W-T celebrates World Environment Day

World Environment Day was started in 1972 by the United Nations General Assembly, and is commemorated every year on the 5th of June. The aim is to increase awareness of environmental issues on a global scale, and to promote and encourage action that can be taken to safeguard the planet’s future. At Web-Translations, we take our commitment to the environment seriously. Of the staff in our Leeds headquarters, 30% travel to work by bus 30% travel to work by train 40% walk to work (or run if they are a bit late!) This totals 100% ! We also have permanent staff who telework, and every year we work with hundreds of freelance linguists from around the globe – most of whom work from home. Technology allows us to collaborate virtually, reducing our reliance on fossil fuels for transportation.

Originally from the East Riding of Yorkshire, I graduated from the University of Leeds in 2011 with an MA in Applied Translation Studies, having received a BA Hons (2:1) in French and German from the University of Hull in 2011. I also hold a Certificate of Higher Education in English Language and Linguistics from the University of Leeds and 4 A-Levels. During my undergraduate studies, I participated in the University of Hull’s Year Abroad programme, living in Osnabrück, Germany and Lyon, France. In addition to improving my linguistic competence, it also greatly […]
