Studio Gambit Sponsors English Summer Camp 2016
The English Summer Camp is the summer edition of a charity educational programme organised by the Gdańsk branch of the Project Management Institute. The main purpose of the project is to enable children from Pomorskie and Kujawsko-Pomorskie provinces, who live in orphanages, foster families and families of low financial status, to take part in English lessons during holidays. The children also participate in introductory classes in project management that are to develop the abilities of task planning and sharing, teamwork and perseverance in pursuing goals.
Studio Gambit has decided to join the English Summer Camp 2016 as a sponsor because we always promote education and development. We believe that the values inculcated at a young age, broadening horizons, developing interests and the potential for teamwork and co-operation will provide the children with future benefits.
We support creative education
We are delighted to announce that the ZKPiG NR 8 team, whom we sponsor, have finished in the 11th place in the Odyssey of the Mind World Finals in Ames, Iowa, USA. The team competed against 57 other teams from all over the world and despite the bad luck, which had been plaguing them (burnt drone engine, broken ocarina, drenched sets), they proved that they were able to dream: boldly and based on goals, to think: on their own and out of the box, and create: providing both novel and effective solutions. The Odyssey of the Mind is a friendly educational program in the form of a competition for several tens of thousands of pupils and students worldwide. We are very proud of the ZKPiG NR 8 team and we congratulate all the participants of Odyssey of the Mind.
Studio Gambit now using the latest Across Language Server
With today’s advancements in IT and widespread Internet access, the multifaceted translation process can be considerably improved by applying the right tools.

The 5th edition of the international Translation & Localization Conference took place on 11-12 March in Warsaw, gathering crowds from the translation and localization industry. Participants were able to engage in presentations, workshops and debates to share their knowledge and skills. The conference was also a great opportunity for LSPs and end clients to come together and start new partnerships. As one of the sponsors, Studio Gambit participated actively in the event. During the Experts' Café panel on Saturday, we shared our experiences, and one of our Project Managers answered questions from the audience. The topics we discussed included project management, translation flow, and the interactions between an LSP and freelance translators. We cannot wait for the next year’s edition of the conference—please join us!
We are not some anonymous translators scattered around the country, locked in a virtual space that has no address, no coffee machine and no door labelled CEO’s Office.
Across Language Server 6 among the tools used by Studio Gambit
The quality of a translation results directly from the professionalism of a translator. However, technology and tools used for the comprehensive management of the translation project are also of the utmost importance, and Studio Gambit recognizes this fact. That is why, in 2014 we started our cooperation with Across Systems, the provider of a modern translation management platform – Across Language Server. This platform significantly streamlines job execution and allows easy deadline monitoring and supervision of the translation, revision and editing processes. Currently, Studio Gambit uses Across 6 – the latest version of the software, which helps improve the efficiency of our expert team, ensures the highest possible quality of the translation, and reduces the time needed to provide the client with the final version of the text.
