The Aflatoun programme operates throughout the world in over 80 countries; covering so many different cultures poses many multilingual challenges.

"We are very proud to enable Aflatoun to continue to excel in multilingual communication, whilst bettering the collaborative working environment of their extensive network of translators, editors and copywriters." added Josť Vega, CEO of Wordbee.
