Our company history

tsd Technik-Sprachendienst GmbH was founded in 1978 by the translator and language consultant Günther Beyer. Back then, the company’s primary focus was on the translation of technical texts.

In 1987, the company was taken over by the Freibott family, who still owns it today.

The management team was expanded as the second generation of the family entered the company in 2009. With the growth of the management team and the expertise this brought into the company, particularly in the area of technological and IT-based solutions, tsd is continuing on stronger than ever! New objectives are defined on an ongoing basis and implemented within the company in order to continuously develop the portfolio of services and drive forward the growth of tsd.

Thanks to the company’s steady growth over recent years and its continuous further development, tsd is able to offer high-quality translations in a variety of language combinations for a broad spectrum of subject areas and text types.

Alongside our head office in Cologne, we also have a national branch office in Berlin in addition to various international offices in the USA, United Kingdom, Spain, France and Brazil, amongst others.
