Scriptor Dokumentations Service GmbH has been active in the documentation business since 1986 - originally as an internal documentation division of Bertelsmann Software GmbH. This division created manuals and training documentation and conducted training courses. It also provided telephone support for book sales software.


Based on these experiences, Thesaurus GmbH was then founded with a fairly wide base of existing services and relocated to Schloss Neuhaus near Paderborn, Germany. A neighbouring firm, Heinz Nixdorf AG, was a key customer at this location. Documentation services had by then grown to include both software and hardware.


Shortly thereafter, following a management buy-out in 1990, Scriptor Dokumentations Service GmbH was born in Bielefeld.


Since our debut at CeBit in 1988, Scriptor has been a leader in the development of understandable operation instructions. Back in 1988, there were less than five independent providers in all of Germany that created technical documentation. The sector simply did not exist as it does now. From the beginning we have been convinced of the importance and tremendous potential of technical documentation. And it is this conviction which has helped us grow in the market.


Our beliefs are founded on technical competence, international orientation and personalized customer focus. Our established customers from the machine building, electrical engineering and medical technology sectors have long counted on our focus and expertise.


Our experienced team works with speed, precision and focus. As a complete service provider, Scriptor offers design services, standard-compliant manuals and help systems, coherent translations, communicative graphics, animation, and management of print and publication services. Our service portfolio enables you to stay focussed on your key competence.
