translations4u.de was founded in October 1999 by Matthias
Marquardt, Managing Director.
At that time the company's main office was located in Heidelberg, Germany - home of the
world-renowned Ruprecht-Karls University. Matthias Marquardt is one of its graduates: the diploma grade "Akademisch geprüfter
Übersetzer" was conferred on him in November 2000.
In the company's first year, i.e. before the Mr Marquardt's graduation,
the business activities concentrated on bringing together qualified translators and clients on commission fee basis. The contacts
to Irish translators that had been established while Mr Marquardt studied in Dublin (9 months) at Dublin City University have
been the cornerstone of this business.
In October 2001 translations4u.de moved to Weimar, Germany in order to be closer
to our clients. By that time translations4u.de - in association with various outsourced translators - focused on all kinds
of technical translations and documentation as well as on the translation of official (state) documents.
is to provide translations of the highest quality that make our client feel good, for: "Translating is our passion."
