24translate: Technical translations for business customers since 1999


24translate was founded in 1999 as the first online translation agency in Germany by Lone and Marc-Christian Wolf. Its Swiss subsidiary was established in 2002.

At this point, 24translate had already developed and presented its first online ordering system with interactive price calculator on the Internet. At the time, this was an innovation, and set new standards for the whole industry. For its achievements, 24translate was awarded the “Deutscher Internetpreis” and the “Innovationspreis IT” of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs.

Today, 24translate employs 150 employees and has grown to be one of the largest translation service providers in Western Europe, and the second largest in Germany*. 24translate customers include notable banks, insurance companies, law firms, PR and marketing agencies, and companies of all sizes and industries. Alongside branch offices in six countries, the company group includes the IT firm 24technology. 24technology is a software company employing over 30 members of staff, specialising in the development of translation technology and processes. 24technology implements IT service management for 24translate.

Our orientation

24translate is a provider of integrated technology and language services for globally active small and medium-sized companies in the DACH region. The company facilitates the development of new markets and the lowering of overall costs by way of automation of the internal translation process and customised translation services. To this end, 24translate extends pure translation service provision by providing process automation solutions and technical translation consultations for the optimisation of customer workflows.

Individual technical solutions & workflows

As an innovative, technology-based translation service provider, 24translate is not only able to understand the structures of its customer companies in depth, but also to develop individually tailored automation solutions together with its sister company 24technology. This approach guarantees comprehensive solutions from a single source, and therefore not only top-quality translations but also lower costs overall, as well as a shorter product launch period.
