The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Kites was founded in 2015 and has academic roots at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, where co-founders Alex Waibel and Sebastian StAker are faculty members.

“Kites emerged with the mission of breaking down language barriers and making seamless cross-language interaction a reality of everyday life, and we have long admired Zoom for its ability to easily connect people across the world,” said Waibel and DStAker.

“We know Zoom is the best partner for Kites to help advance our mission and we are excited to see what comes next under Zoom’s incredible innovation engine,” they added.

StAker and the rest of the Kites team will remain based in Karlsruhe, Germany, where Zoom looks forward to investing in growing the team.

Zoom is exploring opening an R&D center in Germany in the future. Waibel will become a Zoom Research Fellow, a role in which he will advise on Zoom’s MT research and development.
