Capital Language Solutions is the brainchild of Richard Mayda and Sebastian Taylor, two linguists, teachers and translators who worked together at International House Berlin PROLOG (later ESL-PROLOG Berlin) for more than a decade and set up their own company to better serve German companies’ communication needs.

Sebastian Taylor...

… was Director of Studies, running the English department at International House Berlin – PROLOG in Berlin-Schöneberg for 11 years. He was also EUROLTA Master Trainer, project manager and teacher trainer on the EUROLTA Teacher Training Certificate course, set up in conjunction with Berlin’s Senatsverwaltung für Bildung, Jugend und Wissenschaft.

My time at PROLOG was rewarding, fruitful and laid the foundations for the company we have built up as Capital Language Solutions. The experience I gained as Director of Studies has proved invaluable: training and developing teachers, designing curricula, helping and supporting students, liaising with corporate clients — and that's barely scratching the surface! Add my years working as a German-English translator, primarily working within the real estate, corporate and economics sectors, and it's clear why Capital Language Solutions was the natural next step.

Richard Mayda...

… has been teaching English to employees of German companies for more than 20 years. He has worked within an incredible range of industries and sectors in that time, including marketing, law, telecommunications, insurance and tourism. Having studied Marketing, he went on to combine his passion for communication with his love of technology and became SEO and Social Media Manager at International House Berlin PROLOG.

Even when we were setting up the company, I always said that, ``Capital Language Solutions is not a start-up, it's a carry-on.`` I am just as excited about helping clients craft their message, improve their language skills and develop their cross-cultural understanding today as I was at the very beginning. I also really value the fact that our company is founded on a philosophy of customer service, establishing long-term relationships and working together with our clients in partnership.
