What can translators and interpreters do about climate change?

Climate change is a global crisis that affects us all. No one can avoid its impact, although some people are able to protect themselves better against it.

Each of us, however, has the possibility to help curb climate change, both as individuals and in business.

Kate Stansfield is an English freelance translator, copy-editor and proofreader who is passionate about fighting climate change. In a webinar organized by the ITI association, entitled ”What can translators and interpreters do about climate change?”, she lists concrete actions that translators, interpreters and companies engaged in the industry can take to fight it/the crisis.

Support for Ukrainian refugees

We were happy to be able to do something concrete to support those fleeing the war in Ukraine, by providing Ukrainian translations free of charge for Tavata Global’s service that promotes their employment possibilities in Finland.

The service, offered in cooperation with MTK (Central Union of Agricultural Producers and Forest Owners), both facilitates job-seeking and helps Finnish farms to find seasonal employees.

In response to the crisis, the company wanted to create a version that helps Ukrainian refugees to find jobs in Finland. It is available free of charge for both job seekers and employers during the “Seasonal Work from Finland — Сезонна робота у Фінляндії” project.

Ukrainian translations make the service easier to use and more accessible to Ukrainian users looking for jobs.

 

Season’s Greetings

It’s time to relax and be merry, and our team wishes you happy holidays, and all the best for the New Year 2022!

 

Opening times during the holiday period

Please note that our office will be closed for holidays

on 24 December and 6 January 2022.

At all other times we are open normally, and happy to help you with any enquiries!

 

New postal address

Our team has been working remotely since the pandemic started, and we eventually decided to give up office premises completely.

Instead, we obtained a mutual “remote-working space” for our team, where each of us can go to work alone or together, depending of the situation. So, we will be applying a “hybrid work model” from now on. It only affects our physical location, and in every other aspect our work will continue as usual.

Our new postal addres is: Onnelantie 27 B 22, 15150 Lahti, Finland.

National holiday on 6 December

Please note that our office will be closed for Finland’s Independence Day on 6 December!

We wish everyone a Happy Independence Day, and look forward to serving you again on Tuesday, 7 December.

Our office is open all summer

We are open all summer, and available to serve you throughout the holiday season. However, on 25 June our office will be closed for Midsummer.

Summer holidays will affect our capacity particularly in July, though. Please note this when planning translation orders!

Where possible, it is a good idea to let us know about upcoming urgent requests in advance so that we can book the required resources in good time, and ensure delivery within the desired deadline.

For additional tips on how to get a quote or a translation as quickly and smoothly as possible, check out our ‘Translation Buyer’s Checklist‘.

We wish everyone a happy Midsummer, and a lovely holiday season!

Twenty years of translation and language services

This year marks the 20th anniversary for our company. During our anniversary year we will take a glance at the past, a look to the future, and hope the current restrictions will be eased so that we can celebrate together in the autumn.

When our company was established in December 2001, it was called Maris Translations Oy and had just two employees: founders Jukka Pohjola and Maarit Satukangas-Pohjola. At that time they already had extensive experience in translation, localisation, project management and language technology tools through education and employment in the industry.

Today, the company is known as Maris Multilingual, and it employs a team of translation industry professionals. We all work in close co-operation with an international network of partners from a number of countries around the world. All our staff members have appropriate academic training and solid professional skills. They can manage all stages of a translation project with commitment and competence, from individual translation and proofreading assignments to extensive multilingual translation projects.

Maris Multilingual offers translation services in all major European and Asian languages covering many specialist fields. We have an increasing number of customers in Finland and abroad. We have a translation server, a project management portal and highly efficient operating processes, honed over the years to ensure smooth services and continuously adapted to meet the needs of our customers.

To our customers, we want to be a reliable partner that supports their international operations by supplying professional language services to meet their varying and increasing communication needs. Everything we do is based on our values: commitment, high quality and excellent customer service.

As we approach our 20th anniversary, we would like to thank our loyal customers and partners for their support over the years, enabling us to become the leading provider of multilingual communication services in Lahti.

What is quality in translation work?

It is commonly said that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. There is also room for preference when it comes to assessing translations, because such work always involves a certain amount of creativity and choices.

Different languages describe the world in different ways. When trying to express a thought in another language, often the best that one can achieve is the closest possible correspondence. There is no fully correct or perfect translation of any text, rather the task always involves striking a balance between accurate transmission of meaning and the means of expression available in the target language.
