Welburn, North Yorkshire

This month our charitable focus was in support of the visit by Princess Anne to the Riding for the Disabled Group at Welburn Hall School in North Yorkshire.

The Princess visited in order to open the new riding arena, present prizes to the riders and to formally acknowledge the commitment of the volunteers who give so much time and dedication to the charity.

The Riding for the Disabled Association, also known as the RDA is a United Kingdom based charity focused on providing horse-riding and carriage driving lessons to people with both developmental and physical disabilities and Codex is proud to have supported over the past few years.

Welburn Hall School is a North Yorkshire County Council maintained special school with a strong reputation for excellence in working with children and young people who have a wide range of special educational needs.

On Thursday, 1st November, 10AM (UK time) we will be changing our main MemoQ (memoq.codexglobal.net) licensing server from ELM to CAL. This is just a different way to assign licenses to users who do not own a license.

 

 

 

IMPORTANT UPDATE (02/11/2018)

After the update on the 1st of November, some people are experiencing problems with their licenses when using MemoQ local client for Windows. With CAL licenses, you no longer need to run the Activation Wizard before checking our a Project, the license will be retrieved automatically when you open/check out a project. Please make sure you follow these steps:

  1. Your MemoQ edition is either Free or TPro (you can check in MyMemoQ menu)
    1. If your MemoQ shows edition None, then you need to activate it.
  2. You have cleared the CAL server details in MyMemoQ/Activation/CAL

The details about these steps are described in the section 9.c. of the below guide.

 

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU?

  • If you use memoQweb there won’t be any major change for you.
  • If you use memoQ client for Windows, MemoQ will try to borrow a license from our server when you open a project. You must have an active internet connection to keep that license active -unless you have your own MemoQ Translator Pro. Once we finalise the migration the changes should be transparent for you. Please refer to the below guide for more information.

HOW TO BUY MEMOQ (20% discount + 30 EUR cashback)

You can buy memoQ Translator Pro license at 20% discounted price by using the link below. This license can also be used for any other client you may be working with and also for your local projects:
https://www.memoq.com/Referral/Claim/?RefCode=r4llvign

Once you have bought it you may request a 30 EUR cashback on your next job from Codex.

All linguists with their own MemoQ Translator Pro license have higher priority on our supplier selection process. Our Vendor Management department keeps track of all MemoQ owners and in some instances we might assign some projects to these translators first when our pool of licenses is limited. In addition, purchasing MemoQ will give you access to Kilgray support and allow you to use MemoQ for any of your projects and clients.

GUIDE AND TROUBLESHOOTING
For more information, activation process and troubleshooting, please refer to this updated guide:

On Tuesday 7 November 2017 Ksenia Ivanova and Mirella Pascu from Codex Global were visiting lecturers at The London Metropolitan University department of translation and interpreting.

Ksenia and Mirela presented the students with an overview of the employment opportunities with a Language Service Supplier (LSP). They presented the routes to employment, gave an overview of the roles available in the sector, outlined the details of the well-regarded Codex internship scheme and recounted some personal anecdotes and advice.

The lecture was over subscribed by students and the informal Q&A session was detailed and informative, next time Maite Gonzalez FHEA, Senior Lecturer in Languages (Translation), BA and MA Translation Work Placement Coordinator London Met has agreed to allocate additional time.

Many thanks to London Met for entertaining Codex, we are proud of our relationship with the University, many of their former students are now Codex employees.

Mr Hollinrake was briefed by the Codex management team on the history of the business, it’s current vital statistics, the Codex service offering, our clients and an analysis of our geographical and sector activities.

Following the briefing, Rupert Foster the Codex MD introduced Mr Hollinrake to the team, he spoke to several employees from Europe and then addressed the whole office.

Mr Hollinrake’s speech focused on concerns raised by the team on the impact of Brexit, his thoughts on the future of UK businesses trading with Europe and the rest of the world and he concluded by saying:….”how encouraging it was to visit Codex, a company founded in Yorkshire, now head quartered in London, staffed with international employees and growing its customer base in UK, Europe and beyond”.

Many thanks for coming Kevin, we will remain in touch.

In January 2017, Codex was successfully recertified to ISO 9001: 2015 on Quality Management Systems, one of the key standards for the language services sector.

Moving on from our previous certification ISO 9001: 2008, Codex has retained its full scope of certification on language services including translation, website and software localisation, multilingual desktop publishing and interpreting. Our Quality Management System also incorporates ISO 17100 on Translation Services (previously BS EN 15038) and Codex remains compliant to its best practices.

Commenting on the achievement Ksenia Ivanova Production and Quality Manager at Codex Global, said:

“…our business is wholeheartedly committed to the quality of all the services we provide for our clients, taking the recertification to the latest version of the standard was vital to ensure sector expertise. The transition period lasted five months, including gap analysis, implementation and audit, concluding with a seamless implementation which was welcomed by the team and the management. Many thanks to the whole team.”
