Travis Foundation bridges language barriers where it's needed most
Travis Foundation is a non-profit organisation that bridges language barriers where it wasn't previously possible. By compiling digital language corpora, applying machine learning technology and creating communication tools, we want to create a world where everyone can understand everyone.
Currently, due to funding we've slowed down and have been passing our datasets and tools to other organisations and individuals who might benefit from them and can take them further. If this interests you, please reach out.
What we do
Collaborate for communication tools
Whether a phrase book or a translation app, accessible and innovative tools support critical, community and learning based conversation.
Compile digital corpora
We crowdsource and bring data of lesser-resourced languages together in creative ways. This ensures the continuous digital development of languages.
Apply machine learning technology
Language corpora have impactful possibilities. We use them to create machine translations that enable communication in new areas.
Digitising languages where it’s needed most.
With history of prolonged conflict, there's an estimated 4,000-5,000 Eritrean people fleeing their homes every month. By bridging the language gap with Tigrinya, we'll see communication in humanitarian and aid situations improve and open the potential for language learning and educational tools.
