European Day of Languages 2022

Getting to know the t’works locations across Europe.

The European Day of Languages is a celebration of the diversity of languages and culture across the European continent. This linguistic richness is something to be treasured and we should all work to preserve it.

At t’works we are incredibly proud of our diverse European origins and our 6 major European locations, where we work to enable cross-cultural understanding and which represent the very heart of our multilingual and multicultural European landscape.

We’d like to tell you a little bit about each of them.
