Translating Rosetta style

         In my food truck we offer many different meals but they all have one thing in common, they are all Mexican dishes. Even though we our target customer base is the American consumer, from time to time we do get a nice amount of Hispanic customers. Many times the predominant language our Hispanic customers speak is Spanish. This got us to thinking; we think that we may need a bi-lingual menu.

         We like to keep all of our customers happy and we like to make their visit to our food truck as pleasant as possible, and if it means translating their food options, then that's what we aim to do. Thinking about accommodating all of our customers got me to thinking about other companies and how they approach translating their menus or information for their consumers. So I did what anyone who is awake in the middle of the night would do; I started surfing...the web.

       As I was surfing, I ran into a great website that offers translating services for all types of businesses. Rosetta Translation for worldwide translation services could be one of the most helpful web pages I have run into yet. Rosetta Professional Translation services offers translation in many different languages; from Arabic, Bulgarian, Japanese, to Swedish and Thai. They also offer business contract translation, Braille translation, Medical Translation, Engineering translation, and Technical translation just to name a few.

After looking through their very informative website, I couldn't imagine how any company wouldn't use Rosettatranslation.com as their translation service agency. I highly recommend that business owners look into this website. As diverse as the business world is, having your company communicating properly and efficiently with the rest of  world is a must!

Spring cleaning!

We, or I should say I, have purged all unused toys and out grown clothes of all three of my kids. I sold some of the things on a facebook group page and that worked out pretty well. The stuff that wasn't fit to sell was given to our local shelter and thrift store.

I've also started the deep cleaning. I have a long way to go though. We have tons of windows and that means tons of blinds to clean.

I did buy myself a Rubbermaid spray mop. It's pretty darn awesome. I can wash and reuse the rag multiple times a day and don't have to worry about the swifter wet jet disposable pads you have to constantly buy. You'll be amazed at how much more dust and dirt the spray mop picks up, even after you have just swept. Yikes is all I can say about that! Lol

Food truck and marketing

Our food truck season is about to kick off again in a couple of weeks, and when it does we are going to be busier than ever. This will be our 3rd full year in the food truck industry and we couldn't be more pleased.  I knew we would do well, but I ha no idea how popular we at La Rosita tacos would be.  A friend of mine recently noticed our popularity and invited me out for coffee one morning, she wanted to talk business.

As we sipped on our coffees we talked about both our businesses and how happy we are to be self employed. There is no better feeling than being your own boss and setting your own hours. The food truck business is not glamorous at all, but it's a job that my husband and I do with pride and so does my good friend. She isn't in the food truck business though, she is in marketing and she shared with me a really neat piece of information that I think is too valuable to keep to myself.
She told me about a website called Listgiant.com.

It's a great resource for people trying to market their business to a large amount of potential clients. This website provides literally, giant lists of potential customers so that business owners can further their company in the market. It's such an interesting site and if you have your own business and are looking for a way to reach more consumers by the simple click of a button, then you should check out Listgiant.com
