We love Queen Square so much that when we needed to move office, we simply moved to the other side of the square! Together with our neighbours, Rebuilding Society, we sponsored the addition of new rose beds in each corner of the square. Rebuilding Society is a peer-to-business lending platform that connects UK businesses looking for a loan with individuals prepared to lend their own money. In addition to improving the view for al fresco business meetings, hopefully the office will smell nice when the flowers are in full bloom!

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.

I am a recent graduate of languages and translation, and was looking for a career either within the translation field or within administration/project management, in particular with an international outlook. It was for that reason that I applied for the position as it matched perfectly with my aspirations, as well as with my skills and qualifications. 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 […]
