Message From The President

Looking after an excellent year

As 2017 has drawn to a close, it has been a year of growth and expansion for MKTG, as we continue to add new clients and contracts, and continue our service and involvement in community projects in the Ottawa Region. We have seen a surge of work in translation across the entire year due to increasing demand from our public-sector clients. We are pleased to have been awarded a contract from the Courts Administration Service, a federal department which combines the Federal Court of Canada, the Federal Court of Appeal, the Court Martial Appeal Court and the Tax Court of Canada. This will enhance our depth and knowledge of legal translation and administrative legislation and assist individuals, companies, organizations and the Government of Canada to submit and resolve disputes in both official languages.

The Federal Translation Bureau has also increased their demand for services, and we continue to function at full capacity thanks to the large volume of work from these clients. We look to establish a stronger global presence and branch out internationally in the years ahead.

We continue to establish partnerships with providers around the globe, and to leverage these resources according to project demands or requirements and make use of these partnerships in multiple continents. The hard work of our staff and translators is greatly appreciated, and we are always on the lookout for linguistic talent in several languages (see our careers page for further details).

We wish to thank our partners who do so much for the less fortunate in the Greater Ottawa area, including Huguette Koller at Otto's BMW, The Metropolitan Church here in Ottawa for hosting and organizing our annual Christmas party and toy drive, which is made possible by Patti Taggert at Tag-Along-Toys in Kanata. We feel the blessings of the Christmas season and love to be a part of giving wherever we can, and are thankful for our associations and partnerships with these groups. We wish all our staff, clients and associates a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and we look forward to another prosperous year as 2018 approaches.
