We are one team. Come and experience the team spirit!
Abbreviations are part and parcel of our everyday lives. That is why we generally refer to ourselves as team WT.
Our large, new offices in Tilst, Denmark, offer plenty of space in both a physical and a metaphorical sense. We love meeting up for a chat by the coffee machine or having a quick game of table football when we need to stretch our legs.
We genuinely enjoy one another’s company, and we regularly arrange social events – everything from board game evenings to a company outing to Hamburg.
However, we have also embraced the concept of working from home. So when the day’s logistics have to work (which they must) but there is work to be done (which it must be!), we just work from home. No problem.
We’re always happy to receive unsolicited applications. If you believe that you’re the missing piece of our puzzle, don’t hesitate to drop us a line.
“I look forward to going to work every day. You never know quite what the day will bring, and it’s precisely this variation that I love. I’m delighted that working with languages is such a large part of my working life, and it’s a real treat to be able to bounce ideas off so many colleagues skilled in so many languages.
The social environment is absolutely wonderful ─ we look after one another and have a lot of fun. And it’s understood that everyone has a family at home that deserves time and attention as well.”

“The culture at World Translation is built on appreciating each and every employee for who he or she is.
Both your colleagues and your managers listen to you, and they take you seriously if something’s bothering you. In fact, you’re often asked if everything’s OK – and if it isn’t, you can be sure that a genuine effort will be made to deal with the issue.
This means that you feel included, part of the team, and that who you are and what you do makes a difference to your colleagues.
In the same way, there is plenty of support for your professional development, which means that you can always improve your skills in relevant areas and enjoy your work even more.”

“I’m always learning something new (because there is much more to translation than ‘just’ translating words and sentences). I’m developing my skills in the technology that underpins the translation profession – WT focuses strongly on training and development in all aspects of the work. For instance, I’m about to start a course to improve my German language skills.
I have just great colleagues at WT because WT lays the foundations for excellent camaraderie by organising company trips, the DHL fun run and Friday get-togethers, for example. As a result, lunch breaks in the kitchen are punctuated by great conversations and hearty laughter. An amazing atmosphere. I also appreciate the interaction with our translators and customers; we work really well together.
The excellent working relationship is one of the best things about WT: the way we work so well with each other at the office – there’s always someone there to lend a hand or to bounce ideas off – and with our translators and customers. We have a great team of translators who work hard to deliver top quality.”

“There are a great many good things to say about World Translation as a workplace, but top of my list is the fact that there’s plenty of space. Space to be yourself, both personally and professionally. Space to develop and move up, if you want to. But without any pressure or obligation to do so.
In addition, everyone makes a point of talking decently to and about one another. Everyone should be happy when they come to work – and when they go home at the end of the day – and it makes a world of difference to know that we have one another’s back.
We’re also pretty good at having fun together and enjoying a good laugh! Not only during the working day, but also when we hold company parties, walk or run the DHL Stafetten fun-run together, or take a company trip.”

We go the extra mile. In our work, of course.

It’s our reputation that’s at stake.
