(1) Do you remember your first translation project?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What was your first translation project about? Translators looked back in a recent poll discussion to the first projects they can remember, and shared their stories. Take a peek and add yours to the forum thread:

(3) Do you have an emergency plan?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Are you prepared in the event of a computer or software crash? What happens if you are in the middle of a project and you or a family member needs to go to the hospital? ProZ.com member Christina Baier -- http://www.proz.com/profile/1975900 -- recently brought up the idea of having a plan for emergencies, to help minimize any negative impact on your work. Do you have a plan of your own, or would you add anything to the considerations mentioned in the forum thread below?

(4) Do you belong to any Facebook groups for language professionals?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Many Facebook groups for language professionals have sprung up over the past few years, where you can meet with others working in translation and get help. If you are a translator and you are on Facebook, you might be interested in the group "Standing Out." From the group's description:

"The focus here is broadly on what's going right in our working lives, and on the philosophy that makes that happen: the values, attitudes and beliefs which help people get ahead, assuming they have decent professional skills.

We believe there is room online for an upbeat space, as it's when in a more positive and relaxed frame of mind that we find the best and most creative solutions to our questions. Humour, imagination, letting go and inventiveness are key tools in facing the daily realities of freelance life."
