What’s in a name?

LinguaWays embodies different approaches to language. As our logo suggests, there are many different ways of reaching a language goal, whether it involves creating or receiving a flawless translation or mastering a new language. There is no right or wrong way, as long as the final product achieves its objective. The name also stems from Annina’s diverse passion for languages, which started with her first extended stay in the United States at the age of 16 and has remained with her ever since.

Different ways of life, different ways of thinking – different ways of approaching languages. Let LinguaWays help you find yours.
