On Tuesday, December 20th, 2011 we dropped off the donations from our annual Holiday Donation Drive to "A Wider Circle" in Silver Spring, Maryland, including several boxes of non-perishable food items and several large bags of clothing and baby items, donated by our staff and neighbors in our office building here in Rockville. It is especially significant at this time of year when it is so important to keep in mind those in our community who are in need, and all of us at STI are happy to be able to give back to such a good cause.
Another important facet of our STI CARES community service program this past year was our work with "Translators Without Borders", an organization that provides free translation services to NGOs, with the goal of allowing them to be able to use funds that otherwise would have had to be spent on translation costs, directly for their important work, whether assisting with re-construction and development efforts in Haiti or working towards stamping out malaria in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Marla Schulman, STI's President, works actively with the executive committee of "Translators Without Borders", and this year, STI provided a financial donation to the organization on behalf of all of our clients and translators, and will continue to work closely with the organization this coming year.
This past year was an exciting and successful one for STI. We experienced exceptional growth, were awarded a number of new language services contracts, and have increased our in-house staff by more than 25% in order to meet the growing demand for our services. There will be many exciting things coming up for us in the New Year, and we look forward to meeting the challenges of 2012!
From all of us at STI, we wish everyone a very successful and Happy New Year!
