About Me


I am Jani Penttinen, founder and CEO of language translation company Transfluent

I love what I do

I am on a mission to make the world a better place by helping businesses – small and large – connect with their customers over the language barriers

I am a Finn, living in California with my wife and four kids

I used to be a professional game developer, then I founded a social network with millions of users and these days I am building a company that revolutionizes language translations. I’ve lived in interesting places such as Las Vegas, Shenzhen (China) and Rapperswil (Switzerland).
