25 Jan How do you pronounce Yimian? Yimi-Anne
Our company’s name is “Yimian”, the spelling of “一面”, which means “one side” in Chinese.
It takes its origin in the Möbius strip, a surface with only one side and only one boundary.
Just like the strip, data and reality seem to have a boundary, but they actually form one seamless side.
English-speaking friends usually ask us how to pronounce “Yimian” correctly. It’s easy. Just say “Yimi-Anne”, you would sound like a Chinese speaker. Try it!
