At Translated, we believe in humans

We produce great translations by combining human creativity with artificial intelligence. We believe that, by teaming up with great people with deeply held values and attitudes, we can overcome any challenge.

To celebrate this, Marco Trombetti, Translated’s CEO and founder, came up with an idea: to participate, as a true outsider, together with an amazing crew of both professionals and non-professionals, in the Ocean Globe Race 2023. The OGR commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the Whitbread Round the World Race, the most human and adventurous regatta ever. From September 2023 to April 2024, our sailboat Translated 9 will take on this extreme challenge, which is only open to boats that competed in one of the first three editions (1973-77-81).

No GPS and no electronic maps – just a sextant and stargazing to guide them on their way. No communication with the world during the journey – just resilience, empathy, and creativity in the face of the unexpected.

Paul Cayard's Insights into the Ocean Globe Race 2023

Translated 9 achieved a stellar triumph during the second leg of the Ocean Globe Race, crossing the finish line in Auckland on December 12, 2023, at 1:25 pm local time. In this leg from Cape Town to Auckland, Translated 9 demonstrated unparalleled skill, securing 1st positions in IRC, Line Honors, and the Flyer Class. Despite being the fifth slower boat in the fleet, Translated 9 now leads in IRC, potentially competing for Line Honors, and maintains dominance in the Flyer Class. The crew, led by co-skippers Marco Trombetti and Vittorio Malingri, exhibited resilience and strategic brilliance while navigating the treacherous Southern Indian Ocean, reaching a remarkable speed of 22.4 knots at one point. The crew's dedication and teamwork, evident in their collective efforts, significantly contributed to the resounding success of Translated 9 in this leg. From the third Leg, Marco Trombetti is continuing the challenge with the co-skipper Simon Curwen, demonstrating unwavering determination and seamanship.
Every week, our Ambassador Paul Cayard analyzes the race, explains the route and its challenges, anticipates key maneuvers, and discusses the performance of Translated 9's crew.
