Make sense of the global web
Meedan builds digital tools for global journalism and translation. We are a team of designers, technologists and journalists who focus on open source investigation of digital media and crowdsourced translation of social media. With commercial, media and university partners, we support research, curriculum development, and new forms of digital storytelling.
We maintain two Medium channels, where we share the latest news about our verification and language initiatives.
