Datawords - International Digital Marketing Powered by Multicultural Technologies.

We see technology from a multicultural point of view, which is why our agency creates and proposes cutting edge solutions and innovations that scale quickly to any market.

We always aim to offer the best multicultural digital experience to our clients, and have acquired several agencies with specific expertise in recent years: Digiprod, an audio-visual production company, Vanksen, a digital strategy company and 87seconds, a creative video agency. In a world driven by disruption, we constantly challenge ourselves to improve our solutions and technology, such as Wezen. We focus both on organic growth and are always on the lookout for interesting acquisitions to complement our existing offering.


Datawords was born out of a vision of communication that transcends all borders to reach the broadest possible audience everywhere across the globe. At the heart of that vision is a mix of technological mastery and communications expertise that drives every aspect of our brand DNA — down to our very name.


Technology may be at the heart of what we do, but people are at the heart of who we are. They are the ones who make Datawords a singular place to work for – and with.

From every corner of the globe, our employees bring not only their local language and culture, but their individual energies, passions and motivations to the job each day. The result is a true melting pot of knowledge, skill and perspective in which solutions are never far away.

As technology advances faster and faster and the world becomes smaller every day, our team is made to change

and grow with the times. Because words and technology are only as meaningful as the people behind them.
