About Across Systems

Who We Are and What We Do

Across Systems GmbH

As a dedicated software manufacturer, Across Systems concentrates on smart computer-aided translation and translation management solutions. Apart from the Across Language Server for language service providers and industrial enterprises, we develop the Across Translator Edition for freelance translators. Located in the Karlsruhe technology belt, our head office in Karlsbad manages the activities of Across around the globe.


Since 2005, our product development has focused on the needs and operational practice of our customers. For this purpose, Across collaborates closely with international associations and universities as well as with three advisory boards. The Translators' Advisory Board consists of experienced freelancers who have extensive knowledge of various CAT tools.

Our Team

Across Systems unites people with diverse qualifications, experiences, and opinions in a strong team. The individual strengths of every team member contribute to the overall success, regardless of the capacity in which the person serves – as a highly qualified IT expert, a programmer, an administrative employee, or an experienced translator.


Across is active in various national and international associations. The expert networks and events provide an ideal framework for exchanging experiences and imparting impulses. For us, this also means maintaining proximity to relevant industry topics and direct contact with our partners.
