|This sentence, even though it appears rather easy at first, is really sort of a nutcracker. Why? It is true, that according to standard German grammar the commas in connection with "akkusativ" are a big issue. But since this is a marketing text, and marketing texts always kind of "bend" grammar to their needs, I would have flirtet with Thijs's answer. I think that by placing a comma after Unternehmen, somehow the emphasis of the sentence sounds more like you have to be a business, instead of, you want this and that. (<- so much for grammar :-))|
The reason why I have chosen this answer though, is that I don't understand why almost every single translator and colleague of mine thinks that the word "want" should be translated into something different than "wollen". I believe that the imperative nature of "...wollen" should not be diluted by substituting with anstreben or the likes.
Therefore I chose this answer. But, by the way, if could split them up I'd give everyone of you points, for all suggestions are really good.
Thanks for your assistance.
