Julia Hinz was the first winner of the Roevin-sponsored “Achievement in Translation” award presented at the Salford University graduation brunch in July. The award, presented by Alan White, Manager of Roevin’s Manchester office, aims to recognise outstanding achievement in the field of translation studies.
Roevin is committed to promoting excellence in the field of translation studies and values its links with Universities delivering the highest standards in language-related teaching. Roevin already has links with Salford University, which is a few miles from Roevin’s Head Office, as two of its Account Managers are Salford graduates.
