From Seeds to Software

In 1982, a little girl from Lithuania sold seeds at her local market

It wasn’t long before she became a pioneering trader led by her principles of trust. In fact, she was one of the first to demand better working conditions for her fellow ‘hawkers’, or market sellers.

But it was her ground-breaking idea to unite people through language and better software solutions that inspired Jurga Zilinskiene, to found our company in 2001.

In the years since, Guildhawk has grown into a business that unites thousands of translators across the world. Moreover, we are inspiring the next generation of young people to learn languages and become entrepreneurs or ‘hawkers’ like our founder.

We make AI work for people.

We design and develop artificial intelligence software and create human and SaaS Machine Translation solutions that save lives, and increase productivity. Our vision is make smart cities of the future safer, happier places for generations to come. Let us help you create a better world.

Language is an infinite journey of discovery

“When you open the doors to language you embark on an extraordinary journey that presents infinite possibilities for you, your business and future generations. Open that door.”

Jurga Zilinskiene MBE

Why we exist

We believe the world is better when we work together as one – rather than against each other. We exist to improve lives through language.

Most organisations depend on hiring talent from outside. We believe in harnessing the ambition of our own people and creating opportunities for them. We encourage everyone at Guildhawk to dream harder and achieve great things.

Because the lives, careers and wellbeing of our people matters to us, we offer training to help them realise their full potential and reach positions where they can flourish. Being challenged, meanwhile, helps us grow and broaden our horizons. We provide a platform from which our people can push themselves further in a safe environment.

Clients and other organisations feel safe working with our people because they know that their business is being looked after by professionals – always with deep respect for people and our planet that we love to show in our work.
