A Glance into our History

Usa Translations, About Us, A Glance into our History

USA TRANSLATIONS is a division of WordExpress, which was founded by Manfred Bauer in Pacific Palisades in 1993 as a small translation bureau, focusing on German and other European languages. From its inception, the operation developed a reputation for exceptional performance in each and every project.

The company embarked on a traditional, client-oriented approach that gained the trust of an increasing number of satisfied, loyal clients. These clients appreciated the attention to detail and the passion for linguistic craftsmanship. Outstanding quality became the hallmark of the company.

WordExpress grew rapidly, moved into large offices in Santa Monica in 1997, and incorporated in 1999 as a California Corporation.

The reputation for linguistic excellence lead to an increasing demand for expert language services. The company outgrew its original structure and human, technical and linguistic resources had to be expanded to keep up with the increasing success. At that point of time it seemed to be practical to create USA TRANSLATIONS as a division of WordExpress Corporation, in order to better attend to the needs of our clientele on a global scale.


USA TRANSLATIONS has become a well-established leader in multilingual communication, featuring a multitude of linguistic services, with clients and associates all over the globe.

Our clients appreciate especially our extensive experience in the industry and the professionalism of our linguists. Always striving for perfection, outstanding quality at reasonable prices continuously being our ultimate goal.
