We are the translation agency that speaks the language of your brand.

We do more for your marketing texts than simply translate them. We use words to adapt, tweak, hone, fine-tune and shape the linguistic identity that makes your brand unique.

It’s not just what you say, but how you say it. As a professional marketing translation agency, we can find the right words in any language. Rather than simply translating the texts of catalogues, flyers and websites, we translate the meaning between the lines too. As a result, your marketing texts will capture people’s hearts – in every industry, media and country.

The benefits for you with Schmieder Translations.

Brand awareness.

We are creative and technically adept linguistic experts with a deep understanding of brands, people and cultures.

A dedicated core team.

We see you as our partner and will always be on hand to provide you with one-to-one support with a dedicated contact person and team of translators.

A full service.

We offer more than just translation; we take care of everything that comes before and after, from maintaining your terminology database to sending out international print data.

Native speakers only.

For more than 30 years, we have only ever used native speakers for our translation projects. They live in the target country and are familiar with the local vernacular.
“First impressions count. All languages are the same in that respect.”

Got a question? We have the answer.

  • Which languages can I get my documents translated into?

    With 450 professional translators all around the world, we’ve got virtually every language combination covered. All of our translators translate exclusively into their mother tongue.

  • Is a translation agency more suitable than a translator?

    A professional language service provider can provide you with native speakers for every single language combination, connect the translation memory system with your systems, offer you online access to your company glossary and provide your team of core translators with training in all of the aspects that make your company unique. This is not something that can be offered by a single person.

  • Are our documents and data secure?

    Our certification in accordance with ISO EN 17100 obliges us to ensure information security. In addition, our professional translators work on your projects via an encrypted connection as standard. As a German company, we are also subject to the General Data Protection Regulation and can be taken to court in this respect.

  • How do we find the right translators?

    When selecting your team of translators, we not only ensure that they have the right professional background, but the perfect style too. While accuracy plays a key role in legal texts and it’s essential that the correct terms are used in technical documents, creativity can occasionally be given free rein when it comes to translating marketing texts. We are also happy to provide you with a couple of suggestions and you can then choose your team.

  • Why do only native speakers translate into their own language?

    Native speakers simply have the best feel for their language. Only a handful of people have native level command of a second language. What’s more, native speakers have an understanding of the local culture and customs – this is exactly what is needed for marketing texts and is the reason why native speakers translate exclusively into their own language.

  • How quickly will the text be translated?

    We will be happy to inform you of the delivery date once we have taken a look at the text. As a general rule, we assume five working days, but the turnaround time can vary depending on the length of the text, of course.
