Who we are
Babelscape is a Sapienza startup company founded in 2016 focused on multilingual Natural Language Processing with the main goal of enabling multilinguality and text understanding in customers’ applications which deal with text in different ways. Thanks to technological transfer from the internationally renowned Natural Language Processing research group headed by prof. Roberto Navigli at the Sapienza University of Rome, winner of two European Research Council grants and of several international awards, we place ourselves on the market with very high professional profiles and the ability to tailor our solutions to the customers' needs.

The company's core mission is to overcome the language barriers by enabling the automatic processing of text independently of the input language, and distilling and aggregating the information extracted across languages by means of a unified large-scale multilingual knowledge repository and semantically-enhanced text comprehension systems.
