Dear clients, linguist and friends,

The TransLingua staff wishes all of you good health, prosperity and good fortune in the Year of the Pig!

 

各位客户,翻译者与伙伴们,

Translingua全体同仁祝您身体健康,事业发达,猪年大吉!

 

Dear clients, linguists, and friends,

 

This holiday season we would like to thank all of you for your continued support, cooperation and friendship. Thanks to your contribution, TransLingua continues to bridge cultural gaps, bring people together, and facilitate international communication.

 

On this occasion, we would like to share one of the highlights of our year. This fall we learned about U Pass It On, a non-profit organization located in Hartsville, South Carolina. Based on the observation that many young people in the area have not received enough nurturing and education at home or at school, and as a result do not have the necessary life and job skills to thrive, the founders of U Pass It On decided to fill this void.

 

Their mission is to help individuals from the Midlands of South Carolina and surrounding areas to acquire the necessary life and job skills, so that they can have a better life. U Pass It On has developed a unique Job Development Program providing a variety of skill training services, including life skills development, employment readiness training, job skills training, job placement, entrepreneurial training, as well as mentoring and counseling. They actively work with government entities, business owners and manufacturers to prepare job seekers for employment or business ownership.

TransLingua has recently partnered with U Pass It On, donating its translation services to facilitate communication with the Spanish-speaking population in South Carolina in need of job training services. We are also happy to announce that we are making a holiday donation to U Pass It On in order to support its efforts to improve young people’s lives, no matter their background, culture or language.

 

In this spirit, all of us at TransLingua wish you a happy holiday season and a safe, healthy, and prosperous 2019!

In Italy, Carnival is celebrated throughout the whole country from north to south, the most famous celebrations being held in Venice and Viareggio. It has its deep roots in Ancient Greece and Rome, and today it is celebrated in each region with its own slight variations with regard to costumes and typical foods. Depending on when Easter falls each year, it starts one week before the beginning of Lent and ends on Ash Wednesday.

Carnival is a festivity that is loved and celebrated by many people in Italy, in particular by kids, who, during Carnival week, love to get together with friends to walk through their towns, flaunting their costumes and playing jokes on each other.

 

During the week of Carnival, different sweets are on the menus of many families, especially during the so called Martedì and Giovedì Grasso (Mardi Gras): for example, there are the frittole, delicious, fried small balls made of flour, eggs, butter and sugar, filled with raisins, or (even better!) whipped cream. Other traditional desserts include crostoli, or chiacchiere: flat, rectangular sweets covered in confectioner’s sugar, or stuffed with apricot jam.

 

On Sunday, many towns organize the Carnival parade, which is known as La Sfilata dei Carri (the Carnival float parade), in which people parade dressed in Carnival costumes, ranging from the most traditional Venetian masks inspired by the Commedia dell’Arte, such as Arlecchino, Pulcinella, Pierrot, Balanzone etc., to much more original and modern ones. At the end of the parade, the best float wins a prize which usually includes money and lots of mouth-watering Carnival sweets and drinks!

AWARD WINNING TRANSLATION SERVICES

The votes are in… the New York legal community has expressed its opinion in the 2017 New York Law Journal Survey and has ranked TransLingua among the

About the NYLJ Best Of Award

The annual New York Law Journal “Best Of” Award recognizes the vendors that New York lawyers and firm administrators turn to first to keep their lives on track. The voting is conducted via online ballot, which consists of several dozen categories, including technology, accounting, insurance, financial services, litigation support, education, recruiting/staffing, public relations and hospitality. This year a sampling of firms was listed on the official online ballot, but voters were also given the option of writing in any firms of their own choice.  Because of the overwhelming response, the NYLJ Best Of has become a permanent, must-have resource for New York’s legal professionals.

About TransLingua

TransLingua was founded in 1984 in New York City. Its purpose was to provide language training and translation services to government agencies and private businesses.  TransLingua has expanded in size and reach over the past 30 years. In 2000 its young, dynamic project management team took over from the retired founders. In 2005 TransLingua broadened its client base through the acquisition of Translation Company of America (TCA), and in 2006 became the official translation partner of the French Institute Alliance Française (fiaf) in New York. Finally, in 2008, the company extended its geographical reach by joining forces with Language Matters in Boulder, Colorado. This growth has allowedTransLingua to modernize and streamline its operations and, as a result, offer a more extensive range of foreign language services in the U.S. and abroad.
