Dear colleagues,

Please join me in congratulating our site founder, Henry, and his wife, Rumi, on becoming a recent father and mother to a beautiful, (and judging from the pics) a very ruddy (and future bilingual) baby boy! The wee one has a really cool name: Kodi. Sounds Alaskan, Henry! Borrowed from Aleut perhaps?

Congratulations as well to Marta, our tireless Proz.com staff member, on her newborn.

So please, folks, no complaints about Henry and Marta being slow in responding to e-mails. They're probably changing diapers (or learning to do it) or mired deep in baby goo.

My wishes of health and baby bliss to Kodi and Marta's baby...and lots of sleep to the parents. They sure will need em in the coming weeks and years!

Let's all welcome new additions to our bi-/multilingual world.

Marcus

It's a matter of practice. And soon you'll be doing it with one hand

Congrats to all the new dads and mums.

For such a patriotic gesture: Having babies at this time.

And my gift is in the mail: One package of Trados Jr. for each!

When my son Giovanni was born, almost three years ago, a fellow translator commented:
"Think of it as a job assignment: the translation took 9 months, but after that you'll have to go through a lifetime of editing!"

Pictutre this... Nov 8, 2003

Right hand : baby number one in the process of being changed
Left hand : baby two at the breast
Right shoulder : at rest
Left shoulder : phone tucked away under chin in full negotiation with client

Kids now at school and office no longer at home.

If I can get through this, anyone can!

Good luck,

Nikki
