The Cologne-based Linguee, an online foreign language dictionary tool, just closed a further round of funding from former shareholder BrainsToVentures.
The German bilingual dictionary was founded in 2009 by Gereon Frahling and Leonard Fink. The DeepL translator acts as a a freely-available translation service, which is capable of translating to and from multiple major European languages. Considering that Europe is home to a multitude of cultures and languages, this online tool is certainly useful for European citizens, as well as users further afield across the world.
According to German press reports the invested sum is in the mid six-figure region. The fresh capital will be used to expand internationally and professionalize the service.
