About me
Winner of the UNITED NATIONS ONLINE VOLUNTEERING AWARD 2011 as part of the Fundació Catalunya Voluntària Translators' Team


"L'extrême plaisir que nous prenons à parler de nous-mêmes nous doit faire craindre de n'en donner guère à ceux qui nous écoutent" (The extreme delight we take in talking of ourselves should warn us that it is not shared by those who listen) - François de La Rochefoucauld

There was this young lady on ProZ,
Who wished she could translate some prose;
So she bought a CAT tool,
Then she thought: "Innit cool"?,
That proZaic young lady on ProZ.
(P.L.F.Persio®)

Many critics, no defenders,
translators have but two regrets:
when we hit, no one remembers,
when we miss, no one forgets.

-Anonymous

My take:
Critici a iosa, nessun paladino,
Del traduttore amaro è il destino:
Nessun sovvienesi quando l'azzecca;
Niuno dimentica se fa cilecca.
