Startups are apparently the thing to do this summer! Smartling comes from the mind of a Penngineering alum. This service allows you to pay for a sort of “app” you can build into your webpage to make it available in multiple languages. If you want to see how it works, you can see it in action on Smartling’s site, or on one of their clients, like Foursquare.
Jack Welde, Penn alum and Smartling’s CEO/Founder, is giving the most interesting man in the world a run for his money. According to his bio on the site, “Jack is the pilot of this team’s voyage. Literally. He’s a true renaissance man: a technology early-adopter, serial entrepreneur, software patent-holder, product evangelist and combat-decorated Air Force pilot.” Want to meet the mastermind himself? He “can usually be found writing product specs at midnight, discovering new music or flying light aircraft.” He’s also on twitter.
