We are excited to introduce the newest members to our team. They have joined us a few months ago, and by now they have become an integral part of Language Experts Group. We feel very lucky to be working with these four experts as they bring their interestingly varied experiences and talents to our group. Please join me in welcoming the girls: Récsi, Kinga, Niki and Yoko!
We all know that translation conferences are great events for learning, sharing information, making business, meeting new colleagues and also for having fun. Since the new year has just started, this is a great time to plan which conferences and other language industry events we would like to visit this year.
Once again it is time to add to our series of interviews, in which we present new staff members, because new people have recently joined the project management and DTP teams. The first "victim" is Ráhel Németh, a junior project manager, and we asked her about office life, her hobbies and her plans.
International Translation Day was first established by the International Federation of Translators. The date, September 30th was chosen, because it is also the feast day of St. Jerome, patron saint of translators, who was the first person to translate the Bible into Latin.
ITD is also a celebration. The celebration of every professional who help making the world a smaller place. One form of this celebration would be joining a translation-related event held near your residence or even online.
In June we learned the great news that the 71th Session of the United Nations General Assembly declared 30 September to be UN International Translation Day. The theme for this year’s ITD is going to be Translation and Diversity, so this is certainly going to be a great day to wake up to.
