At wintranslation, we’ve made it a habit to give back to the community as much as possible, and in the ways we know best. In the past, we’ve done many volunteer translations for some great non-profit organizations. And this is one habit we’re not ready to kick just yet–or ever! This is why we have a special offering for you to take part of from January 9th until February 28th, wintranslation will donate 5%* of the profit of one of your projects to a charitable organization!
For the occasion, each wintranslation team member has picked a charity that speaks to their heart and is inviting you to choose the one that speaks to yours. When your pick is made, and your project completed, wintranslation will donate to your choice of charity on your behalf.
