Did you know that Linearis was founded back in year 2003? We would like to celebrate our 18th birthday by sharing with you our story and memories of the road so far. It has been marked by a myriad of adventures and triumphs, all of which have allowed us to grow into an internationally recognised company with offices in the Baltic States and China, a broad base of loyal clients, cutting-edge technological solutions and, most importantly, a team of amazing and talented people in our offices, as well as a network of professional partners around the globe.
From humble beginnings in a university dorm to an international company taking two continents by a storm
Voldemārs Brēdiķis, the founder and board member of Linearis , knew that he wanted to be an entrepreneur well before he graduated. While studying at Ventspils University College, Voldemārs discovered a passion for language and technology, and he used his social skills to make friends and acquaintances with students from the Faculty of Translation Studies, so the decision to start a translation office was simply the next logical step on his professional path. With Linearis, Voldemārs found the perfect way to make full use of his extensive knowledge, bring home the bacon, as well as help large and small companies and organisations move towards their goals.
Language services for every situation
During these eighteen years, we have grown to become one of the leading language service providers in the Baltic States. Our clients have come to depend on us for a wide range of language solutions. In addition to solutions, we provide:
- editing and proofreading;
- machine translation and post-editing;
- consecutive interpreting;
- simultaneous interpreting;
- notarial certification of translation;
- multimedia translation;
- desktop publishing.
Our line of business demands us to constantly be on the lookout for current developments and innovations in our industry, adapting and integrating the latest solutions in the way we operate. Good old manual translation has now been enriched by the use of innovative translation programmes as well as machine translation and post-editing tools, and is even tapping into the exciting features provided by artificial intelligence. Passion for technology and linguistic excellence allow us to offer the most innovative translation technologies on the market, adapting them to the individual needs of every client and the specificity of each and every project we work on. The recent global challenges have done nothing but force us to be even more steadfast and persevering, and by adapting to the demands of the new reality, we have developed a new service – remote simultaneous interpretation.
