Untranslate is faring well. To celebrate this professional success, we headed out to sea with the team for a weekend of unique experiences. The recipe: a sail boat, provisions for the crew – seasoned with a hearty pinch of sea salt – and lots of camaraderie.
Before we took off like real sailors, we enjoyed a typical Belgian dinner at Bistro Columbus in Middelkerke. With golden chips and frothy beers, we prepared ourselves for the next day, accompanied by the usual wordplays and puns that probably only linguists appreciate.
With a full stomach and the wind in our sails, we steered for Nieuwpoort. Our boat glided gently over the waves, basking in the warm glow of the setting sun. We spent the rest of the evening on deck, filling the harbour with laughter, chatter and matching music. All that was missing was pirate songs, the cry of a parrot and the clacking of a wooden leg. Fortunately, Rod Stewart was there to keep us company.
The next day promised scorching temperatures. At eight o’clock in the morning, we hoisted the sails while enjoying coffee, croissants and a welcome sea breeze. Our captain taught us the ropes with a real nautical briefing. After we had gone through the safety instructions, it was finally time to set our sails and sail ‘cross the sea.
To navigate a boat according to the rules of art, communication and precision are indispensable. The same applies to a qualitative linguistic creation, which our maritime adventure has only confirmed. So are you looking for a crew that runs a tight ship and weathers the storm for the best result? Untranslate floats your boat. With our linguistic team by your side, it’s sure to be clear sailing. Ahoy!
