Our DNA is Technology, SMEs, hidden champions and international tech corporations.

We are a modern language services provider based in Schweinfurt. For more than 75 years, we haven’t only been translating into 50 languages, we’ve also been providing an holistic translation management service: specialist translations, localisation, marketing, transcreation, machine translation, foreign language layout/DTP, glossary/terminology management and in-country reviews, i.e. coordination processes with proofreaders and national subsidiaries.

We are managed as an SME and are an affiliate of the t’works Group. Technology is in our DNA, and our translation services include technical documentation, specialist texts, multilingual websites, contracts, patents as well as marketing documents.

We are certified according to ISO 9001, ISO 17100 and ISO 18587. Face-to-team project management with a dedicated contact person, regular translators for customers and scalable teams are part of our DNA. Our translation management is TMS-supported (memoQ, SDL Studio, …) through our browser-based customer portal – the interface with the customer for enquiries, quotes and tracking projects.


1946 – founded in Schweinfurt by Hanns Enssner

EnssnerZeitgeist Translations GmbH is a language services provider that has been active as a translation agency for SMEs, industry, trade, service providers and public authorities for over 75 years. Hanns Enssner (Dipl.-Ing./England) founded the Enssner translation service in Schweinfurt in 1946.

Due to the company’s proximity to the industry located in Schweinfurt, its focus on technical and scientific translation was already given at a very early stage – over the course of time and with the help of a steadily growing number of translators for all main languages of communication. When the demand for Eastern European languages increased massively at the beginning of the 1990s, the range of services was expanded to include prepress and foreign language typesetting and an in-house graphics department was set up. 1996 – Christian Enssner (Dipl.-Wirtschaftsing./FH) is the third generation to manage the company, merging it with Zeitgeist Marketing und Beratung GmbH to form EnssnerZeitgeist Translations GmbH. The business areas were expanded to include multilingual technical documentation and advertising.

In 2006, EnssnerZeitgeist was one of the first language services providers to be certified according to ISO 9001. Together with Office Manager Kevin Singh, a branch office for DTP and Language Engineering was opened in Chandigarh/India in 2007. Since 2018, EnssnerZeitgeist is a wholly-owned affiliate of the t’works Group with Christian Enssner as Co-Founder and Managing Partner of the Group.


Our expertise
and specialist areas


Approximately 70 in-house linguists and more than 3,000 translators worldwide work for us in over 50 languages. Translators, proofreaders and editors are selected according to their specialist area, knowledge and experience.

Glossary/terminology management
