The capito App is already a winner

Just launched, the capito App is already a prizewinner: The app was finalist at the „Fast Forward Award“, a Styrian innovation award won and entered the finals at the „World summit award“.


Reading, understanding, participating

Reading and understanding written information is one of the most important requirements for a independent life. But today, comprehensive reading is very hard for many of us: In Austria, Germany and Switzerland 24 million people and counting cannot read or have great problems with it. And we are not just talking about those with another first language than German or people with learning difficulties.

What do people understand?

60 % of the German population understands information on a B1 language level. Only 7 % can cope with C1 or C2. And yet: 68 % of the information coming from business companies or authorities is as complex as C1. Here, easy-to-read information is a great help. And it is very useful for all language learners as well.

Get your preferred language level with a swipe

Throughout Europe capito is a well-known expert for easy accessible communication. Now, capito presents its app. The capito App provides a strikingly easy way to benefit from easy-to-read information: The app offers translations in different language levels, starting with the still challenging B1 up to the very easy to understand language level A1. The most important part: It is the user who decides what language level suits him or her best.

Certified quality

The translations to the capito language levels A1, A2 und B1 are based upon the high capito quality standards and are annually checked and certified by the TÜV, Germany’s Technical Supervisory Association.
