Evren is the founder of MotaWord – the World’s Fastest Translation Platform (www.motaword.com) providing high-quality translations by human translators in 95+ languages, worldwide.  MotaWord clients upload any document to MotaWord website instantly and receive a top quality translation of any document in no time in their e-mails. MotaWord’s 25,000+ pre-vetted and trained translators collaborate on the cloud simultaneously and translate, edit and proofread documents. MotaWord delivers linguistically consistent and accurate translations demanded by businesses, 20x faster than any agency, while delivering ~60% cost-savings and a far superior client experience. 

MotaWord is disrupting the $40 billion/yr translation industry dominated by mom-and-pop translation agencies, high prices and low service quality. Large corporate clients that need translations of their business documents into multiple languages no longer need large in house translation departments, or relationships with numerous translation agencies that provide service for each language pair. MotaWord already counts world’s largest data and media firms in its client roster and is growing globally, targeting the corporate sector in key European and North American markets. As of 2021, MotaWord is also the leading provider of certified translation services for USCIS, thanks in part to a strategic partnership with AILA (American Immigration Lawyers Association), the national associaiton for over 15,000 immigration lawyers.

Evren is a polyglot and a veteran of translation services industry. Prior to MotaWord, he has been the President of Link Translations, a leading translations and interpretation firm, serving Fortune 1000 corporations and US Government.

Evren studied Management at Universite de Paris I at Sorbonne and Baruch College of New York.  He is a board member of the American Red Cross of Greater NYC, he is also a Young Society Leader.
