Translation and Consulting Office - a brief history

The Michael Rössner translation and language consulting office was founded in 1980 by Dr. Rössner, who completed his Ph.D. and LL.D. at Vienna University and then became an assistant professor at Vienna University's Department of Romance Languages and its School of Interpreting.

Since that time, Dr. Rössner's agency has translated more than 500,000 pages of predominantly legal and business texts (contracts, laws, expert opinions, pleadings, minutes of meetings, annual reports) inter alia for prominent law firms in Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Liechtenstein.

In 1991, Dr. Rössner was made a full professor at Munich University. In 1994, he was appointed as the translator in charge of translating the press releases of the UN Conference on Human Rights in Vienna.

Since the late 1980s, Dr. Rössner's translation agency had also been providing other language consulting services (such as PR documents in foreign languages, abstracts of foreign texts such as laws or regulations, etc.). After years of steady business growth, Dr. Rössner converted his translation agency into a private company under its present company name LLC (Legal Language Consulting) DDr. Rössner & Co. KG.

In 1998, Austria assumed the Presidency of the Council of the European Union for the first time and the Republic of Austria chose a joint venture of Dr. Rössner's company LLC and the European translating network NetVenture Europe as the official translating partner for the EU Presidency documents.

In 2013, the Luxembourg government entrusted LLC with the translation of a website containing the entirety of that country's labour law regulations.

Thanks to its network of legally competent translators and proofreaders in various European countries and the US and to its three-step quality control model, for 41 years now, LLC DDr. Rössner & Co. KG has - despite the Covid crisis - managed to maintain its position as a leading translation agency for legal texts in the German-speaking world.

A success story spanning more than 4 decades
