Principles of work

We respect the Code of Professional Conduct of the German "Bundesverband der Dolmetscher und Übersetzer e.V. (BDÜ).

Concretely, this means the following:
1. Your trust in us is our first priority. Discretion and data security are guaranteed. If desired, documents can be sent in encrypted format.

2. As a rule, we employ only native speakers of the target language for translations. The translators with whom we work have many years of translation experience and only work in their areas of expertise. Such expertise often also includes a degree in a technical or scientific field.

3. Punctuality, i.e. completing your order by the agreed-upon deadline is of utmost importance to us.

4. Terminology consistency: During the translation process, terminology is carefully researched and used consistently.

5. The text is proofread after the translation has been done. We check the accuracy and integrity of the translation as well as the industry-specific phrasing.

6. If commissioned at the time the order is placed, a cross-read will be done by another translator.

Our main objective is satisfied customers. That is why communicating with you is important!


Laasdorf, a community situated in the south of the Saale-Holzland district (Thuringia), is located in the valley of the lower Roda tributary, about 15 km from the center of the university town of Jena.

The first mention of Laasdorf in 1323 is in conjunction with the Roda Monastery.

The Lobdeburgs, an aristocratic family of Frankish origin, were the first nobles to rule over this region starting in 1166. They were the successors of the Burgau and Elsterberg lines. However, archeological findings in the vicinity attest to even earlier settlements.
The first documented mention of Laasdorf was in connection with the estate of the Roda Monastery around 1323. After the monastery was abolished, the courts of Laasdorf belonged to the administrative offices of Leuchtenburg and Roda.
In 1333 the purchase of the Laasdorf mill by the convent is mentioned. This mill was operated as a cutting and oil mill and was used as a porcelain factory into the 20th century. And this is where the office of tecword Professional Translations is located.

Today the village has about 520 inhabitants. There is no (printed) village newspaper, but there is a library and fun village life: a regular women’s kaffeeklatsch under the old linden tree, a Carnival club and Mardi Gras events, fireworks and maypole dances, walks through the meadows, traditional harvest festivities with dancing, children’s clothing market and Christmas parties, bonfires, exhibits about the village’s history and a whole lot of fun.

Many companies have settled in this region, including:

CBV Blechverarbeitung GmbH
ISS Innovative Schweiß- und Schneidtechnik GmbH
LTL Veranstaltungstechnik
Lüdtke GmbH
Landesverband Thüringer Rinderzüchter e.G. Vermarktungszentrum
