How TAIA began
How We Build on Technology to Improve Translations for All
Our Humble Beginning
TAIA’s story started in 2015 when Marko and Matija – founders of the Language Academy with ten branches in Slovenia – realised that existing translation agencies were not fulfilling the needs of the business market.
What was wrong with traditional translations?
Marko and Matija’s language students spoke on the difficulties of finding a modern and reliable translation agency. The industry was characterised by slow responses, insecure file keeping, and questionable accuracy. Simply said, it wasn’t always enough to meet the growing demands of international business in our interconnected society.
Technology is in our DNA
For decades, traditional agencies had not changed their process nor kept up with recent technological breakthroughs. TAIA is determined to change this by adapting the most modern translation technology.
We are determined to build a culture of trust and reliability on our quest to transcend the language barrier.
TAIA's cloud technology protects your privacy
Traditional agencies typically sent documents in non-encrypted, insecure mediums such as email to multiple translators before one would agree to the assignment.
Upon completion, there was no guarantee your files would be securely wiped. You wouldn’t treat your data this recklessly, so why let others?
With our secure cloud infrastructure, your file is only seen by the project manager, the assigned translator, and the assigned reviewer. Your finished translation is automatically deleted shortly after you have retrieved it from our cloud.
Today, we are proud to present you TAIA, a professional translation agency which adapts the efficiency of neural language networks (NLN) and combines it with an expert team of translators ensuring your translation is accurate and of high quality.
We use the best-in-class linguistic technologies.
With technologies such as Machine Translation (MT), Digital Translation Memories (TM), Optical Character Recognition (OCR), a translation of any size is no match for us!
Embedding a full-fledged customer feedback process and integrity in everything we do, you can be sure your document is in good hands.
Providing relief for anyone that translate, especially organizations, while minimising the potential for data breaches in translation work.
To modernise the translation industry and become the most known language service provider in the world.

His working languages include Slovene, English German, Russian and Serbo-Croatian. As the resident native speaker of the Prekmurje dialect, he is by far the least understood member, but is really into football and likes a beer or two after a hard day’s work.
