    Thank you very much for nominating me again. Babel has experienced tremendous growth in 2009, with nearly a doubling of translated words compared to 2008. I have incorporated two competing agencies into Babel, making Babel the by now oldest and without doubt largest translation and copywriting agency. Also in 2009 Babel was selected as official SL Solution Provider by Linden Lab, giving our work and quality a seal of approval. So it is only consequent that we were part of the 6th SL Birthday celebrations, which also marked Babel’s 2nd birthday. Finally 2009 saw the introduction of new services, for example the “Business Document” service for covenants, license agreements or terms of service.

    Hi Ener,

    Just to clarify, Peter did write a bit for SLENTRE back in 2008 and he is absolutely still a friend of the magazine. However, he did not actively work for us during 2009.

    He was nominted by two Second Life residents that have nothing to do with my publication and I felt it would be unfair to not include him among the nominees.

    Thanks for the great question and I’m so glad you discovered the magazine. Enjoy, Avarie Parker
