and welcome to the December newsletter! With 2022 coming to a close, it is time to reflect not only on this last month but also on the year we leave behind.
The world has changed tremendously. The post-Covid era brought travelling and face-to-face work back. And the world wasn't as ready as we might have hoped.
A war was intensified, supply chains, goods, and energy entered a new unprecedented time of crisis.
Yet translation remains our constant. With demand increasing and decreasing at times, market needs shifted and client requirements varied. New hybrid models of working and multilayered services became a reality.
Flexibility, adaptability and tenacity were much required throughout the year.
At Greek to Me, we say goodbye to 2022 in a relaxed, calm, and productive pace which we welcome and appreciate.
So here is our last newsletter for 2022
December was a slower and more quiet month compared to November. We worked on 15,000 words translated or edited. Projects included marketing adaptations, certified legal translations, and voice coaching actors in recording studios during TV campaign productions. Most of the work facilitates legal proceedings, and helps push product sales in the Greek-speaking markets. We also translated and submitted our last children's book for 2022. We're so excited to see these on shelves soon and share them with you.
A year in numbers With 2022 coming to an end, we always enjoy looking back at the year and what it meant for Greek to Me Translations. So here is our year in some numbers that mean a lot to us and our clients.
