COVID-19 Update

The coronavirus global pandemic is currently bringing the world to a standstill and affecting countless industries. Many small business owners and freelancers also find themselves in a precarious situation as sales come to a halt and contracts get cancelled.

I’d like to reassure my clients that – for now, at least – it’s pretty much business as usual for Flamingo Translations. If we’ve previously agreed to a deadline, the work will be completed on time and to the best of my abilities. Should that change due to unforeseen circumstances, I will be in touch as soon as possible to provide you with alternative solutions.

Although I currently face the possibility of spending twelve weeks in isolation due to one of those ‘underlying health conditions’ we hear so much about, I’m aware of how fortunate I am not to have to add ‘money’ to my list of immediate worries.

Sadly, not everyone can say the same. If you are in a position where you can afford it, I encourage you to buy small and local whenever possible. And don’t forget to tip couriers – they put themselves at risk every day to ensure the safety of those most vulnerable.

To all my valued clients and colleagues, stay safe.
