Our History

"I speak five languages, one day, a friend asked me to take a look at a translation. I went through it and honestly, I was shocked to see that the translation did not take into account the cultural aspects of the target language at all...I thought to myself, well, if it happens to one of my friends, it can happen to anyone!

I knew that I could make a difference by choosing the right words.

That's why I decided to create the company. I started at home, hiring a few translators, and as Powerling began to grow, I ensured that the company remained modern, efficient, and always able to provide our clients with accurate translations that respect the cultural context of the target language.My goal is still the same: to help businesses succeed by providing them with the best multilingual services possible."

Our values

We are entirely dedicated to our clients, always ready to listen and to give our best to make each project a success. Keeping our word is for us an essential condition for the relationship of trust that we maintain with our clients, our partners and our employees.

"Make the world your playground" is one of our favorite mantras. At Powerling we have all kept our childlike spirit and we put our inventiveness at the service of your brand to make it shine all over the world. Always curious and looking for new adventures, we imagine innovative solutions to push the limits of what is possible.

We have always been a family business and our growth has not led us to forget the importance of cultivating a climate of caring, listening and mutual support. Each team member is part of the Powerling family and evolves in this dynamic and stimulating environment without unwelcome competition.

For both our staff and our partner translators, diversity is a valuable asset that we cultivate. The culture, experience and sensibility of each of them allows us to make a difference and produce truly authentic content. We are proud of our talented team, which we pamper with the best working conditions (see our CSR commitments).

In 25 years, we have become one of the world's top 100 language service providers and we are not ready to stop there. This is the result of hard work and excellence, but today our standards go far beyond that. It also means taking part in a more fair and sustainable world. This is why we have made many commitments in this direction and are waiting for the B Corp certification.
