So much stuff has been happening in inwhatlanguage in the last months that I have hardly had the chance to write a blog post just for the simple pleasure of writing lately. With the recent additions of two new members to the inwhatlanguage core team, Brian Palmer and Sondra Creps, iwl’s change of offices, our Christmas campaign to help those in need and, well, our little review on the goals reached in 2013 and the challenges we face for 2014, there has been more than plenty to keep the blog bursting with exciting news.
Now that things are starting to settle down again, I think it’s time to sit back for a bit and just think about what all of this really means for every one of us, the employees, clients and the wide net of friends of inwhatlanguage. We are walking ever forwards in such an amazing adventure!
inwhatlanguage started out as a small company that had the quality of its translations as its flag to stay afloat in the wild ocean of the translation industry. And now we are growing so much, and so fast! We receive wonderful requests from both new clients and new linguists practically every day, the projects we take on are gradually becoming bigger and more complex. The degree of responsibility is reaching peaks that we could hardly imagine before, and so is the degree of satisfaction.
Our linguists are always so ready and reliable, it is truly a blessing to be able to count on such wonderful people. They might be physically far away, but thanks to iwl’s business formula and modern technologies, we are as close as a family.
And there is no rational explanation as to why even the newest members of the team are so quick to “get” this work dynamic, and are so easily “infected” with the willingness and the friendliness that iwl is known for. My best guess is that everybody can just “feel” that pride, that excitement that can only come from a young company that has basically gotten up from the ground on its own, with the talents of each and every one of its employees, and whose hard work is rewarded not only financially, but also with the kind feedback from our dear clients.
And, of course, the fact that we work with something as fluid and changing as languages must have something to do with it, as well. We all in inwhatlanguage share a passion for languages, and being able to learn something new about them every day, receiving new, exciting projects to put our language skills into action and being able to give our all, to push and prove ourselves, is simply awesome. The best investment of our time. And so much fun!
So, to finish with my little rambling, I’ll add a picture that our dear CEO Cody Broderick sent to the team today, and that actually inspired all of these ideas.
No need for further words 🙂
