Monica Machado Translation Services wishes you a Happy New Year
In spite of the challenges the world downturn has imposed on us, 2016 was in general a very good year for our English – Portuguese translation services. We continued working hard to thrive and expand and we did so well.
In return for all the hard work and dedication to each project, the majority of our clients continue to return for our services year after year. Thank you to you all.
We will keep working hard to make sure your documentation and deadline requirements continue to be met by our translation services.
For 2017 I wish you all a year full of peace, work and good health.
Feliz Ano Novo – Happy New Year!
2016 was year full of challenges. We have diversified into new areas of business and increased our client portfolio in legal areas, offering certified translation for companies all over the world. We have also raised our profile locally, meeting existing businesses in Norfolk, UK, and participating in several Norfolk Chamber of Commerce events.
Monica Machado Translation Services has also been present at a couple of events sponsored by the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce and the Portuguese Embassy in London, raising awareness of the importance of translation for businesses.
We participated in pro-bono projects as part of our CSR plan, working for United Nations projects in Guinea-Bissau, and other NGOs in Angola.
Monica Machado was also invited to translate another children’s book from Portuguese to English. This project, which began some years ago, already allowed Monica Machado to translate a few titles in this same environmental collection. This latest book, to be used to teach children a little more about elephants, their importance in the ecosystem and the risks these species face in the World and particularly in Africa, was beautifully presented with fantastic drawings and a touching story. This book collection is even more important because its stories are based on true facts and tell children the real dangers wild animals face.
Also, this year the Tusk Foundation awarded the Wildlife Ranger Award to Manuel Sacaia, a humble Angolan shepherd who has helped protect the Angolan Sable Antelope for almost half a century. We are really proud and excited that this prize was awarded to a project on which we have been working pro-bono since 2013.
Professionally we have continued the usual CPD programme, and Monica Machado has completed the ITI CPD programme which included 33.5 hours of training.
