Ljubica Negovec
Ljubica Negovec

CEO

ALLESPRACHEN

My name is Ljubica Negovec and I was born in a small village in Croatia. My parents and I came to Austria in the late 1970s as a family of migrant workers. Just imagine how difficult this was with a name that – as I have later realised – is beautiful but that sounded really “foreign” back then. However, I knew that, if I occupied myself with Austrian culture and customs, even I – the “foreigners’ child” – could be successful. I am still renowned for my tenacity to this day. Yes, even today, after I have established a successful translation agency that has won 2nd place in the ranking of Austria’s Leading Companies this year. This award is no coincidence for I have intentionally prepared my company for our modern age, an age of pervasive globalisation and digitalisation which makes languages more and more important, no matter in what field of business you are working. Our Translation Excellence 4.0 which we have created in-house provides us with an innovative tool to overcome language-related and cultural boundaries in the area of SEO translation and content marketing, among others, to make sure your foreign customers are able to identify with your texts and products.  I am looking forward to telling you more about this in my lectureJ
