MTM’s European founders and partners met during the 80s of the previous century. During
those days, they already worked together in close collaboration on international translation
projects for global companies such as IBM. In 1994,
they decided to bundle their strengths and individual
expertise to form one centralized project management
office: MTM. MTM is now managed and owned by its
Dutch co-founders. MTM can serve the international
client from its Dutch office. The office is a local
production site as well as a project management hub.
We expect the client to outsource more work to
translation providers who are able to offer maximum
flexibility and added value at a competitive price. We
are ready to face this challenge. We represent two decades of translation and localization
experience and are able to convert this knowledge into practical and relevant solutions.
