SLATOR - June 13 - Former investment banker Shahzad Younas and tech entrepreneur Ryan Brodie have raised $1.75M in seed investment for a business idea that has quickly caught on among young Muslims in 190 countries. Muzmatch now has ~500K users in the English speaking world, and is now ready to take the business global. On June 14, 2018, in time for the celebration of Eid al Fitr or the end of the Ramadan, the company is launching the service internationally in 12 languages - French, German, Spanish, Dutch, Arabic, Turkish, Bengali, Farsi, Urdu, Hindi, Indonesian and Malay. Younas revealed that localizing the app was no walk in the park. "Firstly, we had some technical work to undertake – namely extracting out every text/string from both our server-side code as well as the individual app codes – both on iOS and Android. Once done we aggregated this into a spreadsheet, and then began the task of seeking translators for each language," he said. There was also no technology deployed to the translation process and the team relied only on Google Sheets.
