Reutlingen/Munich/Tulcea (Romania), 28 August 2016 – When Pascal Rösler passes the Romanian city of Tulcea and reaches the Danube delta at the end of September, he will already have travelled 2500 kilometres. Travelling on a stand-up paddleboard and in the service of a good cause: The campaigner from Munich draws attention to the conservation of water and rivers with his campaign. The Reutlingen-based company Transline supports him with its core competence – the translation of his website into eight languages and of his blog posts into English.
Half of the distance has been completed. In the meantime, Pascal Rösler has just about reached the Serbian capital, Belgrade. Before completing his adventurous journey on a stand-up paddleboard, a kind of surfboard, which is “ridden” standing up and controlled by means of a canoe paddle, he still has to cover more than one thousand kilometres on the Danube, Europe's longest river.
With his spectacular venture, the campaigner from Munich wants to draw attention to the danger to one of our most important basic needs: water. To this end, he founded the charitable association “Pure Water for Generations e.V.” before setting off on his journey from Munich to the Black Sea. “We have set ourselves the goal of supporting renaturation projects on rivers as well as promoting national and international educational projects on the topic of water,” he explains.
Transline supports the campaign with its core competence: The translation service provider translates the stories, which Pascal Rösler spreads on his blog during his tour, into English and the texts on his website into eight languages: Bulgarian, English, Croatian, Romanian, Serbian, Slovakian, Slovenian, Ukrainian and Hungarian. “With these languages, we are paying tribute to the countries that lie on Pascal Rösler's route,” explains Katja Schabert, the CEO of Transline. “And we help in a very practical way by ensuring that his commitment for the conservation of our waterways and for clean water is also understood wherever he is travelling.”
