The Lingvafix story

Lingvafix is owned and run by us, Rainer Ahlvik and Lilian Åstrand-Ahlvik. Rainer started the company already in 1992. After having had Lingvafix as more or less a side-line for many years, Rainer decided in 2010 to become a full-time entrepreneur. The next big change happened in the spring of 2019 when Lilian joined the business.

We love our job – and you can feel it!

Lingvafix has the passion and flexibility of a small agency that can provide a fast and personal service. At the same time, we are a full service agency, which means our customers can get the whole project done in one place. Our services are extremely versatile and we have experience from a number of different subject areas. Compelling texts, beautiful pictures and accurate translations communicated on an attractive and responsive website is everyday life for us.

Lingvafix is located in Vaasa, but we work with customers all over Finland and also globally. When needed, we hire supplementary resources such as other professional communicators or people with complementary skills, for example translators of other languages or other specialists.

Startia’s partner organisation

Lingvafix has since the spring of 2021 been a member of the Startia region enterprise agency’s network of partner organisations who are experts in their own field and they offer their expertise to Startia’s clients.
