About Us

Dear friend,welcome!Here you will learn something different.

As the leading language-learning software in the world, Rosetta Stone makes learning a new language second nature. Millions of learners in more than 150 countries have already used our software to gain the confidence that comes with truly knowing a new language.With Rosetta Stone at the helm, the future of language learning is very bright indeed.

That time came in 1992 when Fairfield Language Technologies was founded in Harrisonburg, Va. Allen, the company’s Chairman and President, recruited his brother, Eugene Stoltzfus, from the world of architecture to be the company’s first Executive Vice President. Eugene also lent design expertise to the structural and visual components of the program, which quickly went from a dream to a reality.

In another flash of brilliance, Allen, John and Eugene called their product “Rosetta Stone,” named after the artifact that had unlocked the secrets of Egyptian hieroglyphics for linguists. The name certainly fits, as Rosetta Stone software now unlocks language-learning success for millions of users worldwide.
