The first known translator
Did you know that St Jerome is considered to be the patron saint of translators, and that today, September 30th is International Translation Day?
Jerome was chosen to represent translators since he was the first to work on translating the Bible from Hebrew into Latin, towards the end of the 4th Century AD.
Looking for the most natural way to produce your translations? Why didn’t you say so?
When two of our favorite software tools team up to boost efficiency, we can only approve! And we keep clapping … with both hands.
In a free 1-hour webinar, Jim Wardell, an experienced translator and memoQ user will show you how to use Dragon NaturallySpeaking with memoQ to achieve hands-free translations.
You may already know that memoQ is the translation environment adopted and championed by Kevrenn for many years, and Dragon NaturallySpeaking is the #1 solution for speech recognition.
But, did you know that Kevrenn has been involved in bringing these two fantastic tools to the rest of the world?
Gardez le sourire !
Il y a des signes qui ne trompent pas : les valises ont retrouvé leur place au grenier, et les cartables sont ressortis du placard… C’est sûr, l’heure de la rentrée a sonné.
Entre chasse aux ultimes fournitures scolaires et retour des petits déjeuners avalés en quatrième vitesse, il n’est pas toujours facile de garder le moral…
Tis the season…
As an American living in Europe for many years, I’ve gradually learned about a lot of differences with what I thought everyone did for Christmas. I assumed all our customs came from here. So shouldn’t they be the same as ours?
Well it turns out that it’s not the case. France has many different Christmas traditions, as do neighboring countries. In France, the “Père Noël” — as Santa Claus is known here — is taller and thinner than my idea of a rotund jolly Santa Claus, and he carries a wicker basket leading a donkey, and not a bag of gifts. The very first year I spent in France, my husband’s grandfather dressed up as the famous figure and handed out candy to kids in the small city where they lived. It was nothing like visiting Santa Claus in the mall. Unfortunately, there’s a few too many American Santa Clauses making their way to France nowadays.
So what about the mythical St Nicolas in other countries in Europe?
Kevrenn just celebrated 16 years of activity.
When we started in 1997, the web was still considered a novelty by many businesses. We launched our original web site in the first few days of activity… but we still had to install a fax line in order to communicate with some of our clients.
Today, the web is only a part of corporate presence online. The advent of social networking has changed the playing field providing so many more ways to share and organize information.
We hope that you’ll find the new format of our web site easier to navigate. This new version is connected to our other platforms in order to better communicate with you. We want to provide easy access to our information, when you need it and where you like it.
Let’s take advantage of these new communication channels to work more efficiently together and boost our international ventures. Please take look and let us know what you think. Or just click on any of the links below and share us with your friends and colleagues. Follow Kevrenn on LinkedIn or Like us on Facebook to keep in touch with our news.
Of course, we haven’t intentionally left out our French and German readers. Those versions will be online soon.
