German term or phrase: von je her
Konsequente Marktorientierung, exzellente Produktqualität und Innovationsfreude sind von je her die Stärken der Firma.
Any ideas on this little phrase? And any ideas on Innovationsfreude would also be appreciated.
Alpine
always; enthusiasm to innovate
Explanation:
Following the K.I.S.S. principle...
"...have always been the strengths of the company."
If you want to stress the "je" you could also use "ever", maybe you could use "since forever" or "ever since", but those are more colloquial.
As for "Innovationsfreude" I suggest "enthusiasm to innovate" as the more literal "joy" doesn't fit the German meaning; so, the whole sentence could read:
"Consistent market orientation, excellent product quality, and an enthusiasm to innovate have always been the strengths of the company."

Cheerio,
Dierk
