Since founding the company in 1993, Christian Schwendy has been responsible for the development of Gemino, and has turned it into what it is today – an independent language service provider employing 43 full-time staff. Above all, independence means remaining flexible. And being flexible enables us to find solutions that go far beyond the translation of a single assignment, and optimize the entire translation process in your company. Our flexibility is infectious.

During this period, he was responsible for the development and industry-wide exchange of expertise in the field of language services.
