About us

Goodness gracious! How old-fashioned we are! We like forming long-lasting relationships and having personal contact with our customers. And whilst we don’t doubt that machines are wonderful, we also know that they don’t work for everything. For instance, they just don’t have that special feel for language. That’s why only experts have been working on your texts at WIENERS+WIENERS for over 20 years.

One thing that we value more than an impressive list of clients is absolute discretion. We therefore behave like gentlemen – we don’t kiss and tell, so we enjoy the complete confidence of our customers. But we can perhaps reveal this much: amongst our regular, satisfied customers are not only the majority of the leading German marketing agencies, but also countless large corporations from the worlds of industry and economics, as well as over 2,000 small and medium-sized enterprises. Please excuse our bragging.

WIENERS+WIENERS in SKH SprachKontor Hamburg takeover

Premium language service provider consolidates its market position with acquisition

Ahrensburg, 11 December 2014 – WIENERS+WIENERS GmbH takes over SKH SprachKontor Hamburg GmbH and integrates it into its structures. By virtue of this takeover, WIENERS+WIENERS is furthering its strategy of selective expansion in the premium language service provider segment. The aim: to further build on its leading role in the market for high-quality language service providers. The move will see all SKH employees transferred to WIENERS+WIENERS.    

According to the Federal Statistical Office, a total of 4,345 companies across Germany offer translation services. In light of the highly fragmented market, a consolidation process is to be expected. In order to bolster and build on its position in the premium segment of language service providers, WIENERS+WIENERS has adopted a two-pronged strategy comprising both organic and inorganic growth.

‘Given its focus on high-quality translation and proofreading services for clients ranging from marketing agencies through to medium and major industrial firms, SKH fits in perfectly with our customer structure and corporate strategy,’ says Kai-Dominik Weyel, one of the managing directors of WIENERS+WIENERS. ‘The translation and linguistic quality assurance of texts of all kinds demands a high degree of professionalism. Thanks to our now more sizeable capacities, we can offer the discerning and loyal SKH clients all the services they’re accustomed to, and so much more besides. With the top-class SKH employees coming on board, we are also expanding our potential in terms of bringing to life large and sophisticated projects from service providers and industrial firms,’ says Mr Weyel.
