The Across Systems GmbH

People, Management, Company Guidelines

Across Systems GmbH is the manufacturer of the Across Language Server, a market-leading software platform for all corporate language resources and translation processes. Located in the Karlsruhe technology belt, the company headquarters in Karlsbad manages the activities of Across around the globe.

If there is any one secret of success, it lies in the ability to get the other person's point of view.

Henry Ford

Within the scope of its product development and market activities, Across cooperates with international educational institutions and associations and is coached by three advisory boards: the Corporate Advisory Board, the LSP Advisory Board, and the Translators’ Advisory Board. The advisory board members represent renowned technology companies and language service providers who also use an Across Language Server for their translation management. The members of the Translators‘ Advisory Board are freelance translators with extended knowledge in various CAT tools.

Across combines people with diverse qualifications, experiences, and opinions to a strong team. The individual strengths of every team member contribute to the overall success, regardless of the capacity in which the person serves – as a highly qualified IT expert, a programmer, an administrative employee, or an experienced translator. Across offers suitable challenges for professional newcomers and seasoned industry experts alike.

Good Advice with an Advisory Board

We want to align our software solutions as closely as possible with the specific needs of our users. Therefore, we cooperate closely with three boards within the scope of the product development: the Corporate Advisory Board, the LSP Advisory Board and the Translators’ Advisory Board. The meetings, which are held twice a year, afford us the opportunity to exchange practical experience and discuss market trends.

All boards serve the following purposes:

  • To engage in exchange of information and to serve as a mouthpiece on behalf of Across users
  • To counsel the Across management team in its medium-term strategic product planning
  • To let the team participate in their experience, desires, and visions in connection with Across
