info_outline About

ONTRAM is a web-based Translation Management System (TMS) developed by Andrä Solutions in Germany and marketed primarily in Germany, Austria and Switzerland to enterprise translation buyers. It’s focused on Adobe InDesign connection and enterprise product information management (PIM) systems.

Feature set:

  • Project management suite with a workflow builder
  • Project templates
  • Translation workbench including an in-context editor with a preview (Adobe InDesign, HTML, MS Office, PIM)
  • Reporting and business intelligence based on JasperReports®
  • Connectors to MS Office, content management systems, product information systems

Best for:

The ONTRAM TMS is best suited for enterprise translation teams that work with marketing and technical documentation created with Adobe products, and towards enterprises with PIM systems.


Founded by Sven C. Andrä as Andrä AG in 1999, ONTRAM became available as a commercial product in 2009. In 2016 the company has undergone reorganization and emerged as Andrä Solutions GmbH & Co. KG. While the company ventured into the US market, it scaled back its presence there and remains focused on the German-speaking world at present. Clients include the manufacturer of agricultural engineering equipment CLAAS, developer of waterproof, breathable fabrics W.L. Gore, and manufacturer of power tools Metabo.

In the beginning of 2018, the Andrä group included 45 people, with an estimated turnover under 5 million euros.
