I18n Firm Finishes out Summer Grilling Season with Wild Burnout

Renowned leader in software internationalization, Lingoport, finished out the summer work grilling season today with one final wild burnout today. All members of the staff were invited to the porch on a glorious Friday afternoon in Boulder to witness what may go down in history as the greatest display of grilling prowess.

Lingoport Grillmaster, Chris Raulf, showed his veteran leadership as he prepared multiple hot dogs and hamburgers for his crazy coworkers. Gravity tried to knock the grill over, but Chris, like a true leader, said, “Stop that gravity, you may not tip over our grill!” Gravity listened and did not knock all the scrumptious meat off the grill. Lingoport Grilling Union head, Spencer Thomas noted Chris’ quick response: “His reflexes were astounding; almost superhero-like. Now that you mention it, they still haven’t identified the Spiderman have they? Hmm…”

The afterparty is where the real magic happened as the no-longer hungry workers danced to some beats thrown down by DJ Skrillex, the biggest name in dubstep. The fun had to be halted, however, after several noise complaints prompted Boulder police to raid the premises. Neighbors cited the fact that the dubstep music they heard playing was, “One of the most annoying collection of noises ever recorded.” Lingoport staff complied quickly and orderly with the police, telling the DJ to go home. One minor indecent was recorded when Grilling Union Member Jeff Flasck tried to steal one of the police cars. Bail was quickly posted and Jeff was sent into timeout.


Lingoport and Acrolinx Marketing Departments Partner for Friday Afternoon Barbecue

On a glorious Friday afternoon, Lingoport welcomed a member of the Acrolinx marketing department for their monthly company barbecue. Jennifer Beaupre, VP of Global Marketing for Acrolinx, was the guest of honor as pleasantries were exchanged over scrumptious hamburgers, hot dogs, watermelon and potato salad.

Lingoport’s software engineers joined as well, making an appearance outside of the attic where they typically spend weeks-on-end dealing with software internationalization issues and needy customers (this marks the first time they’ve been let outside since they were given the weekend off for St. Patrick’s Day).

Beaupre, making a surprise appearance, said that, “I was hesitant to come to the Lingoport offices, knowing what I’ve heard before,” but went on to add, “Chris Raulf (Lingoport’s Marketing Director & Grill Master) begged and begged until I felt like I had no choice but to come.”

Raulf’s grilling skills were on display as he prepared a feast of lean meat for the hungry workers. He was especially stoked for the occasion as Lingoport Grilling Union Head, Spencer Thomas, noted. “Chris was listening to Grillz by Nelly over and over again and yelling out “let me see your grill” to everyone in the office.” Thomas added that he tried to explain to Raulf that Nelly’s song was referring to a grille –a piece of jewelry– not a grill meant for cooking. Raulf, a native of Switzerland, did not understand the difference.

Leading Internationalization Services and Tools Provider First to Officially Open BBQ Season

Lingoport marketing director Chris Raulf notes that, “We weighed our options in terms of what sort of event to hold at the beginning of summer, and we decided that a barbecue would best fit the bill.”  Spencer Thomas, leader of the Lingoport Grilling Union, agreed with Raulf’s decision, saying that, “Barbecues are pretty chill.”
