About comtexto

Our history

We have experienced a great deal in the 44 years of our existence and have always adapted to the needs of our customers. We have nevertheless always remained true to two principles: we focus exclusively on the Swiss national languages and we endeavour to achieve the highest possible quality.

Our 1,700 or so Swiss customers particularly appreciate this unique selling point because with our texts, they are always guaranteed to speak the language of their own customers.
