    Segment 1 - Expats Have Translation Needs Too!


    When people think about translation services, the first thing that usually comes to mind is global businesses and brands that have conquered the international landscape.  No matter where you go in the world, I bet you will find at least 10 people with an IPhone – with displays in the local language.  That’s a good thing for tourists and travelers who seek comfort in the familiarity of home brands abroad.  What about the person who just lives…not a tourist, but an expat or an immigrant living in another country?

Welcome 2016! So what’s your New Year Resolution? How about learning a new language?

I mean really embracing a new language... Yes, of course every New Year, we start with the ambitious endeavour of bettering oneself, with a New Year’s resolution to be healthier, smarter, richer, nicer, calmer, happier, etc. but somehow, by year end – that initiative seems to fade away...

International Translation Agency and WAGGGS

It’s been a while since I’ve written the last blog segment.
