DCC global is a provider of engineering services specializing in quality-assured software localization for all types of process visualizations in the mechanical and plant engineering industry.
We provide our customers software localization (language switching) in almost all languages from our corporate headquarters in trade fair hub Hanover.
From a preliminary consultation that includes making configuration recommendations for future localization to supporting commissioning of your machines in the target country, we are here to help our customers any time.
We handle language-related issues so you don’t have to. You configure the software, we localize your configuration - so each of us is doing what we do best. To your end clients who speak the target language, the result will look like the configuration was developed for them in the first place. Today, systems featuring our language versions are in use in 50 countries.
We see our customers' trust over the past 20 years as a source of motivation as well as an obligation to continue to be an expert partner for professional software localization.
