• Didzis Grauss
    HEAD OF DEVELOPMENT

    Grown and shaped by the translation industry. With first steps taken as a translator and interpreter, moving to project management and translation company expansion operations, Didzis has been an integral part of every step of the translation company success story. With an emphasis on overseas sales, Didzis’s main goal is to put the IdeaText brand on the map as a solid translation industry player, respected by clients and linguists. Also, a huge lover of guitars, sometimes getting too carried away with collecting them, rather than actually playing them.

     

               

  • Ivars Lazdiņš
    HEAD OF FINANCE

    A degree in German translation and interpreting combined with an MBA in business administration, Ivars has obtained a unique and desirable combination of skills specifically tailored to the translation management industry. With great success in Germany based sales, Ivars is a strong example of “measure twice, cut once” mentality. With experience of over 10 years in the industry, his extreme attention to detail is unparalleled. We have a great suspicion that “Marvel” might be Ivars’s official religion.

  • Anna Pelēkzirne
    HEAD OF MARKETING

    Another child of the translation industry. Getting her first start as a vendor manager, Anna has vigorously chased her goal of becoming a marketing guru and social media expert for the translation industry. Anna has an amazing ability of creating stuff from thin air. We are not sure how she does it, but we do not question it. A huge lover of animals, owner of three dogs, Anna tries to spend every free moment she has escaping to locations that are much closer to the sun than Riga.

           

  • Elvita Pūķe-Barbier
    CEO

    A perfect storm of energy and responsibility. With a university degree in translation and interpreting, Elvita was sure about having her own company from a very early age. This confidence is rooted in her passion towards the industry with over 10 years of experience in several management positions in different translation companies. Elvita’s strength lies in being a strong example to IdeaText’s employees, leading by example and making sure IdeaText is always at its best. Unusual traits for a complete punk rock fan and travel addict.

               

  • Līva Vucina
    PROJECT MANAGER

    IdeaText’s own spark of energy. Fresh out of university with a degree in technical translation, Līva embodies dedication and energy in her work. Do not be misguided by the smile, as most of her free time is spent in Jiu-Jitsu lessons.

               

  • Robert Neil
    PROJECT MANAGER, UNITED STATES

    IdeaText’s resident foreigner, who has been with the company from the ground level. With a background in translation, Robert’s late evenings and unusual working hours have made sure our overseas clients are always serviced to the highest level. While spending most of his mornings sleeping, Robert finds time to run a marathon every now and then.

     

  • Ģirts Osis
    PROJECT MANAGER, EUROPE

    IdeaText’s customer success manager with a solid record of keeping our European clients happy and content. Ģirts comes from a marketing background, therefore he is no stranger to business language and exciting puns. A passionate fan of cinema, Ģirts is always up to speed with what is currently worth watching.

     

  • Olaf
    BRANCH MANAGER

    Olaf is a very important and welcome addition to IdeaText’s team. While not being too busy managing the company’s (or any other) branches, Olaf enjoys a stroll around the office premises, making sure all the flowers and plants are properly sniffed, and, of course providing the very important chewing of the squeaky toys. Feel free to reach out to Olaf for snack suggestions, stress relief and belly rubs.
