At World Translation A/S, we believe we have a social responsibility. We want to be involved, helping and shaping a healthy society and thriving business community – locally and globally. We want to nurture Danish culture and we want to create jobs and growth. This is why we support culture in our local community, and try to inspire people by holding exciting, informative events, sharing what is in our hearts and minds. And this is why we have devised this CSR policy.
Caring for our local community culture is important to us because from a socio-economic perspective, a well-cared-for cultural life is a sign of a well-functioning society. This is why we support the arts in our own local communities. Since 2012, we have been a product sponsor for “Den Gamle By” (“The Old City”) Open-Air Museum, which we believe is a vital part of Aarhus and Denmark’s cultural fabric and history. In January 2014, we entered into a new partnership with the major cultural project “Aarhus European Capital of Culture 2017”.
We believe that the European Capital of Culture project will put Aarhus and Denmark on the international stage. A greater awareness of Denmark can have a positive effect and help exports to grow. Moreover, we believe the European Capital of Culture project will create jobs locally and nationally. We also want to be a source of inspiration for our colleagues in the business community. This is why we willingly act as a sounding board and try to inspire people by holding exciting, informative events, sharing what is in our hearts and minds.
Furthermore, World Translation pays close attention to language education in Denmark. In our global world, it is crucial that there are language graduates working in Danish companies, to ensure that Denmark can continue to exploit its export potential. We are actively engaged in the debate on the development of languages in upper secondary schools and in the retention of language studies at universities.
The CSR policy is the basis on which we carry out our daily work, informing the activities we initiate or participate in – and these activities do not have to be work related or to do with our services. In short, our CSR policy informs everything that we do and we constantly adjust it, to ensure it stays relevant and sound.
