Successful communication.



We provide you with one-stop solutions for all your business needs.

Simultaneous interpreting

In simultaneous interpretation, speeches are translated into the target language “in (almost) real time”. Special SI equipment is required.

Whispered interpreting (chuchotage)

Chuchotage is the French term for ‘whispering’. This is a special form of simultaneous interpretation that is only suitable for certain situations (involving a maximum of two listeners).

Consecutive interpreting

In consecutive interpretation, the speaker pauses occasionally to allow longer passages of speech to be translated into the target language. This technique tends to involve the use of notes (interpreters are trained to use a special notation technique).

Ad-hoc or liaison interpreting

This type of interpreting is a special form of consecutive interpretation in which shorter passages are translated into another language.

Technical translations

Qualified technical translators render written documents into the target language.


Quality and professionalism.



We provide you with high-quality, professional language solutions.

University degree

The professional conference interpreters and technical translators making up our team have a university degree or equivalent qualification in translation studies and many years of practical experience in their chosen professions.

Association of Professional Interpreters and Translators

The conference interpreters and translators in our professional team are members of the Federal Association of Interpreters and Translators (BDÜ) or the Association of Conference Interpreters (VKD). Membership in these organizations is a sure mark of quality since all potential members have to present evidence of their professional qualifications before they can join either association. This offers an additional safeguard for clients commissioning linguistic services and enhances the professional standing of BDÜ and VKD members.

Areas of expertise

Our professional team has in-depth knowledge of a wide range of areas and produces translations of specialized texts in a 100% accurate, perfectly phrased manner tailored to the target group.

Work experience

Our partners have extensive experience in a wide range of sectors acquired over the many years they have spent working as translators and conference interpreters.


We are working for clients in a wide range of areas: the European Union, the UN, NGOs, the automotive industry, mechanical and electrical engineering, telecommunications, economics and finance, architecture, marketing, law and medical technology (to name but a few).





Things you´ve always wanted to know.

What is the BDÜ?

The Federal Association of Interpreters and Translators (Bundesverband der Dolmetscher und Űbersetzer e.V. [BDÜ]) is Germany’s largest association representing professional linguists. With more than 6,000 members, the BDÜ represents 75% of all professionally organized translators and interpreters in Germany.
Membership of the BDÜ is a sure mark of quality since all potential members have to present evidence of their professional qualifications before they can join the association. This offers an additional safeguard for clients commissioning linguistic services and enhances the professional standing of BDÜ members.

What is the VKD?

The Association of Conference Interpreters (VKD) is a division of the BDÜ, the German Federal Association of Interpreters and Translators.
Members of the association are multilingual communication specialists who ensure seamless communication across language and cultural barriers. To join the VKD, conference interpreters must undergo a rigorous admissions process, during which their skills and expertise are carefully examined. Junior members must provide evidence of their formal (university) training as interpreters, while experienced members must provide additional evidence of at least 200 assignment days as conference interpreters. The intent is to ensure quality for the client.

How are the prices of translations calculated?

The prices of our translations are calculated on the basis of volume, language combination, type of text, urgency, and template type. This means that it is essential for us to have a look at the document you would like to have translated. We would be delighted to advise you and submit you an offer meeting your specific requirements.

How are interpreting prices calculated?

Conference interpreters are paid by the day. These daily fees depend on the type of event and are calculated individually. We will be more than happy to submit you a detailed offer.





We are looking forward to hearing from you.
