For the second time this year, Melanie Smith was invited to join a panel of twelve alumni at the University of Manchester in order to contribute to its “Meet the Language Graduates” event earlier this month.

Our company is delighted to be in a position to offer advice and guidance to future professionals that extends far beyond the translation industry. After all, the ability to understand two or more languages is a skill that is beneficial in a multitude of circumstances and develops confidence in a variety of situations both socially and in the workplace. We believe that leadership is more than being in charge and managing people; the kind of leadership that separates good leaders from great leaders is the kind that encourages other leaders to grow. Here at Anglicus Translations, we want to take the lead in inspiring others to take pride in learning an additional language and we think it is important to attend as many language events as possible to promote our ideas and share our experiences. We are incredibly grateful to the University of Manchester for offering this vital opportunity not only to the current graduates at the beginning of their careers, but also to us, the professionals, now making a successful living through our love of languages.

Once again, the event was an unmitigated success as the feedback notes:
