French startup Weglot raises €45 million for its web translation solution

Weglot, the startup that localises websites and makes them multilingual, has just raised a €45 million growth investment from Partech for its no-code SaaS solution. 

Headquartered in Paris, Weglot is on a mission to become the global leader in website translation software. The company offers no-code website translation software that allows anyone to launch a multilingual website instantly. It both translates and displays the content of a website, removing the pain of having to manage multiple websites for multiple markets.

Founded in 2016, Weglot has already helped more than 60k B2B and B2C brands translate and display their websites into multiple languages, including Microsoft, Spotify, Steve Madden, and Volcom. A combination of an increase in international business, an accelerated shift to online, and growing awareness of the importance of localisation of online presence is contributing to this growing market, and Weglot is ready to soar in this space.

Multilingual websites are now viewed as standard – not a luxury. Further, the fact the software is no-code makes it accessible to businesses of all kinds. 

Augustin Prot, CEO of Weglot commented: “We are thrilled to welcome our new investor on board and excited to build on the growth we’ve built up over the last 6 years. Partech is an excellent partner to help us accelerate our expansion and allow us to scale the business. This significant milestone will allow us to become the category leader for web translation.” 

This fresh investment translates into a great opportunity for Weglot to further scale the development of its solution, increase hiring and accelerate expansion. It contributes to the wider mission of helping anyone and everyone to translate their website effortlessly.

Bruno Crémel, General Partner at Partech Growth, added: “We are very excited to partner with Augustin, Rémy, and the whole Weglot team. We have been tremendously impressed with their commitment to product quality, and the customer-centric culture they have built over the last 6 years. With this latest round, Weglot is ideally positioned to capture the large opportunity ahead and become the undisputable category leader in no-code web-app localization.”
