World Translation Wins the German-Danish Business Award 2018

Innovative technological solutions within the fields of API and machine translation along with constant growth on the Danish and German market made World Translation A/S the winner of the German-Danish Business Award 2018. During a gala dinner Thursday night, the Danish language service provider won the live voting by 39%, standing out among 21 competitors.    

Since 2011, the German-Danish Chamber of Commerce has honoured companies or organisations that contribute to great business relations across the German-Danish border, companies that are innovative and have achieved exceptional corporate success. Out of all applications, the German-Danish Chamber of Commerce picks three finalists, who are presented at a gala dinner. Using live voting, the participants of the gala dinner determine the winner of the award. After having been nominated for the award in 2014, it was now World Translation’s turn to win the award.

World Translation was chosen based on their recent expansion with a Senior Business Development Manager in Germany, their innovative technological solutions within the fields of API and machine translation and their initiatives to retain language studies at high schools and universities.

With 63% of the company’s turnover coming from Germany, the expansion in Germany was a natural part of World Translation’s growth strategy. After winning the tender to supply language services to the world’s third-largest supplier of forklift trucks last year, World Translation’s efforts to strengthen Danish-German business relations – through initiatives on a corporate as well as an academic level – were rewarded. Germany is Denmark’s most important trading partner. Hence, it is natural for World Translation to help both students and customers to improve their knowledge about the culture and language.

“We are very proud to receive this award for our work.” says World Translation CEO, Ib Brandt Jørgensen, and continues, “Our mission is to break down language barriers for our customers and business partners. Our employees make a great effort to make that happen. Receiving the German-Danish Business Award acknowledges these efforts, and we will continue to build close relations between Denmark and Germany. We don’t just want be a language service provider, we want to be a valued business partner.”

By developing automated translation solutions, World Translation strives to facilitate work processes for their business partners and create increased value for their customers. Their innovations include a review portal for visual revision of a translation, a machine translation portal for instant translation and a customer portal for ordering translations online.
