About us

What’s behind the translation company with the short name? Total commitment to the quality of your texts.


It’s the people that make ACT tick

One of them is Cumali Teknetas. Cumali founded A.C.T. in Mönchengladbach in 1989 as a family operation. The company’s name contains his initials. The “A” was added so that the company would be listed at the beginning of the phone book. Since then, over 30 years have gone by and the agency has grown steadily. We had to move to larger premises five times. Of course, our portfolio of language services and technologies also grew at the same time.

Our philosophy​

We keep the interests and welfare of our clients, vendors and employees firmly in focus. In everything we do. Our business philosophy is based on a passion for outstanding service, a high quality standard for every text that leaves our hands and employees who are enthusiastic about their projects. For us, it’s all about top quality. To meet our own high standards, we base our work on various pillars:

Satisfaction and service

Client satisfaction is always our top priority. As a full-service provider, we offer professional linguistic support to our clients and cater to their individual requirements while maintaining excellent quality standards at all times. In order to be sure we are reaching that bar, we conduct regular surveys of client and supplier satisfaction.

Reliability and personalized service

We work carefully, quickly and flexibly and always deliver projects on time. Our clients, vendors and employees know that they can rely on us. We take a unique approach to every project and seek a tailor-made solution.

Quality and specialist knowledge

We make no exception to the native speaker rule. We work exclusively with experienced, professional translators who specialize in their chosen fields. Our highly qualified in-house team manages our language projects expertly and with a focus on service. Our expertise, our technology and our services are always at the cutting edge of the market. We provide our employees with further training as needed and promote professional development and opportunities for advancement within the company.

Optimization and progress​

We strive for continuous improvement, optimally coordinating our processes so that we can satisfy our clients’ high expectations every time. We take a proactive, dedicated and well-considered approach. Our goal is sustainable growth. Although our main client base is currently in German-speaking countries, we are focusing on expanding our business internationally so that we can support clients everywhere in meeting the linguistic challenges of globalization.

Collaboration and partnership

We believe in long-term relationships with everyone who works with us. We see our role as that of consultants and partners to our clients. For us, fair pricing, prompt payment and fostering an environment of openness towards our vendors are the keys to successful collaboration based on genuine partnership. We want our employees to feel at home at our agency so that they can give our clients the best possible service and, in turn, the best quality. By offering flexible working hours, opportunities to work from home and a good work-life balance, we strive to meet our employees’ increasing needs for flexibility.
