LanguageWire is one of the top 40 language service providers worldwide. We service more than 2,000 clients from offices in Copenhagen, Stockholm, Gothenburg, Oslo, London, Hamburg, Munich, Gdańsk and Kiev.


LanguageWire uses Goodwings for hotel bookings. This means that approximately 5% of what we spend on hotels goes to a charitable project of our choice. We are currently supporting Plan Denmark’s initiative: Empowering Girls Through Education. We believe by using Goodwings we make a positive difference in the world.
