New Zealand startup company targets the growing online translation market

OpenBorder, a startup company in Wellington, New Zealand has put in $400,000 into creating an online marketplace and hopes to do an eBay for the translation market. It is targeting organizations that are looking to farm out translation jobs. Chief executive Jamie Kruger of the company feels it a new concept even though there are over 25,000 translation companies and several thousands of freelance translators around the globe.

Similar to eBay and Trade Me for goods, clients would be able to choose the bid of their choice from several prospective translators. Both would be able to rate each other to establish reputation. OpemBorder would charge a commission on jobs and translators would have to pay a subscription fee.  For more information on the subject please visit
