From homework to a global business

Helping his college friends with their homework gave South Korean entrepreneur Simon Lee the inspiration to set up a global translation company.

A gifted linguist who can speak six languages, Mr Lee would help his friends at university in Seoul with their English translations.

It led him to set up Flitto, an online and app translation service, where members of the public who know more than one language can translate things for other people.
