Our Story

It’s always exciting to get to see a new side of something you thought was familiar – the same goes for Sprachenfabrik. Perhaps you’ve followed our journey over the years or have even accompanied us on it. Our committed team has now become an equally committed company.

In 2002, we started off as an internal language service for the Bertelsmann Group, before gaining experience in the agency business with Medienfabrik – now known as Territory. Now, you know us as your reliable language partner for all language services – whether it’s an accurate translation or a precise proofreading of an excellent standard.

We have been working nonstop since 2018 to extend the range of services we offer you. After all, comprehensive language and communications solutions are always in high demand. We’ve developed our portfolio to cover services for all aspects of your corporate communications, including writing professional press releases and producing fair trade materials or flyers for your customers. We’re also more than willing to take on communications strategies and planning. In the field of internal communications, we offer everything you need to successfully communicate with your staff, ranging from informative newsletters to diverse and eye-catching employee magazines. We work with you to create a solution that’s right for you. And if you need them, we also deliver professional multilingual solutions right on time. After all, international implementation is our speciality.

We are also happy to accommodate your individual wants and needs geographically speaking: from 2017 to 2021, we had a branch in Düsseldorf to both advise a large new client based in Rhineland and optimally support them with their internal communications locally. Thanks to optimised processes and our increasingly digital approach to work, we have since returned to serving this client from our head offices in Bielefeld. In its place, we opened two new branches in Berlin and Schönebeck (Elbe) in 2020 – and we continued to develop our portfolio even further. So now, in addition to classic translations, we also offer the option of machine translation with subsequent post-editing, as well as SEO copywriting and video production.

What’s more, we launched our new online training portal in spring 2021. Here you can find exciting e-learning offers from and for the language industry, including topics such as translation, post-editing and communications.

It goes without saying that we continue to deliver our existing language services just as punctually and to the same high standards as ever. Regardless of whether you need a few confidential lines to an American business partner or an international employee magazine for your company, we advise and support you professionally and personally throughout the whole process.

So what makes us special? From first call to order completion, we guarantee consultation courtesy of our qualified and experienced project managers. Fixed points of contact provide you with solution-orientated advice and take care of the whole language service process.

Our usual standards apply to all our services – at Sprachenfabrik, every order is a commitment. A commitment to liability, reliability and quality. For over ten years and counting, we have been serving a client base that particularly values the professional, collaborative and equal partnership we offer.

And despite this hands-on client support, we are still able to offer extremely competitive prices. Why? Our international structure and professional facilities allow us to deliver the desired result to our clients, both swiftly and cost-efficiently. We are proud of our broad spectrum of services.
