While LEO is an educational organization, and we typically focus our posts on education, language access and language industry news, some global events are not to be ignored. Attack on Ukraine is horrifying by itself, but it also impacts the whole world. As interpreters and translators, we dedicated our lives to bridging the gap between languages and cultures, to helping people understand each other. We condemn the attack on Ukraine and the unnecessary violence it brought to innocent people. We stand with Ukraine and all those who are against this violence. SAY NO TO WAR.
