Client case study
VOLVO OCEAN RACE
Volvo Ocean Race is a traditional round-the-world yacht race. Held every three years, it brings together sailing teams from all over the world who complete ten offshore legs and several in-port races over the course of 9 months.
Volvo Ocean Race needed a dedicated translator to provide on-demand Portuguese translations of press releases for immediate distribution during their 2011-12 edition. As the race was unpredictable and took place all over the world, I had to be flexible and available on short notice and weekends.
Immediately after all main events and races, the client would send me a press release, and I had approximately an hour and a half to send it back for review and distribution. The partnership was a success and I successfully met all their deadlines.
