Beelinguapp's creator, David Montiel, was born in Mexico and currently lives in Berlin, Germany. David had the idea to create Beelinguapp based on his own experience learning German. When confronted with a word he didn’t know while reading, he realized how much he was being slowed down every time he had to look it up in the dictionary and decide which of the definitions fit the context. This is how he came up with the idea of an app that would have the text alongside its translation. In September 2016, one year after its conception, Beelinguapp went live.
