The ambitious aim was to create a native-speaker multilingual centre for translation and teaching in a wide range of languages.  The Centre was opened by the Mayor of Roskilde on 3rd September, but immediately ran into severe financial difficulties.
There were simply not enough freelance translators, proofreaders, copywriters, teachers and other experts committed to sharing the facilities of the Centre.  We wanted at least 20, but had we been 10, we could have survived long enough to reach our target.  As it was, we were only five full-time freelancers – with no queue of applicants standing outside the door.
We could not pay the rent, so we had no choice but to close the Centre in its physical form.  So, as from 1st January 2010, the Language Support Centre will no longer be located at Stændertorvet 2 in the middle of Roskilde.  And English support has moved back to Business House.
The challenge is to find a new way to achieve the same goal – maximum visibility for the valuable skills of our freelance network of native-speaker freelancers.  The way forward will concentrate on cyberspace (where the rents are lower), and we are already working on the plans.  If you have ideas or want to join our network, please get in touch.
