After several years acting as a mini-SLV based at home, my alter ego started noticing the inconveniences of choosing this way of working. The aspects I previously considered as major advantages had lost some of their shine.
The first subcontracted project was an ad hoc decision when several projects’ deadlines coincided. The assigned translator was my first choice, my best choice and my only available choice.
XTRF is hitting the road for this fall’s conference season. As we pack our suitcases, we share why we find attending conferences so valuable: from meeting our clients and partners face-to-face, to keeping up-to-date with industry trends, exchanging ideas and best practice, and discussing solutions to your business’ challenges.
We’re still reminiscing XTRF Summit, although it’s already over. It was a challenge to organize such a conference for the first time in our company’s history. Our clients have always been encouraging us to organize an event where the clients, partners, and the XTRF team could meet. Encouraged by them, we started planning the Summit.
It was such a pleasure to meet you during the ALC conference in Washington last week. It was a very intense time, filled with meetings with our clients, partners, industry consultants and influencers, and with companies who do not work with us, yet ;-)
It was a cold Friday morning when boarded the plane in Krakow for Malaysia two weeks ago. As I was landing, now Saturday, I saw vast fields of palm trees, which I love so much, and a colorful landscape filled with sunlight. A few hours later, I was swimming in a hotel pool overlooking the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur. It felt so good to be there because back in Central Europe they are still waiting for spring to come.
Demand for XTRF Management System continues growing and we are seeing a significant rise in our North American client base. To effectively manage this increasing need and further improve our services and provide greater value, we recently announced that our HelpDesk now covers both East and West Coast working hours.
For the whole XTRF Team and for me personally, it was a pleasure to be in contact with you throughout the year. Many of you are working with us on a daily basis. Others we met at conferences or had a discussion by phone or chat. Some of you we only met virtually, through webinars or online presentations. Anyway, there were thousands of meetings that filled our days with work, enthusiasm, energy, and fun.
As we approach winter and Christmastime, it’s the perfect time for a summary of our yearly achievements. It was a very intensive, and at the same time, the best year ever for XTRF! We worked on a number of internal initiatives, developments and made overall progress in all the departments of our almost 70-people organization.
