A knack for technology and a curiosity for languages form the foundation of Alex Chernenko’s journey from his Ukranian roots to becoming the CEO and Founder of Translit.
Translit is a trailblazing language service and technology company. It started in 2009 during a recession in Ireland and grew to become one of the largest language service providers. Chernenko’s passion for multilingualism and cutting-edge solutions led to the creation of Translit, and his story of resilience and unwavering determination continues to redefine the language industry.
Allow me to introduce Founder, Alex Chernenko…
Ukraine native, living in Ireland for 20 years, passionate about languages and technology, CEO and Founder of Translit – a language service and technology company making the world a better place by removing language barriers and promoting understanding among people.
I used to speak six languages and am good with computers. Two passions combined to start Translit.
In 2019, we raised investment and built our first product (translit.com) to disrupt the interpreting industry by opening up our database of interpreters to the public. During the pandemic we launched a second product: a Remote Simultaneous Interpreting platform (rsi.translit.com). Served more than 500 events, 2m per min of usage and growing.
Started in 2009 at the back of my house in Dublin with a pregnant wife at the worst time during the recession in Ireland. The company survived and grew to become one of the largest language service providers. Translit serves the biggest interpreting government contract. We have won 12 tenders in Ireland in the past 2.5 years.

2023 showed 3x growth compared to 2022. Expecting at least 2x in 2024.
I failed 9 times out of 10 before succeeding. So be prepared to fail, don’t give up, try again. Some of you can get lucky, but the very known ratio of 9 out of 10 will average out. Keep it in mind and just move on.
