Motto: Miracles happen when you leave your comfort zone. Challenge yourself!

Manca Kočevar


Project Manager and Sales Representative

Manca displayed a great deal of precision, conscientiousness and reliability, as well as efficiency and kindness as our administrative assistant in all daily communication. Her great interest in project management, which proved to be her strong suit, next to her drive to look after our regular as well as new partners and to form a strong bond with them, finally took shape in her new work position.

Motto: Work joyfully and peacefully, knowing that right thoughts and right efforts will inevitably bring about right results. (J. Allen)

Jure Velikonja


Project Manager and Business Secretary

Jure’s passion for words stems primarily from his love of literature, which has accompanied him since childhood, while his interest in languages and other cultures led him to the study of his favourite one – English. He believes that the key to happiness and success is constant learning and self-betterment, both personally and professionally.

Motto: Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking. (William Butler Yeats)

Kristina Nastran

Project Manager

As an avid reader since she was little, Kristina knew her life would be defined by language. She has thus dedicated herself to the study of languages and their cultures, while also continually striving towards discovering new ones. She believes that thinking outside the box is as important as finding innovative and effective solutions inside the box and she brings the two together in her role as a translation project manager.

Motto: The presence of those seeking the truth is infinitely to be preferred to the presence of those who think they’ve found it. (Terry Pratchett)

TRANSLATORS

We have created a strong team of reliable experts and base our cooperation on principles of
mutual respect, fair payment and a proper professional attitude.

Working with Alamma is a pleasure. There is a real sense of colleagues in a team, which can be a challenge with linguists in several different countries, yet it works. Alamma takes personal and professional development seriously, always looking for ways to improve, and this results in a high-quality product.
(K. S. W.)

I have been translating and proofreading for you since 2010. I really appreciate your professionalism and your way of communication with the staff. Just continue in the same spirit!

(M. G.)

I consider our collaboration as one of my most successful ones. The reason is the brilliant team working organisation, where each part of the chain has a real opportunity to realise their abilities. And their unique combination gives an excellent result. From my viewpoint, this is a good way to reliability and excellence.

(D. P.)
Alamma team are highly efficient. I can see that you do care, both about your clients and freelancers. I truly enjoy cooperating with you.
(E. Y.)

My collaboration as a reviser with Alamma started in 2014. I really appreciate the very detailed description of translation/revision projects, sensible deadlines, constant support of friendly project managers, thorough approach to preparing high quality translations by double-checking before delivery and of course prompt payments. Special thanks to Pija Kovač, Anka Leskovšek and Manca Kočevar for the support! I’m glad to work with you and be a part of your team.

(Y. T.)

Many times I wondered why it is I work with much greater joy and enthusiasm for Alamma than for other companies. Love for my work? Sure, but – there must be more to it. Then, one day I came across a great quote which was the answer to my question. It reads: “When a person feels appreciated for their infinite and absolute value, you can then communicate about any issue and you will have their cooperation and respect.”

(G. D.)

I have been successfully working with Alamma translation agency as a translator in various expertise fields for years. I value their reliability and professionalism, which reflects in the fact that they work with highly qualified translators, making my work as a reviser a great joy. With such efficient and transparent approach it’s a win-win situation for all involved: employees, translators, revisers, but most of all the clients, who can rely on excellent quality.

(K. S.)

I never have and I am sure I never will regret my decision to work with Alamma translation agency. Personally, I appreciate most that you stick to your end of the bargain. The greatest benefits of working with you are short payment deadlines, which you strictly abide by, good rates and availability for all possible questions or instructions.

(A. F.)

I have been successfully cooperating with Alamma translation agency for several years. Our cooperation is marked by excellent and friendly communication, coordination and assistance with projects and regular payment. The deadlines are always reasonable too.

(S. V.)

I can only express compliments in regards to every aspect of our cooperation.

(P. D.)

Your organisation and willingness to assist translators are why I have enjoyed our collaboration so far and look forward to new, interesting assignments.

(E. D. D.)

Alamma is a company with very open-minded project managers and has a very professional attitude to project processing. I like collaborating with you a lot. Thanks!
