Jasmin Schneider, Branch Manager, Birmingham
Jasmin Schneider was the deserving recipient of Roevin’s “Translation Manager of the Year” award and a trip to New York as her prize. Jasmin has been with the company just over two years and in that time has proved to be an exceptional translation account and project manager. SR Technics describe Jasmin as “highly professional and friendly” and Steris describe her project management as “expert”. Jasmin has written an account of her trip in her own words.
New York’s famous skyline
As the winner of the Roevin “Translation Manager of the Year” prize, I was recently treated to a long weekend abroad with other prizewinning colleagues. This year’s destination: NEW YORK! So eleven of us ventured out on a cold morning in March to claim our prize and to find out whether New York really was the most exciting city in the world.

Our hotel, the Library Hotel on Madison Avenue, turned out to be a fantastic choice, well placed in the heart of Manhattan. During the first two days we braved the freezing wind on top of one of those open-top buses and followed the standard tourist programme: Empire State Building, Fifth Avenue, China Town, Battery Park with Statue of Liberty, Wall Street, Ground Zero, Central Park, etc…
With the dollar exchange rate being so advantageous we thought it only fair to spend a whole day shopping. Obviously we also tested the NY nightlife. Our highlight was the Jazz Club on our final evening. Some swing dancing lessons at first and then we were ready to go!
Sadly we had to pack our belongings on the fourth day (not without some of us having to buy an extra bag because the suitcase didn’t hold all the new shoes, handbags…) and come back to good old England. However, we all had a really good time and this trip won’t be forgotten quickly!
