Hello!



As everyone might not already know my name is Dima and I have been posting all the translations for \"welcome to the foreign language club\". Well, I don\'t want to talk about that subject right now, I\'m just sorry for all the requests



I am getting to the age to go to college and I would love to become a translator. I am already trilingual and would love to know how some translators on this website became translators, how the learned their languages that they translate from, just their whole experience of getting to the place they are right now. Thanks!

dear dima,

you have mentioned in your proz profile that:

(copyiing)

I\'ve had 17 years of experience revising and proofreading documents in the english language.

However here you are saying that you have reached the age to go to the college.

Do you mean, you have started proofreading right after being born, or, say, at 2 or 3 yrs of age?

Then you are to share your unique translation experience with our community.

Very best wishes,

- your pairs are fantastic -

I would really love to know about YOUR experience Aug 26, 2002

Your language pairs are really amazing. How have you learned these languages? If you\'re seventeen and have been working for that long, how was your start? I\'m really looking forward to know about this unique brain of yours! ;o)
