In support of a good cause
08 May 2016 – trans|k supports Ride 4 Women with English web texts
Initiated by gynaecologist Dr. René Laky, Ride 4 Women aim so increase awareness of womens' cancers and their treatment possibilities. In cooperation with charity Österreichische Krebshilfe, donations are collected to help support affected women.
Each year, a cycle race through Europe is held to raise awareness of issues surrounding ovarian, cervical, uterine and vaginal cancer. This year's tour is the third and started on 1 May in Vienna. It spans 1883 kilometres through Austria, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Greece before arriving in Istanbul in Turkey two weeks later.
trans|k provided the English translation of the initiative's website on a pro bono basis. We are pleased to support this exceptional project, thereby helping the initiative to achieve its aims also abroad.

First exams passed with flying colours

Since September 2015, Antonia Zangger-Kreuzer, who joined trans|k in 2014, is studying translation at German academy AKAD. Following the successful completion of her first wo exams – German Language and Englisch for Professional Purposes – with grade A she also passed her third exam, in German Studies, with flying colours.
New Staff, New Service – trans|k is Expanding
05 May 2014 – With new team member Antonia Zangger trans|k has expanded its services into translation in the field of art and cultural history and now also offers a consulting service tailored to small companies.
Earlier this year Antonia Zangger joined trans|k. An active performing artist and dramaturg, she is responsible at trans|k for the field of art and cultural history. The addition also means that work can now be reviewed in-house, which helps reduce both turnaround times and costs and ensure a consistently high standard of translation.
One of the tasks of a translation service provider is to help customers optimize their foreign-language documentation process. Because planning ahead helps avoid problems later on, trans|k now offers consulting independently of its translation service. The new service is aimed mainly at smaller companies taking their first steps towards international sales and marketing activities.
The new company website provides information about these new services as well as trans|k’s traditional field of technical translation.
