Professional practices Marketing Language endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.0).
Marketing Language is a translation, text and marketing agency specialising in international communications for technology and science. The agency was founded by Mike Hodshon, holder of an engineering Masters Degree and a post-grad. in business administration. He moved from England to Germany in 1991.

The philosophy behind our translations: Half of a translator's job is understanding the source text. We take pains to understand what the client wishes to express, even where messages are hidden between the lines.

The other half of the job is to express that message in a way that the intended reader will enjoy reading and will understand in full. This is always our goal: interesting, comprehensible text.
