Who are we?


soSoft is a research and business group working on natural language processing technologies for Kurdish language. Kurdish language is a member of the Indo-Iranian branch of Indo-European languages which is spoken by more than 40 million people in western Asia mainly in Iraq, Turkey, Iran, Syria, Armenia, and Azerbaijan.
