Specialist Translation/Localization, Editing

Germany is the largest market in Europe. Conversely, in the age of globalisation it is very important for German companies to offer their products all around the world in the local languages. G&U embeds your product seamlessly into the targeted language area.

Our long-time know-how in localisation provides your product with the crucial advantage of the look and feel of a native-language product. In reaching this goal you are actively supported by our DTP department, which brings your corporate identity and your product design in line with the target market’s standards and provides a high-quality and cost-effective product.


DTP and Media Design

For more than 25 years, G&U has provided DTP and media design for its customers. From product documentation and training materials to specialised books and textbooks to Internet presences, G&U has numerous customers in diverse areas of expertise, including e-book production.

G&U offers more than only multi-language DTP services. We are competent in text and author management, standardization of authoring up to and including structured text editing in XML and SGML and layout design. Without being immodest we would like to add that we are more than merely competent – some of our designs even won prizes!



G&U works for a variety of customers: specialist publishing houses, engineering companies, plant manufacturers, industrial enterprises and software producers. In the references section, you will find an excerpt of our customers list and many work samples.

We would like to add your name to that list. Contact us and give us a try!
