Why do bees get all the credit for being so busy? We reckon it’s because people haven’t seen just how busy we’ve been over summer. And anyway, bees can’t translate…
It’s been an extremely busy few weeks at PerMondo, so much so that my fingers are aching as I pound away at the keyboard. We’ve no time to lose, so let’s get straight into the projects that we’ve completed over this past fortnight.
Our first two projects marked a continuation of our long-lasting collaboration with the Research Institute for Waldorf Education. As always for this NGO, we translated three manuscripts from English into Spanish. Ana Vila Ortega translated no less than 77,185 words, and Pamela Tiberi kindly chipped in with a further 4237. We’d like to say a big thank-you to both of our volunteers!
This week, we’ve also provided our friends at Place to B with their first ever French-English translations. The translation of their website (4418 words) was carried out by Harriet Thompson-Ball. And, following our instant success, we’re already discussing a long-term collaboration with this NGO. All credit for this is due to our wonderful volunteers. We don’t like to boast, but PerMondo certainly doesn’t need Viagra to establish a long-lasting partnership.
Únete al Planeta is continuing to roll out new YouTube videos for its dynamic environmental protection campaign. Last week, we translated their second video from Spanish into Catalan, English and French. Our volunteers on this project were Maria Àngels Biarge, Sarah Thomas and Pauline Junca.
Our first ever project with Tercare also involved the translation of the organisation’s website. 1196 words were translated into French and German by Pauline Richer and Beatrice Leuschner, respectively. We’re also pleased to see that the websites are already up and running!
Our teamwork with Fundación La Merced Migraciones is also going from strength to strength at the moment. This is in no small part thanks to Denis Pedro Cuevas Gosalbo for his translation of 2071 words from English to Spanish. We look forward to helping out this organisation more in the near future.
After a small a break in our collaboration with Fundación Adsis, we’ve recently provided them with a translation of 4718 words from Spanish to Basque. Just like with Place to B, we’re especially grateful to our volunteer on this project, Andrea del Pico, as we’ve now been approached for even more translations into Basque.
Our translations of small articles for the World Movement of Christian Workers are still popular. This week, we translated 844 words from French into English. Our helpful translator on this project was Charlotte Smith, and her work was proofread by Thomas McGuinn.
In light of the rising race violence in the USA, Unión Romaní also asked us to translate a short letter to the US ambassador from Spanish into English. We were helped out here by Louisa Devine and Thomas McGuinn.
The final translation that we managed to complete was yet another short article for the Associazione pro Terra Sancta. 320 words were quickly translated from Italian into French and German by Laura Müller and Anaïs Contet.
We’re also grateful to the following translators, who have all translated some interesting articles from English into Spanish for our blog: Ana Carolina Barroso Martínez; Ana López García; Ana Peñuelas Cardo; Andrea Garcia Barranha; Antonio José Díaz González; Beatriz Arguedas Ibáñez; Carolina Funes Andreu; César José Marval; Cristina Sevilla; Danel Ocio Esparza; Daniel Montes Esteban; Daniela Sacks Durán; Irene Almazán Sotillos; Laura Flores; Maria Àngels Biarge; Marina Alonso Fernández; Marina Serrano Miralles; Melisa Laura Díaz; Mireia Álvarez Moros; Paula del Río Manzanas; Rosimel Gómez; Sabina Torres; Sara Vilarelle Paz; Tatiana Pérez Ruiz; and Yolanda Lozano Ramírez de Arellano.
Well, we better get back to work quickly. After all, the bees are catching up with us…
Have a great weekend!
