Honoured to once again sponsor the City of London Police awards and charity dinneron Wednesday 22 June 2016 Written by David Martin
It is imperative that each and every citizen living and working in London feels safe and protected. People with lesser English language skills are entitled to the same security as anybody else; it is their right as citizens. At Today Translations we are proud to work with the City of London Police in supplying quality language and translation services, and fulfilling citizens this right.
On Friday, 24th of June, Today Translations and our specialist security division, Today Advisory, will be sponsoring the City of London Police charity and awards dinner, now in its 12th year. Our CEO Jurga Zilinskiene will present the Team of the Year award, which recognises the excellent law enforcement service provided by one particular constabulary force.
The Police awards bring together the best law enforcement personnel and some of the most benevolent figures from the Square Mile’s business community, with tens of thousands of pounds going towards charities and good causes.
As always, we are proud and incredibly honoured to work in such close cooperation with our local police force, and to be invited to support their charitable initiatives.
Providing language service to local law enforcement
Today Translations’ relationship with the City of London Police goes back many years. We sponsored the first awards in 2003, and were even commissioned to translate the Aristotle phrase, 'Excellence is not a single act', inscribed on the plinth of the Police Dragon award, into Latin. The phrase 'Virtus unum factum non est' is inscribed on the plinth of every Dragon award given out by the City Police.
In the 2014, Today Translations was the selected language partner for the City Police’s European Union Cross-Border Task Force conference, providing project management; simultaneous interpreters; translation booths and equipment; document translations; and audio and video recording of presentations.
Our special advisor on Anti-Corruption and Multi-lingual Due Diligence David Clarke also enjoyed a long career within the City of London Police, working through the ranks to become Detective Chief Superintendent. He joined Today Translations and founded Today Advisory after retiring from the Police in 2012.
