It’s the first day in our new office! And, true to form, we celebrated in style.
On Friday 26 October, we had the pleasure of being joined by SDL, a multinational professional translation services and software company, along with many other industry colleagues for the inauguration of our new office.
The whole Tatutrad team was honoured to welcome Nadege and José Blanco, from SDL, who chose our office opening to host their well-known SDL Roadshow.
During this promotional event, they presented the new features and capabilities of the new version of SDL Studio: SDL Studio 2019.
This essential tool for translation professionals continues to deliver innovations in every single update.
What’s the main change in SDL Studio 2019, you ask? The optimisation.
With the new Help button, SDL lets you access any feature you may need by simply typing in what you’re looking for. This handy, direct link to all the features of this famous translation software gives you agility and autonomy and, most importantly, it saves you time, something quite highly valued by translators.
Numerous colleagues from the sector attended the workshop which took place from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m.
Well-known entities from the sector, such as the Higher Institute of Linguistic Studies and Translation (ISTRAD), and the translation company, CBLingua, attended the event, as well as a large number of professional translators, friends and, above all, colleagues.
At the start, all of the attendees were given the famous Tatutrad tote bag, along with a company pen and folder to take all the notes they wanted during the workshop.
There was a break halfway through the four-hour SDL workshop in which everyone enjoyed the delicious catering service by Dani Machado Eventos(@danielmachadoeventos).
Tea, coffee, carrot cake, red velvet cake and a variety of savoury snacks recharged everyone’s batteries on what was a very rainy day.
Karen Gajate (@karengajatephotographer), a professional photographer who takes the official photos for Tatutrad, was also there to capture one of the most important moments for our translation company.
In short, a get together with friends where, as well as sharing anecdotes and some bouts of despair as a result of last minute projects, we could finally solve more than one of the headaches that come with using SDL Studio.
So, once again, a big thank you to Nadege and José!
And now for the most important part. Do you want to see our new office?
First up, the new spaces in our new office.
“Air” and “Earth” are the two main rooms at Tatutrad.
“Earth”, decorated with hanging gardens and our Velvet Guadalquivir mural, is where you’ll find the main hub of Tatutrad: the production team. In nature, the earth is the only immovable element, offering the other elements solidity, strength and support.
The earth defines our production team to a T: tenacious, stable, persevering and consistent. In short, excellent doers, producers and managers who are capable of working in any setting.
The second space, the “Air” room, is decorated with a blue mural in which our artist friend Raptore (@elraptoer) has painted a map of the world in white depicting various cities visited by the Tatutrad team, and white lamps in the shape of a cloud.
Well, it’s ethereal nature adds a sense of creativity, excitement and kindness which, together with the strategies drawn up in the “Air” room, allow us to come up with highly innovative ideas for the company.
A perfect space for Tatutrad’s salespeople and creative minds.
Production and innovation split between two different spaces, but connected by team work and the passion shared by all the members of Tatutrad.
We hope that combining these two spaces, as well as the characteristics of each of the elements, with expertise and passion for teamwork will make for ideal and optimal performance.
Many thanks to all those who made our inauguration a success. Thanks to Nadege and José for choosing Tatutrad as the venue to present the SDL Roadshow in Seville. Thanks to ISTRAD, CBLingua, Pablo de Olavide University and the University of Cordoba for accompanying us once again on our adventures. Thanks to all the professional translators and friends who braved the rain to be with us. Thanks, Karen, once again for letting us enjoy the art that you create with your camera. And finally, thanks to Dani Machado Eventos for the delicious spread that we enjoyed.
Who’s up for enjoying a sensory adventure?
We’re waiting for you here at Tatutrad!
