As a leading Single Language Vendor in Bulgaria, EVS Translations is pleased to have been a sponsor of the Evolution of Technical Communication conference. The event is the annual gathering for all technical communicators in Bulgaria, organized by Tekom (Association for Technical Communication), and took place in Sofia last Friday, 19 June.
The conference highlighted the latest trends in software documentation and in particular viewed software documentation as a product allowing seamless integration of new content, while at the same time improving the accuracy and quality of documentation.
Technical communication is serious business with many opportunities for all professionals working in that field, for instance technical writers, technical translators and marketing managers. As a translation company embracing the new trends, over the last years EVS Translations has expanded its international departments to include many DTP, voice-over and subtitling, video, SEO, web developer, formatting and alignment experts. Indeed, the future of the translation industry is closely connected to specialised software and agile development, as the conference again pointed out.
Impressions from Yanitsa Kirova, EVS Translations Sales Manager in Bulgaria:
“The Tekom Conference in Sofia was a great success. Many speakers from across the documentation industry spoke on the changes and the challenges facing documentation and its distribution, especially the adoption of concepts from agile development.”
Until next year, when we hope to see more integration of translation into the agile documentation process and when our IT expert John Flathmann would be one of the key speakers at the ETC venue.
This Sunday, 7th June, EVS Translations Bulgaria participated in the biggest team building event in Bulgaria. A corporate relay race, 4 x 4km, which took place at the Business Park in Sofia in partnership with Post Bank Bulgaria and Begach Running Club.
Our two teams – EVS Dream Team and EVS The Alternative ran together with 150 corporate teams supporting the noble cause of the For Our Children Foundation to help children with mental and physical disabilities overcome difficulties in their progress.
EVS Translations Bulgaria’s teams proved that they can run as good as they work together – they skilfully carry out their work tasks and work in cooperation, which definitely helped at the Business Relay Race.
Regardless of the heat and the melting pavement, EVS Translations’ die-hards managed to keep the spirits high and the competition behind up to the very finish.
Our teams will keep on training and next year we promise the parrots will grab the gold!
After 20 years on the Bulgarian market, we have built a fantastic team to be proud of and encourage. Fit bodies and fit minds – Congratulations!
And next Wednesday, 17th June, our Offenbach office will compete along with other 70.239 corporate runners from 2682 companies at the J.P Morgan Corporate Challenge in Frankfurt.
Our German team is in hectic preparations for the largest company run worldwide and the largest running event in Europe – the excitement is growing and the clock is ticking!
Attended by many oenophiles, the exclusive wine reception took place on September 24 in the lobby of the company’s building, specifically decorated for the occasion. During the evening, guests enjoyed various German and Bulgarian wines in an elegant atmosphere. A wide selection of European hors d’oeuvres was also served. The diverse wine selection was very well received by attendees and perfectly complemented by the culinary offerings, which were also very popular.
Edward Vick, company founder and CEO of the EVS Translations Group, looks back with satisfaction on the wine reception: "I am very happy with the positive response and to have had the opportunity to meet our business partners and friends in person. This type of event is an important part of our corporate philosophy and a good opportunity to meet outside the office."
The feedback from guests was so positive that EVS Translations is confident it will host the event again next year.

There is no denying that work is important. It is how we make a living and, at best, what we do for that living is rewarding, gives us self-worth and motivation, and justifies the need to go into the office every day. Work is an intrinsic part of life and without the worthwhile challenge of our day jobs, most of us would quickly become bored. At EVS Translations, our employees are challenged on a daily basis in their work and are sometimes pushed to the edge of their limits. During the hectic annual report season, for example, we often get inundated with orders, which increases our standard workloads and our working hours along with it. In such hectic periods, it is of prime importance – for our translators in particular – to strike a balance in their lives to ensure they can function when they come into work the next day and also so they don’t lose the enjoyment of translating.
Our employees’ lives matter to us and so we wanted to find out how the members of our team – from the translators to the accountants – unwind after work and recharge their batteries, and how this helps them to strike the right balance in their professional and private lives.
In 1859 a writer for the Industrial Journal labeled Atlanta a “city in the woods” referring to its lush surrounding and its history as a backwoods railway outpost that as recent as 1847 only had thirty residents. Today, of course, the ATL, or Hotlanta, is home to 5,500,000 million inhabitants and represents everything but a remote railroad town.
Today, Atlanta is the heart of a Southeastern economy that generates a GDP of $3.15 trillion, which would rank as the 7th largest in the world. Its rich transportation history and favorable geographic position have turned the city into one of the nation’s most important logistic hubs and distribution centers for importers and exporters alike. Atlanta is not only home to the world’s busiest airport but also thoroughly connected to major trucking routes and, by means of its Savannah port, global sea-traffic.
