It’s time to submit your entries for the 2018 Language Industry Summit Awards, which are designed to recognise and celebrate excellence in the sector.
Members can submit nominations for a new range of categories for this year’s prestigious Awards ceremony. They cover ATC Company of the Year; ATC Project Manager of the Year; ATC Translator of the Year and ATC Partner of the Year.
Nominations of up to 500 words can be made online by visiting https://atc.org.uk/events/language-industry-summit/the-atc-language-industry-awards/, with a closing deadline of Friday 31st August.
Ruth Partington, Chair of the ATC Organising Committee said: “The judges will be looking for entries which have not only excelled in their business, but also those who have worked for the betterment of the overall language sector as well as the ATC.
“We’re looking forward to receiving nominations from our global membership, and then celebrating the success stories together when we present the Awards as one of the highlights of our 2018 Language Industry Summit”.
The ATC Company of the Year will not only recognise a member company which has excelled in terms of growth, recruitment, marketing and profile, but has also benefited the overall language industry as well as other ATC members.
Similarly, the new category of ATC Partner of the Year will be awarded to an ATC partner who has been demonstrably supportive of the language sector, the ATC and its members.
Exceptional freelance translators and interpreters working with ATC members will be celebrated with the ATC Translator of the Year award, while the ATC Project Manager of the Year will reward an individual or team which has best met or surpassed its targets and objectives.
Shortlisted applicants will be announced in early September, with the winners being unveiled during our Gala Dinner and Awards Evening in Cardiff on 20th September.
Among the 2017 award winners was Tatiana Poliakova, Translation Manager with Intonation, a language service company based in Fareham, who was named Project Manager of the Year for her exceptional dedication to her work, involving running a busy team of nine project managers as well as managing her own accounts.
She said: “The award felt like a huge accomplishment as it was great to know my work was appreciated and acknowledged by my peers. It was also recognition of the excellent service provided by the whole team.”
This year’s awards are sponsored by ATC Technology Partner SDL, and SDL Marketing Director Sue Young said: “Working with industry association partners is part of SDL’s ongoing commitment to the translation industry. We are working closely with the ATC to support their members and the ATC Technology Partner membership has provided us with an additional way to communicate and support our existing customers, it also offers a route for new and future users to find information about SDL Trados Studio.”
