The general conception about German, is that it is an aggressive and harsh sounding language. Here is an example of the saying “I love you” in various languages… yes, in this case, the Germans sound a bit, hmmmm, shall we say angry… Enjoy!

We are thrilled to announce that we have expanded into Europe and have opened our head office for Europe in Frankfurt, Germany.
Being in the geographical heart of Europe enables us to be available locally for our European clients. We can operate on the same hours and see you much more often, too!
This step also improves our understanding of European markets and cultures, which in turn benefits the quality of our products and services.
If you wish to contact the European office, please call +49 (0)69 509 56 5629. Our office is situated in the Messeturm building in Frankfurt’s business district. Stay tuned for our German-language Twitter and LinkedIn pages!
Wir freuen uns auf eine erfolgreiche Zusammenarbeit!
Hi everyone! We’re really excited to be welcoming a couple new investors to Qordoba’s team – folks who believe in our mission and are just as excited as us re: technology and localization.
We’ve raised $1.5M from MENA Venture Investments and Silicon Oasis Ventures, to be invested in product development and team expansion. Raising money is just the beginning of the road: for us, this is about taking our product, service and customer satisfaction to the next level.
Read about our announcement on TechCrunch here.
And congrats team!
Working at a localization technology startup is pretty cool. The projects that come through our office are soooo diverse: from contracts to press releases to personal letters—one heartfelt plea from a grandmother to her granddaughter made a translator and an editor cry—we see it all. Most of it we can’t talk about it, but where we can, we like to take the opportunity to highlight our team’s capabilities.
A case study we have recently pulled together is about The Dubai Mall, the largest shopping destination in the world, which very quickly has become one of the most-visited attractions globally. Read the case study here!
And stay tuned for more case studies.
Today we’ve announced that we’ve obtained our ISO-9001 certification, making us the FIRST online language services company in greater MENA to be ISO certified!
In a nutshell, an ISO-9001 certification means that our quality assurance system meets a set of very rigorous standards developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) for service industries.
Our technology tools and workflow are the heart of our quality assurance system: making sure that across all language pairs and types of documents, our clients’ projects are consistent, high quality and accurate.
Congrats to the whole Qordoba team!
We’ve debuted our company video today!
