Our history

Our roots, our history – from 1975 until today

We respect our roots, and we also believe in the future.

The continuous further training of our in-house staff, the permanent extension of our international network of translation service providers, as well as regular investments in the respective latest technologies are defining aspects of our corporate development and run like a thread through our company’s history.

2021

Recertification & additional certification

In January, our certification to ISO 17100 was confirmed, and at the same time we obtained certification to ISO 18587 “Post-editing of machine translation output” – we are responding to our customers’ increasing demand and have again learned something new!

2020

What a year!

Thanks to our well-coordinated team, modern network architecture and the loyalty of all employees, we manage to achieve a good annual result in these challenging times – we are now systematically working on improving our internal communication & our processes. We enjoy this new momentum!

1998

New in-house translator

The decision to hire another translator as a permanent staff member comes easy, as we have already known Eva I. Novak for many years, regularly cooperating with her as a reliable technical translator for English and Italian.

1994

Changes in the team

Late in 1994, Irene Voigt retires. Andrea Wolzt joins our team as a translator for English and Spanish (she left the company in 2013 for personal reasons). Karin Melzer, former partner in a small handicraft business, joins our project management team at the end of 1994.

1987

The first milestone

Soon after Alice Rabl has joined the business as a junior partner and translator for English and French in 1987, we move into larger premises in the first district of Vienna. Already part of the team at that time: Gabriele Ernst, who has been with the company since 1986 and has played a decisive part in all major developments as project manager and office supervisor.

1975

Formation of All Languages

We have been around since 1975! After 15 years of training and professional practice in Hamburg, Paris and the USA, the founder of the company, Irene Voigt, a graduate translator for English and French, lays the foundation for our translation agency by starting a business in the Vienna Hilton Hotel.
