Telepin is super-multi-lingual!

One of the things we discovered earlier this year, during the Telepin Summit, with our employees collected from all over the world, is that we are a very diverse group!

So we have our head office located in Ottawa, Canada, but we also have regional offices in:

  • Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
  • Singapore, Singapore
  • Tunis, Tunisia
  • Abidjan, Ivory Coast
  • London, UK

And with all our regional locations, coupled with having our head office in Ottawa, which is already quite a multi-cultural city, we definitely have an assorted staff. And after taking a survey over all our employees, we discovered that between us all, we speak over 20 languages, 22 to be exact — certainly an impressive list across all our mobile money experts and departments — we actually did make a list — WOW!:

  • Arabic
  • Bengali
  • Berber
  • Cantonese
  • English
  • Farsee
  • Filipino
  • French
  • German
  • Hungarian
  • Indonesian
  • Italian
  • Java(nese)
  • Mandarin
  • Portuguese
  • Sinhala
  • Spanish
  • Swahili
  • Tamil
  • Tunisian
  • Vietnamese
  • Yoruba

Our official corporate communication happens in English, but many of our employees speak to each other, and to customers in a variety of other languages to facilitate conversations and relationships.
