The Jungheinrich Group chooses World Translation A/S as their language services provider for the next 3½ years. World Translation wins tender worth DKK 30 million and expands the collaboration with its client. Winning this tender ensures more jobs in Denmark’s largest privately owned language services provider and it is an important part of the company’s future turnover.

Jungheinrich invited tenders for all of its translation and language services requirements in April 2017. Since World Translation had already worked with Jungheinrich over the last ten years, it was invited along with a carefully selected group of companies to bid for the tender. After several rounds of negotiations and presentations, World Translation convinced the successful forklift truck manufacturer to continue and expand its collaboration with them. The agreement includes the provision of translation services, DTP, proofreading, voice-overs, terminology work, automation processes and consultancy services.

Winning the tender means a great deal to World Translation. “We competed against some of the biggest players in the translation industry. That’s why we’re so incredibly proud to have won this tender,” says World Translation CEO, Ib Brandt Jørgensen. “We already work with many major companies, but it is obviously something special to be able to work with a global group of this size, be responsible for all of their translation needs and bring together their divisions in this way.”

With direct sales in 36 countries and partner companies in over 70 countries, Jungheinrich is the third-largest forklift truck manufacturer in the world. Jungheinrich AG’s Category Manager External Services, Severin Nitsch, praises World Translation for being a flexible and reliable partner: “With World Translation, we value in particular the personal and collegial collaboration, their hands-on mentality and their openness to technical innovations. They help us overcome language barriers, so that we can be successful on an international level.” Speaking of the tender, he adds “World Translation were able to stand out because of their comprehensive product portfolio and flexibility with regard to our requirements, and their reasonable prices.”

As a World Translation client, Jungheinrich will enjoy the benefits of many intelligent solutions:

  • A review portal where translations are proofread.
  • A translation API, which works together with SAP.
  • An innovations group, which focusses on dialogue and promotes the exchange and sounding out of ideas.
  • Machine translation.

The agreement applies from 1 October 2017 until the 31 December 2020.

World Translation is a successful Danish company, which provides language services to customers all over the world. Our translation services help Danish and international exporters expand globally and enter into new markets around the world. With over ten years of experience as a language services provider, we are one of the biggest Danish-owned companies in the translation industry.
