+49 30 308788 20
Since founding the company in 1993, Christian Schwendy has been responsible for developing Gemino into the company it is today – an independent language service provider employing roughly 30 full-time staff. Above all, this independence allows us to stay flexible. And that means we can find solutions that go far beyond the translation of a single assignment – we can optimize the entire translation process, in fact. Our flexibility is infectious.
Christian Schwendy was a board member of Elia (European Language Industry Association) for many years. In this position, he was responsible for the development and industry-wide exchange of expertise in the field of language services. Until 2017, as vice-president of Elia, he played a decisive role in shaping the strategy and image of the organization. He is now a member of the Elia advisory board.
In his leisure time, Christian Schwendy volunteers with a German NGO (Die Johanniter) and, as a member of the board, actively supported the development of its largest regional association in Bavaria for many years.
Before entering the language service industry, Schwendy studied architecture at the TU in Munich. Christian Schwendy loves sailing, is married and has two children.
