New Team Heads and New Entries at Textshuttle

Textshuttle, the Swiss AI specialist for secure, customisable machine translation, announces a new team structure and new entries.


In order to meet the continuous growth of the AI specialist, the team structure at Textshuttle is being expanded and adapted to current needs. Amongst other things, the team will be complemented by a new team structure in the areas of Engineering and Operations.

Florian Schottmann took up his new position as Head of Research on 1 August 2022. He studied business administration and holds a master’s degree in statistics from ETH Zurich. He has been working for Textshuttle for a year, most recently as Research Scientist in the Research and Development department. In his new role, Florian Schottmann will focus his and his team’s efforts on neural machine translation research in order to further enhance the Textshuttle product range and add new features.

Janine Aeberhard, former Translation Technology Specialist, and Nicolas Spring, former Software Engineer, jointly lead the newly formed Quality and Customisation (QNC) team in their new roles as Linguistic Director and Software Engineering Manager respectively. Janine Aeberhard holds a degree in Applied Languages from ZHAW as well as a Master’s degree from the Institute of Computational Linguistics at the University of Zurich. Nicolas Spring also holds a degree from the Institute of Computational Linguistics at the University of Zurich and worked there as a research assistant for several years. The team led by Aeberhard and Spring addresses the high demand for translation quality and ensures the linguistic quality of all language models.

In addition, Mara Bertamini, who joined Textshuttle on 1 July 2022, took over as Translation Technology Specialist on 1 September. In this capacity, she will be the main contact person for customers when it comes to consulting and support from initial contact to the end of the project. She studied Computational Linguistics at the University of Zurich and worked for several years at Swiss Life's Language Services department.

Furthermore, the company will be supported by more experts in all areas in order to continue to do justice to the growing customer base and the implementation of state-of-the-art technologies.
