What was the problem?_

PONS Publishing started the business in 1978, having years of experience in developing language-learning materials. They have great knowledge and experience in the field of publishing the materials but they needed extra help to undergo the digital transformation, to keep the current business in shape, and reach out to new potential clients.

What we have done_

nomtek became a partner and has helped them to build the dictionary app from scratch. Since the very beginning of digital history at PONS, nomtek has been developing and maintaining their current applications and became the main development partner. We have been doing business together since 2010!

As a result, we have launched a mobile application that became a flag product and has over 8 million users. Every day it serves millions of users by providing fast and reliable translations in 40 PONS dictionaries and in 36 languages


What we have learned_

Our key learning was leading the digital transformation hand in hand with a well known and respected publisher. We have gathered a very interesting experience in the field of helping our clients to understand the importance of going digital and achieving the KPIs. 

On the other, more technical, grounds we have learned how to build a product that is scalable and can well serve big audiences. Also how to lead the development and maintenance for years, and to guarantee the highest quality and experience for client’s users.
