oneword as an employer: Promoting talent. Working together as partners.

What sets our employees apart? What is oneword like as an employer? Get to know us from a very personal side and start your career in the translation industry with us.

oneword was founded in 2004 with the aim of being an alternative to existing translation agencies. To this day, we do many things differently to others. Our focus is on providing our customers with individual solutions and the high level of service that this entails, which is provided by academically trained language experts, coupled with being open to innovative technologies and techniques. As a medium-sized, owner-managed and successful translation company, oneword is now one of the leading service providers in the translation industry. This success is primarily thanks to our enthusiastic and talented team of employees, who work for us both in house and worldwide. It is very important to us that our employees share our expectations on technical expertise, quality,l and commitment. As a result, we have stringent selection criteria.

We believe in responsibility and personal development

As a modern, customer-focused company, we combine a first-class product and quality of service with innovative technologies and fresh ideas. As an employer, we see ourselves as having a social responsibility towards our employees. Our goal is to have satisfied employees with plenty of room for personal development, because satisfaction and motivation are the best foundations for a high-performance team.

We also operate in a friendly and open working atmosphere with a flat corporate hierarchy. Having an equitable and dependable working relationship with our translation partners is also a vital part of our ethos. For this reason, we were awarded the “TOP Business Partner” certificate by the Hoppenstedt database of companies.

Forming partnerships and fostering satisfaction are our highest aims and our motivation. Both in-house and world-wide. Now and in the future.
