Who are we ?



ITS Traductions, for quality of the written word!

The translation agency was founded in Geneva in 1967 by Mr Louis Kushner. At that time, several multinationals had just set up in Geneva and in French-speaking Switzerland and were trying to translate many documents from English into national languages and vice versa.

Since 1997, the translation office has been run by Mr Urs Blass and his team of real professionals, with extensive experience in all management areas. For customers in German-speaking Switzerland, we also have a branch in Zurich.
