GTU was founded by former Technical Writer, Project Manager and Freelance Translator Veit Guenther in 2012 to help Language Services Providers worldwide succeed with their supply chain for the German language
Most of our customer relationships go back to a time when Veit was still a freelancer. In response to increasing demand, he began building an in-house team in order to handle the rising volume of translations into German.
The idea was quite simple: we wanted to give our clients the opportunity to collaborate with a provider that works like a single freelancer, but has the capacity of many freelancers.
Our technology stack includes the latest translation tools, collaboration software and antivirus application. We run daily incremental backups to protect against ransomware attacks. Our offices are connected through an enterprise-grade VPN solution.
It’s nice to have technology, however, it’s even better if you actually use it daily and consistently.
This became obvious during the 2020 COVID-19 crisis where our technology setup enabled us to work from home immediately.
We will continue to invest in the technology that is right for GTU.
