About us

Who we are

From a tandem
to a team

It happened over 10 years ago, when Agnė Vaičienė and Povilas Miknevičius left their positions as in-house linguists to start their own company – Team of Translators, or TOFT for short.

“Back then, it was just the two of us. We didn’t have any other employees or even a physical office. But what we did have was unwavering professional enthusiasm and a clear vision for our future. This vision was based on two priorities: high quality services and a strong team of professionals,” – says Agnė.

Today, we are proud to say that we have accomplished these goals. A tandem of translation enthusiasts turned into a team of localisation talents, now recognised globally as TOFT International. Based in Vilnius, the forward-thinking capital of Lithuania, we have a tight in-house team of project managers and linguists who are bolstered by our global network of external vendors.

How we work

Delve deeply,

think broadly

Over the years, we have developed best practices to handle our clients’ needs based on a two-vector approach. On one hand, we always delve into the client’s world to understand their product, their message and their brand identity. On the other hand, we never lose sight of the bigger picture, taking into account the target audience, market demand and the potential profitability of the localised content.

The same applies to our workflows – while delivering the highest quality translations, we always maintain a broader perspective of the client’s needs. This allows us to offer added-value localisation management solutions – including market research, content evaluation and adaptation, consultancy and strategy setting – so that the client can actually benefit from the localised content.

How we live

Eager to learn,
ready to share

Born out of professional enthusiasm, TOFT International continues to move forward along this path. While our clients are advancing their products and technologies, our team is keeping up by attending conferences, workshops, trade fairs and similar events in localisation and other industries.

Besides, knowledge is better when it is shared. A few years ago, we started our Networking Dinner campaign to introduce existing and potential clients to various aspects of localisation, share insights among professionals, and tackle localisation challenges, together. 

Social responsibility

Social responsibility

We are passionate not only about professional development but also about making a positive difference in the world. Through volunteering, donations and charity programs, we actively support our local communities and contribute to global causes.

From lending our language skills to those in need to backing vulnerable groups in society, our team members are encouraged to take paid time off for volunteering. This approach ensures we maintain a hands-on commitment to creating a better world.

Our team

Agnė Vaičienė

In my professional journey as the co-founder of TOFT International, two core values shape my path. First, the genuine feedback we receive from clients, confirming how our services help conquer localization challenges and open doors to new markets; second, the dedicated team whose insights and professionalism I appreciate every single day. TOFT means more than just work to me – it represents a lifestyle that never ceases to fascinate.

I really enjoy working at TOFT because it allows me to utilize my creativity and problem-solving skills, providing a sense of fulfillment and accomplishment.

Additionally, the supportive and collaborative work environment fosters positive relationships with colleagues, making each day enjoyable and rewarding.

Grytė Šimkūnaitė

From the moment I joined TOFT, it became a cradle for my professional development. A constant quest for knowledge – I believe that’s what bonds us together, makes us grow and brings the ultimate value to our clients. And of course, a family-like atmosphere, which turns our Vilnius office into a cosy nest of talents.

Agnė Špokaitė

What if I told you there is a place where you have the freedom to take responsibility, freedom to make mistakes and freedom to do better. I feel like TOFT International IS that place and I can be in my element doing the things I love – surrounded by people doing the things they love.

Because Here, People work. Because Here, you are accepted as a Human and valued as one – with your strengths and weakness, your needs, your discoveries, happiness and sadness – in one word, with everything that is called Life. Because Here, you are viewed as a Colleague and as a Person.

Martynas Šilinis

Working at TOFT International is a blast! Colleagues are amazing, partners/clients – an absolute pleasure to work with. Experience and opportunities here are immeasurable.

Povilas Miknevičius

The translation industry keeps changing and evolving with each iteration of CAT technologies. In the past, I have used CAT tools that were merely plugins for Word. I’ve witnessed how they transitioned into standalone solutions. The same happened with machine translation and AI solutions. I enjoy working at TOFT because it helps me learn new things and test the latest solutions as they come out on the market.

Aušrinė Mockevičiūtė

A grammatically correct language is one of the instruments for achieving a success. My main goal while working as a Lithuanian editor at TOFT International is to make our language sound correct, clear and catchy, as this is the main tool to achieve success for us and for our clients.

Jurgita Brasiūnaitė-Rakauskienė

I’ve been a linguist at TOFT International for many years now, almost from its start. I share the company‘s vision, workflow consistency and focus on development. I’m sure we’ll keep moving confidently in this direction for years to come.

Being part of TOFT International is a great opportunity to grow as a professional, to keep up with today’s emerging innovations in localization field, as well as to work in a friendly team, where I feel valued and motivated.
