Learning about translation services

WELLINGTON – Jan. 15, 2014 – Twenty-six people, including entrepreneurs and representatives of various organizations, learned all about the professional translation services provided by Alianco (which means “alliance” and “collaboration”) during two lunch-and-learns in Charlottetown Jan. 14 and Wellington Jan. 15.

Micheline Roy, the executive director of this professional Atlantic Canadian association of certified translators, mainly explained how the Translation Assistance Program works. It covers 75 per cent of translation costs for promotional and work material, for up to $8,000. A few former clients in the room confirmed that the application and translation processes are extremely simple and fast.

The lunch-and-learn was presented by the Wellington Rural Action Centre, RDÉE Prince Edward Island and the Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI.
