24technology: Our in-house technology partner

Who we are – and what we do

24technology, which was founded in 2011, is responsible for the IT and software development of the 24translate Group. We work in one of the most exciting technological fields: at the interface between people and machines in the translation sector. We produce innovative software solutions for language services and localisation. 
We are constantly developing, for instance in the area of machine translation. We employ a local development team for this purpose. Our modern office is situated in the heart of Hamburg.

For us, agile working is not just an ambition but reality.

We pursue a shared set of aims and coordinate our priorities company-wide. We use elements from Scrum and Kanban in our teams. These include regular retrospectives, which we use to reflect on our collaboration and our ways of working and to derive measures based on the findings. During review meetings, we set out our progress to the entire Group and get feedback from all parties. Stakeholders are, however, integrated into the agile process even at the development stage. In addition, we cultivate developer-driven dialogue formats, during which we discuss the right choice of programming languages, frameworks and platforms.
