The Origin Story of WhatLetter: Bridging Language Gaps

Hello, I'm Sepehr. Let me share the journey of WhatLetter, a tale not of boasting, but of bridging language gaps in a linguistically diverse world. Our mission was clear from the beginning: to create a tool that not only translates but also connects people across cultural and linguistic boundaries. In today's global village, understanding each other's languages is more than a convenience—it's a necessity. WhatLetter is our answer to this global challenge, aiming to create a more inclusive and interconnected global community.

From Personal Challenge to Technological Breakthrough

Our story didn't start in a lab or think tank but from the personal challenge of helping my parents with English language documents. This real-life issue sparked the creation of WhatMail during a frenzied coding session at Craft Venture's HackAIthon. It was a moment of clarity, where personal struggle met technological opportunity. This wasn't just about developing another app—it was about solving a real-world problem that affects millions worldwide. Our journey from there has been one of constant innovation, driven by the desire to make language barriers a thing of the past.

Triumph at HackAIthon: A Dream Turned Reality

At the HackAIthon, fueled by caffeine and adrenaline, our coding dream won the top prize, standing out among Silicon Valley's giants. It was a surreal moment of validation for our idea and hard work. The victory was more than just a triumph; it was a testament to the potential of WhatLetter to change the landscape of language translation. Relive those moments through our live tweets from the event here.

WhatLetter: Breaking Down Barriers of Understanding

Evolving from WhatMail, WhatLetter is designed to break down barriers in understanding. It's like having a friend who explains things everyone else assumes you know, catering to everyone from students to travelers. Our vision with WhatLetter is to create a tool so intuitive and effective that it feels like a natural extension of human communication. Whether it's for learning, traveling, business, or daily interactions, WhatLetter aims to simplify and enrich the way people communicate across different languages.

The Future of WhatLetter: A Dawn of Effortless Understanding

As WhatLetter's creator, my vision extends beyond just another app. We're building connections, understanding, and accessibility. This journey is about creating a world where language differences are no longer barriers but bridges to deeper connections. Stay updated on our progress and the upcoming public release here.

AI-powered language translation apps and tools

WhatLetter is more than a technology; it's a key to unlocking conversations, silencing babel, and providing a personal linguist in your pocket. In an era where communication is instantaneous and global, we believe everyone deserves to be heard and understood in their own voice. Here's to making every word count, to every conversation that brings us closer, and to a future where language differences enhance our interactions rather than hinder them.
