About us

Meet the TAIA team!

Our origins

cofounders Marko and Matija

Matija and Marko are both language enthusiasts and sailors by heart, so it’s only right they first met on a sailing trip. They instantly hit it off and began thinking about starting a company together.

Marko is a en economist and an experienced entrepreneur while Matija is a graduate in Chinese language and culture but a developer by heart.

After building a successful language education centre they soon realized their clients require translation services as well.

And this it how TAIA was created.

Technology is part of our DNA

TAIA technology in our DNA

Our founders soon realized there are many solutions for companies in search of translation services, but many of them outdated and none of them a fully integrated, one-stop-shop for all your translation needs.

Traditional language service providers have not changed their processes much in recent years, so we took it upon ourselves to change this, by adopting the most modern translation technology and thus providing our clients with:

  • an unprecedented level of transparency,
  • data security and above all,
  • more efficient and faster translation services.

Introducing TAIA - your one stop AI assistant for translations

After two years in research and development TAIA now helps companies and individuals from around the world to translate and localize their content faster and more efficiently than ever before.

Combining the efficiency of neural language networks with our expert team of professional translators in a seamless platform with little to no human interaction, your next translation project can be handled in minutes and delivered in record time.

Automation allows us to reduce time and costs but also to ensure your translation is accurate and of highest quality.

Our Vision

TAIA is lovingly built and maintained by:

CEO Marko Hozjan
Marko Hozjan
CEO & Cofounder

Marko is the heart and soul of TAIA. He leads the team through thick and thin and always makes sure that our work environment is fun.

He spends his free time with his family, if possible on a boat, where they create lifetime memories.

TAIA about us cofounder and head of development Matija
Matija Kovač
Development Manager & Cofounder

Matija is the development father of TAIA, eternally torn between computer work and working with people.

He loves tough challenges, where his resourcefulness and dedication come to the fore.

He’s proud of his family, but is an experienced entrepreneur and leader at the same time. Ideally he spends his free time sailing full speed ahead in good company.

TAIA Translations back end developer Miha Babic
Miha Babič
Back-End Developer

As soon as bugs hear his name, they fear for their life! Miha (aka bug hunter) catches them all, so your experience in our app is as seamless as possible.

He usually works remotely, but when he graces us with his presence in the office, we can’t stop laughing at his one-liners.

TAIA key account manager Marija
Marija Križ
Key Account Manager

You won’t ever catch Marija without a smile on her face! You can’t help but love her positive energy and openness. But when it comes to work she’s determined and always prepared for new mind-boggling challenges.

While she was living in Ireland, she picked up their accent. Although we love the Irish accent, we have to be honest – we can’t understand most of it.

Digital Marketing Assistant

SMALL. LOUD. EFFECTIVE. Just like this description.

Also, don’t feed after midnight.

Head of project management Andrea
Andrea Ambruš
Head of Project Management

A graduate ethnologist and cultural anthropologist is one of the more calm souls of the TAIA team.

With her calm and controlled approach, she is a great attribute in the project management department. Always ready for last-minute projects and design challenges.

Project manager Alenka
Alenka Sever
Project Manager

A student of Spanish and English studies, who has everything under control at all times. No project is too much of a stretch for her, as she is even more resourceful than MacGyver.

She devotes her free time to studying and planning the next traveling destination.

Tanja Sukič is a translator for german, english and slovenian language
Tanja Sukič
Project Manager and Translator

Tanja is a born multitasker. She’s not only delivering high-quality translations, but is also an indispensable part of the project management team. 

She’s always coming up with fresh ideas and that’s why we love having her in our team!

Translator Deja
Deja Hrovatin
Translator

An enthusiast of everything Italian … before she could speak she already communicated with Italian gestures!

Now singing is her main way of communication, consequently she’s the main DJ of the office. Her positive energy brightens even the most Monday-like day.

Translator Janik
Janik Bačič
Translator

Janik is a professional translator who also works as a sarcasm generator, when he’s not yelling at his computer.

As a native speaker of the Prekmurje region he is by far the least understood member of the team. From his dialect we were able to decrypt that he likes to watch football matches in good company and with a good drink in his hand.

Balkan translator Irena
Irena Krunić Stevanović
Translator

Need a translation into one of the Balkan languages? Well, say no more, because Irena is already half way through the translation. 

Irena is the most quiet team member, that’s probably why she’s so darn effective! But when she does break the silence, she’ll have you laughing until you cry.

Translator and proofreader Robert
Robert Filipčič
Translator

Robert is a student of Slovene and English studies and is soon getting his masters degree. He joined our team as a translator and proofreader and has proven his knowledge time and time again!

Although we wondered why he’s so awfully quiet, we soon figured out why … He completes his tasks quickly and very thoroughly. He doesn’t mind helping out wherever he can and that’s why everybody loves working with him.
