Jason R. Ehlinger-CEO 

Margarita Ehlinger-Vice President

Born to a military family, language and diversified environments have been a common theme throughout his life since childhood. After being in the military himself, he and his wife decided they would open a translation company because the industry was growing rapidly, and the need for translation companies and translators who consistently provide excellent translation, was, and still is in short supply. He graduated from Liberty University with a BS in Multidisciplinary Studies. While living in Germany for over four years. He had the opportunity to be submerged in the language and culture of many different countries. "One of my primary occupations while living in Germany was to foster good relationships between the United States and European countries" Jason said. While there he learned Russian,  and German along with practicing the already known language of Spanish at many different times.   Jason is a visionary and an industry leader, and passionate about fostering complete communication between all the world's languages. "If people around the world can communicate with one another effectively, then the hypothetical boundaries created by borders and languages will no longer exist. Communication is power."  Jason said. TaikaTranslations is 100% committed to meeting the needs of their customers, and will not let them down.

Studied Linguistics at the University of Latvia where she received a BA in Linguistics with a focus on the Finnish language. Because she grew up in Latvia, she was introduced to many languages, and at a young age became proficient in English, Russian, and Latvian. Further studies allowed her the opportunity to become well adapted to many languages including all Slavic and Baltic languages, along with the Finnish language. While becoming an expert in diverse languages and spending much time traveling throughout Europe and Scandinavia, Margarita quickly understood the need to be well educated and even more, well communicated. She lived in various countries with very differing cultures and languages. She spent over a year living in Helsinki and Jyvaskyla, Finland and over five years in Germany living in Berlin, and Kaiserslautern. Along with living in Latvia, and now in the USA, residing in Texas, she has always been keen on learning new ways to help others communicate their message. The translation industry is a vast and ever growing business that will require more and more human effort in to accurately relay their messages to one another, and Margarita for one, is interested in making that happen. "The need for a well established communication network to provide a continuum of excellent services to the translation industry is imminent", Margarita said.
