PerMondo: an initiative based on collaboration and synergy

It has been five years since Mondo Agit began to collaborate with PerMondo on website localisation and translation of texts for not-for-profit organisations. Since then, we have supported associations from all over the world, such as Action Contre la Faim, SOS Children’s Villages, Bezev e.V., CEAR, Club of Rome, Cultural Planet, ELIANT, Fair, Fundación Manantial, Organic Vision, Shelterbox, Welthaus, WWF and many others.

The free translation initiative was launched in 2009 and, with Mondo Agit’s support, it has carried out some 200 free translation projects. In this way, huge numbers of web pages have been translated for a range of associations; as varied in their aims as their geographical location, making it possible for them to spread their message across the world.

European Commission to eliminate the Apostille

The Commission has proposed to scrap the bureaucratic stamps that are currently issued in order for documents to be recognised in other member states of the European Union. This would mean the end of the “Apostille”, a certificate used to authenticate public documents.

The measure would not affect the validity of the content or the motives of the documents themselves; it would simply be a case of getting rid of the tags attached to documents that prove their authenticity.  The aim of this would be to save in translation costs as well as to cut bureaucracy and processing times.

Twelve categories of public documents would be affected by the proposal, including those related to name, marriage or registered partnership, birth and adoption. Also proposed are optional, multilingual forms in all official EU languages.

Escort/Attendant Service for fairs, visits and congresses – “low cost” interpreting

The translation for those who don’t need a professional interpreter

Once again, with the aim of adapting ourselves to the continually changing circumstances of the market, Mondo Agit sets “low cost” prices for the escort or attendant service for fairs, visits and congresses.

Mondo Agit has decided to set this low cost tariff with the prospect of filling a niche in the market to which, until now, it had not devoted much attention. It is not only a case of satisfying the client’s needs that have not been met and taking advantage of a business opportunity, but also offering a good employment opportunity to innumerable young students in the last years of university study and those that have recently graduated, who find themselves facing difficulties entering the job market.Read more
