Globalization is a French technical document secured by a Russian translation agency who had a Polish in-house translator with Croatian dictionaries. The job was posted on a popular job site at 2 Spanish pesetas / word. The offer was bagged by an aspiring Italian paparazzo with Romanian dictionaries and the term help was provided by Spanish Judos leaders and finally was proof-read by an Indian with the help of a Portuguese online dictionary. It was accepted. Perhaps, we can see the results of conducting daily marathon races of thousands of translators under one roof.

it was accepted... as toilet paper. Aug 16, 2002

No comment... quite funny though. Must have been because of the input provided by the Italian paparazzo, for sure.

yes, but it is also Aug 17, 2002

being able to work with colleagues in different time zones, exchanging TMs, advise and expertise, finding the best translation resources the world over, getting help at the click of a button...

And i will stop here because you know what I mean. Call me an inveterate optimist, but this is also how I see it.



cheers

I think I\'m lucky of (is it the right preposition?)living at these times when every thing moves fast, and that I\'m not too old to follow the changes.

I enjoy Internet every moment. Of course globalization has disadvantages and we have to be aware. I don\'t think it\'s just because we are inveterate optimists, we see both sides.
