Today, STAR Translation announced their sponsorship of Spelling Rules, a free online game to help dyslexic children improve their spelling.

Developed by Claire McNelis, a Digital Media graduate from Galway, Spelling Rules was created as an online game that would teach spelling rules in a way that was simple and accessible for dyslexic people without being too academic.

STAR Translation is proud to announce that it has sponsored the game and made the free game (dyslexia-friendly spelling game) available online for all to enjoy.

Being dyslexic myself, I see the great benefit this game can bring. As part of our investment in corporate social responsibility, it’s great to be able to give something back that genuinely solves a problem I can associate with.

With close to 10 years of experience providing professional translation services from our offices in Dublin, we are delighted to be able to help Claire with the advancement and promotion of her game.

Paul Quigley, Director of STAR, speaking on behalf of the company had stated, “being dyslexic myself, I see the great benefit this game can bring.
