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 25 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 among World’s Largest 100 Language Services Providers

Independent market research firm Common Sense Advisory recognizes WIENERS+WIENERS as a leader in $40.27 billion global industry

Ahrensburg – WIENERS+WIENERS announced today its official ranking as one of the largest language services providers (LSPs) in the translation and interpreting industry. Issued July 2016 by independent market research firm Common Sense Advisory (CSA Research), the report titled "The Language Services Market: 2016" ranked WIENERS+WIENERS as a top-grossing language service provider in the US$40.27 billion global market for outsourced language services and technology. WIENERS+WIENERS was named as the 76thlargest translation vendor in the world and 8th in German region.

CSA Research, which has published market size estimates and global rankings for the past 11 years, found that the demand for language services continues, and is growing at an annual rate of 5.52%. As part of the study, the firm surveyed language service providers to collect actual reported revenue for 2014, 2015, and expected revenue for 2016.

‘We are proud that we have been able to maintain a stable position in the global top 100 ranking over the past three years and count among the largest companies in our sector worldwide and particularly in Germany,’ says Kai-Dominik Weyel, general manager of WIENERS+WIENERS. ‘We want to continue on our course for growth and are optimistic that, in the coming years, we will be able to improve our position in the rankings even further.’

As organizations both large and small address more languages, the firm predicts that the language services industry will continue to grow and that the market will increase to US$45 billion by 2020. Factors driving this demand include continued growth in global mobile and ecommerce; the internet of things (IOT); and legislation requiring access to language services for immigrants, refugees, in the courts, and for public safety.

“Demand continues because the market for outsourced language services and supporting technology is immensely important to the businesses, government agencies, non-profits, and individuals that produce or consume information,” adds Weyel.

Customer-oriented CAT-tool addition at WIENERS+WIENERS

Ahrensburg, July 2016

Customer-oriented CAT-tool addition at WIENERS+WIENERS

Tools specialised for the work and tasks of particular industries and professions have been around for a long time. Sometimes, there is only one tool for the job made by one company. Other times, there are multiple tools available, each with distinct features or advantages. The latter is true of the CAT (computer-assisted translation) tools employed by the translation industry. WIENERS+WIENERS, one of the leading language services providers in Germany, recently added the CAT tool Across to its portfolio and benefit from the advantages this product offers.

Across, from Across Systems GmbH, offers a range of advantageous features and functionalities for all participants in the translation process chain. The program is particularly suited to enterprises with translation needs who wish to take an active role in the translation process thanks to a variety of quality assurance and security features. Should a company using Across wish to work with a language service provider, then the latter also needs to have Across. While nothing prevents a language service provider from using multiple CAT tools, many companies tend to pick one and use that program exclusively. WIENERS+WIENERS is bucking the trend; the company now works with two CAT tools, with Across being the latest addition.

‘If a company, particularly our existing clients, decides that Across is the best solution for their business, then they should have the option to work with a language service provider they already know and trust,’ says Kai-Dominik Weyel, general manager of WIENERS+WIENERS. ‘We are thinking ahead with our current and future clients in mind.’ Enterprises who currently work with Across, or are considering purchasing Across, can now take advantage of the translation services offered by WIENERS+WIENERS.
