The family-owned company AD VERBUM (2002) is one of the leading translation and localization companies in Northern Europe providing translations in over 150 languages. Its motto is "One message. One voice."

The founders of AD VERBUM are graduates of the University of Latvia Faculty of Theology: "We are grateful to our faculty for the capacity to look at life more broadly, safely and to see it more colourfully, which was acquired during the studies".

Languages, their translation and application to different cultures are part of the company's daily work. Theological studies have enriched the understanding of the meaning of the word in all its manifestations, helping the company to grow and evolve.
