The client can choose general or business language courses and industry-specific language (law, finance, tourism, sales, etc.), or regular, intensive and conversational courses.

The programmes and levels of knowledge of foreign languages are in line with the recommendation of the Council of Europe on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages

INDIVIDUAL COURSES

Individual courses are designed for businesses users or individuals who do not have the time or the possibility to follow group courses with a predefined weekly schedule and pace. The course dynamics are defined in consultation with the student, taking into account their business commitments. The course curriculum is designed according to the specific needs of the user, defining the objectives in advance. The focus is on business communication and correspondence.

GROUP COURSES

Group courses for companies are fully customized to the needs of the company, the particularities of the industry (commerce, ICT industry) or department (procurement, sales, marketing, finance, human resources). In addition to working on all language skills (listening, reading, writing and speaking), business topics related to a specific branch are also covered. On top of the usual teaching materials, we also use original materials, professional publications and texts and internal documents of the company. By simulating different business situations, meetings, presentations or negotiations, our students will improve their speaking and interpersonal skills and prepare for demanding business situations.

Translation services

We offer written translations of texts on general topics or highly specialized technical texts.

We also provide oral, simultaneous and consecutive interpreting of business meetings, negotiations, trade fairs, seminars, visits to your business partners abroad or any other event for which you need a trustworthy translator.

Our translators travel with you abroad or can provide assistance in solving bureaucratic and administrative procedures in state institutions, ministries, with notaries and attorneys.

Often the translator is a crucial factor in the process of business negotiations because the course of the negotiations depends on their linguistic competence and experience and the ability to understand the spoken and unspoken word, and to convey complex concepts and semantic nuances of speech. The knowledge of customs, habits and culture of a country will contribute to a thorough understanding of the intentions of your interlocutor, and our translators will be of great help in such situations.

Our highly qualified translators with many years of experience translate for you from Italian, English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Slovenian, Czech, Hungarian, Macedonian, Albanian, Turkish, Chinese and Russian languages into Croatian and vice versa.

Translation rates:

In written translations, the basis of calculation is one standard page (1500 characters with spaces). The price of the translation depends on the quantity, type and complexity of the text, as well as the translation turn-around time. Ask for a free offer.

In case of oral interpretation, the duration of the translation service (hour, half day, day or several days) is taken into account, the language from which and to which it is being translated and the type of translation.

Send us a query with relevant information regarding the event for which you need translation services (date, time and venue, the required language combinations, topic, number of participants) and we will provide you with an offer as soon as possible.

Testing of foreign language knowledge of employees or candidates in selection procedures

Our teachers can test foreign language skills of your employees or candidates in selection procedures for positions in your company, placing special emphasis on the needs of the company and the specific requirements of the position for which the candidate is competing.

When as a future employer you want to determine the potential candidate's level of foreign language knowledge, our team of language experts will hold a selection interview in the foreign language and after completing the testing submit a report on the level of knowledge in accordance with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, along with a descriptive assessment of the candidate's knowledge and an evaluation of their language competencies.

By testing oral and written expression, all language skills of a foreign language are checked, the knowledge and understanding of specific vocabulary, as well as coping with everyday and business situations.

Testing can be performed individually or in groups.

What the employer/company will get:

  • Information on the level of knowledge of a foreign language (written and oral expression)
  • Selection interview in a foreign language adapted to your company's activities (technical terms that are essential for the job)
  • Certainty of foreign language knowledge upon hiring
  • Professional impression which your company as an employer leaves in selection interviews that are conducted in a foreign language
  • The ability to improve your candidate's language skills to the desired level (if necessary)
  • Along with foreign language assessment, you can have the potential candidate assessed for a specific job, and have their IT skills evaluated

Court interpreters

A court interpreter is a person appointed by the President of the County or Commercial Court, who is authorized, at the request of the court, a physical or legal entity, to translate written or spoken text from Croatian into a foreign language, from a foreign language into Croatian or from one foreign language to another one for which they are appointed.
