Experience, language skills
and innovative technologies
Horner Translations specialises in the translation and localisation of technical texts in the fields of technical documentation, marketing and quality management.
Thanks to our profound industry-specific expertise and technical know-how, our knowledge of local markets and our cost-efficient workflows resulting from the use of innovative technologies, we have long since been established as a strategic partner for many well-known companies.
Our strength is our first-class team of more than 150 professional translators, proofreaders, editors and project managers, who are all dedicated to our guiding principle: "Excellence in Translation".
Horner Translations has been a certified member of the Qualitätssprachendienste Deutschland (German Professional Association of Translation Services) since 2001. Its members meet the strictest quality specifications and set the benchmark for outstanding services in the translation industry.
Horner Translations GmbH was founded by Andrea Horner-Siebold in 1978.
The managing director knows the business like the back of her hand: she spent more than ten years working for one of the largest electrical engineering groups in Switzerland as a project manager for industrial facilities in Egypt and South Africa. She is therefore familiar with the problems that foreign-language technical documentation can involve from a customer's point of view.

As well as working in compliance with DIN EN 15038, we are also a certified member of the QSD/EUATC and ATC. Members of these associations undertake to comply with the strictest quality standards in the industry and are the first to find out about innovations, trends and experiences thanks to lively exchanges of ideas and by attending annual conferences.
Having searched high and low for the best in their fields ever since the company was founded 25 years ago, we have successfully put together a top team of translators from Europe and beyond. We are strongly committed to performance-based pay for our translators and opt against cheap labour as a matter of principle, which is also one of the reasons why many of our employees have been working for us for over 15 years now.
