Signtime, located in Vienna, was founded in 2008 with the aim to make the world of information accessible for deaf people. Therefore Signtime is translating different content into sign language – websites of public authorities, institutions and companies, movies, museum guides, package leaflets of medicines, teaching material etc. Translations in sign language are offered as videos which are implemented in the translated websites or broadcasts. Until recently translations in sign language have been performed only by human translators. signtime developed SiMAX, a software that supports human translators in their work by producing translations into sign language semi-automatically in a very cost efficient way. The translation is also offered as a video with an avatar signing.
