On 1 July 2020, Wieners+Wieners is becoming considerably larger. As a member of the Apostroph Group, the company is merging with two other well-known language service providers, strengthening its portfolio of services for the benefit of all customers.

Ahrensburg near Hamburg, 15 July 2020 – Wieners+Wieners, Burton Van Iersel & Whitney and LÓPEZ-EBRI Fachübersetzungen are joining forces and will operate under Wieners+Wieners GmbH as of 1 July 2020. The locations of the individual companies in Ahrensburg near Hamburg, Bremen and Munich as well as in Berlin and Frankfurt am Main will remain. The merger strengthens the company’s position on the market and, with over 100 permanent members of staff, ensures expansive linguistic expertise across Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
Ulrich Barnewitz, the sole managing partner of this new constellation following the merger, is overjoyed at the development and says:
‘The merger strengthens our core business, enabling us to meet special as well as individual customer requests at a premium level. Our specialist and technical expertise is taken to new heights and our slogan, “Fluent in solutions”, is now truer than ever.’
Wieners+Wieners and the Apostroph Group are the leading providers of premium language services in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
The company translates into over 70 languages, in all subject areas and always to the highest level of quality. There is a particular focus on the security of projects: the IT infrastructure is located in a German data centre. By the end of 2020, the company hopes to be certified according to DIN 27001 for this purpose.
Wieners+Wieners provides solutions from a single source: the portfolio includes not only translations into all languages around the globe, but also services such as iSEO, machine translation with pre- and post-editing, proofreading, desktop publishing and terminology management.
