Oltrans Translation Agency Has Extended Its Membership for the Period 2020 – 2021
Oltrans Translation Agency has been a member of the European Language Industry Association (ELIA) since 2010 and has extended its membership until 2021. Despite the difficulties of 2020, we believe in the need to work together with colleagues from the translation industry in Europe. At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we realized what a tremendous benefit it is to be a part of an organisation, consisting of people with big hearts, open minds and high hopes. In these challenging times, we all gave each other a helping hand and organised online meetings, where we shared what difficulties we were faced with, what mechanisms we implemented to optimise our work, how we overcame problems.
Everybody was ready to offer a piece of advice or give an idea, which turned out to be invaluable support in this unexpected situation. We shared everything – from difficulties in our communication with clients to the happy moments with our families and our culinary masterpieces. These friendly interactions with people who are thousands of miles away, but who share the same fears and professional challenges, turned out to be a genuine pleasure.
Despite the crisis, we successfully completed the projects we had started and maintained professional relations with our partners – other ELIA members. Concessions needed to be and were made on both sides with regards to the situation. We would like to thank all members for their support. It is in times of difficulty that one appreciates the value of being part of something bigger. We are happy to renew our membership and we are looking forward ELIA’s future events, held online.
