Transline is one of the largest German translation service providers. The company employs around 150 people at a total of 7 locations and works with around 5,000 specialist translators worldwide. In recent years, Transline has invested heavily in the digitization of its own business model and has developed a leading workflow software that automates process steps. This significantly strengthens its competitive position by enabling a higher and faster processing of customer requests and leading to efficiency enhancements throughout the entire service provision process.
The company operates in an attractive market environment whose structural growth is driven by increasing digitization and globalization. In addition, the market for language services is very fragmented and is therefore subject to strong consolidation pressure. This creates significant growth opportunities via buy-and-build measures designed to acquire new customers and unlock new sectors.
