January Newsletter

2021 is now well under way and it's fair to say it's not exactly the start we would have liked but we remain positive and we look forward to better days to come.
Whilst the economic and health conditions remain volatile and uncertain for the time being, the one thing we know for sure is how important our mental wellbeing is. So we will continue to share with you news related not only to our industry and our projects but also how to stay healthy mentally and physically.
As we look at how the translation industry is changing, a new year also brings new resolutions, so it's time to plan ahead, as we give you a glimpse of what lies ahead and what to look forward to this year.
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to a flourishing partnership with our loyal and new followers, clients and suppliers in 2021!
