oneword as an employer:

Satisfaction is what we strive for.

As a modern, customer-focused company, we combine a first-class product and quality of service with innovative technologies and fresh ideas.

We also operate in a friendly and open working atmosphere with a flat corporate hierarchy.

Comments from colleagues

  • "oneword is a modern company with an excellent working environment –
    not least thanks to our exceptional colleagues. It's working with translators
    from such a wide variety of cultural backgrounds that I find so very interesting,
    because you can learn so much from them personally.
    I particularly appreciate the professional attitude shown by so many of our translators,
    which makes our projects so much easier to manage

  • "What to say about oneword? Just one word simply won’t cut it:
    professional; friendly; communicative; helpful; and most of all –
    favourite, as in "my favourite agency"."

Our customers rely on our ISO 17100-compliant processes and the project management team relies on an effective knowledge management strategy. This is why quality management is of such critical importance for oneword. I think it's great that the company's management and our own teams give us the freedom and support we need to keep driving forward with our efforts to improve every aspect of our work."
