Today’s export trade and the exchange of know-how among different countries require a high standard of linguistic communication. Glossima & Wehrheim’s team is here to undertake any translation project and to consistently support your every venture. Our translators in the fields of science and technology are selected on the basis of their knowledge and skills, not only in translation, but also in the different fields of science and technology. For example, translations in the field of electric energy are assigned to electrical engineers / translators with the relevant professional experience.
