SiMax can translate any into sign language. While human translators are great, they are also hard to find and have very limited time to produce the vast amount of content that should be made accessible to the deaf community.
SiMax utilizes 3D animation technology & rendering to create semi-automated translation suggestions which are then fine-tuned by a human deaf translator. This ensures a high-quality translation.
The SiMax avatar is tested and improved constantly to ensure acceptance and understandability of the translations by the target audience.

The Problem

From broken alpha to lean development process and a running system

Sign Time, the creators of SiMax approached us as they had developed an alpha version of their translation engine, which they could not extend as it was developed by an external partner.

They were also in a challenging state in regards of their development set-up at that point.

The Solution

Setting up development in-house

After a first assessment, it became apparent that Sign Time needed to re-develop their software and move development in-house.

That’s why we helped them with:

  • finding developers for in-house development
  • running the right experiments in order to validate the correct development approach
  • setting up an agile development structure

 

Eventually this turned into a very close collaboration, as Sign Time approached us with other needs as well. As a result we set up their in-house infrastructure and developed a sign language quiz app called “Hands-Up” which is currently shown as part of the “Hands-Up” exhibition in Vienna.
