Ceviri Dukkani

Istanbul, Turkey

Think Google translate but a human version. Ceviri Dukkani saves time for both the client’s purchasing and accounting departments as well as the clients themselves. Email traffic is eliminated completely. Client uploads the file, the price and delivery are calculated automatically, and then sent directly to the translator to translate. More than 174 companies are included in our portfolio; Coca Cola, Mercedes, Turkish Airlines and Godiva. Our point is quality of service. We are looking to improve our platform to enter the global market, develop an app, hire more professional translators and increase our marketing.

We require brands’ & retailers’ minimum effort for them to hook up on our platform, while we make it dead simple for consumers to get offers & real money with 1 tap. We then use all data available to add value for each one of the 3 separately.
