Our Power is our Care, Our Power is our Presence!
2017 is our 20th Anniversary and we are ready to celebrate!  
 
We would like to thank YOU! Our clients, translators, interpreters, staff and colleagues. Thanks to you, we have become who we are: one of the most trusted translation agencies and proudly Canadian.
 
More importantly, the Multi-Languages culture is about making the world a better place! We are a force for change, transforming the world one person at a time. We save lives, organizations and businesses through translation and interpretation in over 100 languages.
 
Because of what we do, people are happier, wealthier and healthier. After two decades in business, we still believe in giving back, and we want people to feel happy and help others to achieve the same. It is a privilege to carry on this mission. Helping others is what inspires us, we can't do this without YOU!
 
Stay tuned for special activities this year.

Empowerment Tips
 
New Year, New Me... Right? 
 
The New Year is a time where people set out to crush their goals and achieve what they've always wanted. But the sad truth is that 92% of people that set out to achieve their New Years Resolutions fail to achieve them. How do we become the 8% of people who succeed in their 2017 goals? Here's how:
 
Failure is Your Friend
Just because you missed one day of working out or one morning of waking up early, doesn't mean your New Years Resolution is a failure. Failure is a necessary part in the achievement of any goal. Embrace failure and keep pushing forward through the setbacks. 
 
Expand Your Vision
Many people see the short term gain of their New Years goal instead of the long term result. When we focus on instant gratification, it often leads to procrastination and frustration. Set your sights on your long term vision and get inspired by the big picture.
 
Build a Team 
Who you surround yourself with is who you will become. Build a team of people that will not only support you in your goals, but will also push you to get back on track. Having a group of people that holds you to high standards of accountability is one of the key pieces of achievement. 
 
Take Consistent Small Actions
Rome wasn't built in a day. Neither was any substantial amount of success. Great things take time. Great things also take small consistent actions done over an extended period of time. Daily actions done with enough consistency will build momentum and drive you towards your goals. 
 
Celebrate Every Win
Celebrating your wins, no matter how small, builds the momentum you need to breakthrough. When we celebrate our victories, we get a little boost of dopamine (the 'feel good' chemical) which tells our brains that we are on the right track. 
 
Enjoy The Journey
To experience lasting achievement, we must learn to enjoy the journey. At times, people forget to focus on what they can enjoy and eventually lose momentum. Look for the things you can enjoy and focus on all of the things you can appreciate about your journey. 
 
Realize that whatever you wish to achieve in 2017 is within reach. Everything you want is out there for you to take, all it takes is action. Push forward towards the things that you want and don't settle by being a part of the 92%. Be a part of the 8% who don't make quitting an option and make success the only option.

"When interpreting for victims of trauma, the greatest gift you can give to the survivor is letting his or her voice be heard. This past July marked the release of an innovative, in-depth training program to prepare interpreters to work with survivors of violent crime, with a strong focus on domestic violence and sexual assault."
 
"The recent AI update to Google Translate is an amazing leap forward in terms of technological innovation. So-called “neural networks” loosely mimic the human brain by “refining data through successive layers of processing units”, translating full sentences at a time (rather than translating words individually).
"A fun-loving Imgur user has posted a ream of some of the worst translation fails from around the globe - and they may make you feel better about any language struggles you've endured." 
"Early reports of avian flu infections among pigs in China were ignored by international science communities. Researchers suggest more translation of science journal will break down barriers."
