There are roughly 100 specialists at gds GmbH working towards your success at six locations:

The gds head office is located in Sassenberg – opposite technotrans SE, an internationally active company and service provider for refrigeration technology, whose “Technical Documentation” department led to the establishment of gds as an independent subsidiary.

This is from where the Technical Documentation and CE Marking Process Support departments operate, among others. Moreover, Sassenberg is where the editorial system docuglobe and the author support program authordesk are being continuously advanced and from where they are distributed. The Support department is also located here.

Additional products and services sales locations with editorial and consulting specialists available on-site are Schwäbisch Hall, for the Southern German region, Halle, for Eastern Germany, and Regensdorf for Switzerland.

Berlin is our competence center for XML technologies. These include, among others, the XML editorial system XR and ARC-Desk, the portal for reviewing and approval processes. Additionally Berlin is responsible for the area of Content Delivery with the easybrowse product within gds Group.

Specialised translation and linguistic services are delivered across the globe from gds Sprachenwelt GmbH, in Hünfeld, Eastern Hesse.

gds GmbH

The old imperial and salt boiling town of Schwäbisch Hall lies on the banks of the Kocher. It preserves the Middle Ages, with a multitude of staircases, wooden bridges and winding alleys. An up-and-coming cultural city and real small town pearl of Baden-Wuerttemberg.

Being one of the largest communities of the Zurich lowlands and located on the scenically very attractive Katzensee, Regensdorf extends across the entire width of the Furttal [the name of a valley region in Switzerland between Laegern and Altberg] – a healthy blend of rural tranquility and vibrant suburbia.

Our values

Simply. Everything. Better.

Our corporate culture and the values to which we have committed and which determine our daily actions form the basis for the longstanding success and steady growth of the company. This applies both to interactions within the team and with our customers and partners.



Only a corporate culture characterized by transparency and trust paves the way to success and sound growth. For this reason, we attach great importance to fair, respectful and open interaction.



Innovation increases customer benefit but also calls for learning and recombining. This is what we do on a daily basis to ensure that our products and services are always state-of-the-art.


We react to individual or changing circumstances of our customers and adapt our products to their requirements, not vice versa.



We utilize and develop state-of-the-art technologies. We apply our expertise to set industry-specific benchmarks. We listen to our customers before we make recommendations, and we always keep what we promise.



Giving consideration to the interests and requirements of our employees, customers and partners in all our actions and decisions is one of our key commitments.
