New Accounting System
Thanks to the work of our Accountants, we have installed a new accounting system which will hopefully make our lives a lot easier. We have now switched to the new Quickbooks programme which, so far, has been very impressive!
Welcome to Anna Lewis
The company contiunes to grow! A very warm welcome to Anna who has joined the team. Anna has just graduated with a first class degree in Welsh from Bangor University and lives locally in Rhosybol. We hope she’ll be very happy here at Bla!
Success at the Urdd
Congratulations to one of our staff members, Meleri Jones, for winning the third prize at this year’s Urdd Eisteddfod in the translation competition!
Another new member of staff!
Elin Rowlands joins the team this month as a translator. Elin is slowly reaching the end of her M.A. in Creative Writing and will be working two days a week with us until she completes the course in September, and will then be with us full-time. We are really pleased that Elin has agreed to join us as our workload steadily increases!
We very much look forward to welcoming Ceri Hughes very shortly who will join us as an Administrator. Ceri has a wealth of experience in the translation sector, having worked for many years in the translation unit of the Courts Service at Caernarfon.
Credits or Invoicing - choice is yours
Just a short note to explain that Bla offers two levels of service for translation work for our clients. In addition to the standard invoicing for longer pieces of work, we also offer a ‘credit’ service, whereby customers can buy a number of credits up front and use them gradually against specific tasks. This has been devised for shorter pieces of work, to avoid having to invoice the customer for small amounts.
Happy New Year!
This is the time to start planning your work at the beginning of a new year. Don’t forget to get in touch should you need any translation work completed - large or small.
Bla will be available all the way through the Christmas period, just in case you have any translation requirements over the festive holiday
Daily Post Awards
Bla is so proud to have been shortlisted onto the final 3 companies (out of 100) in the Daily Post Business Awards, to be held at Bangor towards the end of this month. We are competing in the ‘Best Business up to 10 Employees’ category.
