We Are idioma

Newton

Living in Santos, Brazil, the leading port in Latin America, makes me kind of a World Citizen: ships coming and going made me eager to discover about other peoples. Learning languages was a goal, and translating is a natural consequence.

Noa

If I had to pick the most rewarding aspect of translating it would be knowing that our work helps to break down frontiers and facilitate the building of international relationships.

Mircea

Translation is what I do for a living—and idioma is helping a lot with that—and writing fiction is what I also do for a living that transcends the here and now.

Agnieszka

In a world filled with words, I am trying to find the proper ones, which could explain to my inquisitive daughter all its mysteries in as many languages as I master.

Suna

38 year-old translator from Denmark. I love my 4 children and have a huge passion for languages, translation and soccer. Honesty, ambition and humour are very important values to me, and as a person I would describe myself as based upon those.

Irene

A happy Canadian camper that is guilty of all things Canadian: says thank you way too many times and thinks steak served with maple syrup is completely normal!

Enjoying an endless summer riding my bicycle in southern Italy... :)

Translation in a long dry season like this is not always comfortable, but working with idioma is always exciting and fun!

Miha

Translating... you can do it anywhere! I just moved to Paris and it is awesome. And you never know where I will be in two years, but you can always reach me by email ;)

Ángel

Translatin´!! I love it !! Gimme more translations!! I can never get enough!!

Renata

When translating I keep my brain trained, with kitesurfing I keep my body fit, and my family and good food make me always happy.

Ana Teodora

"If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart." - Nelson Mandela

Ratka

The Danube river that cuts Belgrade into halves accommodates numerous barges turned into floating cafes called “splavs”. I’m fortunate to be living near one of those, so I often take my laptop, order a frappe and translate for idioma.

Edgar

After a thousands words done, time for running

Karolina

Such a dreadful weather. Wish I could stay at home and translate something!

Anja

Berlin is just the perfect place to be for me... Fascinating, lively, international, and a million things to do! When I am not translating for idioma, I meet up with different language tandems to have a coffee and talk in English, French, Spanish... and of course German!

William

Cleaning out the wrong words from a translation, this might be a good idea :)

Helen

It is sunny at last after a long time of cloudy days; I am also in a happy mood after a long time of sadness and depression…Too many things happened recently…anyway, life has to go on and life is so beautiful… I love my family and love my work.

Marita Eriksen

I have always loved learning new languages, and I received my first 500-page book in English for Christmas when I was 10 years old. My enthusiasm for languages has only increased since then. Between my Japanese studies at university, I enjoy my English-to-Norwegian translation work for idioma.

Maja

A walk on the beach, a tango lesson, having coffee with my friends, spend some time outdoors absorbing all the beauty around me ... and an idioma translation at the end of the day :))))

​Imre

I have studied translation in Budapest Business School to be able to meet the highest quality standards and chose swimming to be fit enough for the workloads.

Diego

You usually find me translating, reading a book or watching stand-up comedy (either on my computer or in a comedy club somewhere in Madrid).

Waiting for the Summer to come to Auckland... Nice beaches to visit and just enjoy the Big Blue Sea...

I have been translating for more than 6 years

I wish I would have a chance to translate the secret language of our universe. For now, at least let’s translate those into Turkish!

Blazej

Just finished simultaneous interpreting at another technical conference! Finally I can focus on the next captivating translation assignment for IDIOMA. Helping people communicate across languages has always been my passion, and that is what still gives me a kick after 13 years in this business.

Urgent Translation Projects

If you need fast delivery, we offer Express translation with delivery within 4 hours (CET) for projects up to 200 source words with no minimum fees. For smaller orders up to 1,000 words, we guarantee Next-Day delivery. For large urgent projects, we can switch to Team Mode where multiple translators work on the same assignment and share resources to reduce the delivery term.

Our shift-based coordination system and 24/7 availability of our translation ordering platform make idioma® a perfect choice for overseas clients in different time zones, allowing them to order translation projects during their day, and let our European production center process the assignments overnight.

NOTE! Because all translation projects are managed from our European production center, the delivery terms are calculated based on Central European Time (CET).

Post-Editing of Machine Translation Output (MTPE)

For technical translation, idioma® has since several years been using machine-assisted translation to speed up delivery and offer competitive rates. While machine output is not reliable, we have implemented a post-editing process that like our translation services also relies on one native professional translator editing the MT output and another native professional translator reviewing the result. In 2017, we have achieved certification according to the ISO 18587:2017 post-editing standard for this service level. Depending on the documents involved, the MT option with human post-editing is only suitable for major languages and specific fields where style and fluency are not as important as impeccable terminology. This workflow generally enables us to deliver faster and with a lower pricetag.
If you are interested in the MTPE service, a good start is to have a well-maintained translation memory plus a good glossary at hand. Just contact us and we will have a customized solution for you.
