalists were willing to put up $25 million for what they perceive as the future of language services, namely some type of hybrid software-and-human service such as the one being touted in the story.

When people ask what the future of our business looks like, I’m guessing it’s going to be something along these lines.
