Translations and cultural adaptations

Good morning to all the Venusians out there!

My name is Erika, Venezuelan - Canadian.
Words are powerful, but can lose their strength if the target culture is not taken into consideration when translated.
We need to exercise our cultural awareness and sensibility when delivering messages.

I find the TVP is a beautiful, culture inclusive project where I can help with my "small grain of sand" to build a better world.
Count me in!

Have an awesome weekend!

Erika P. Roostna
