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.
