About Us

Applingua began in 2010 when Robert Lo Bue decided it was time to bring his tech experience to the world of localization.

At the time, there was a lack of tech localization specialists and, more importantly, most projects were being dealt with by regular translation agencies, who didn’t have the experience or the knowledge to face the specific challenges of localizing an app, game or website.

Robert took what he had learned working for an established software development house and as a result started Applingua in December 2010.

Over the subsequent years Applingua successfully localized a wide range of projects from lifestyle apps, through single player games, to productivity apps and corporate websites. In recent years Applingua has branched out of the app world and has started to leverage its knowledge to help growing tech companies and startups who are looking to expand internationally.

In fact, Applingua now boasts award winning and stocks-market-listed clients from around the world.

With the reputation of Applingua growing and more projects coming in, more translators came on board. Applingua decided to take on an extra Project Manager, Office Assistant and a Operations Director as a result of the extra demand.
