Hello!
Which is your 'translating trend'? I mean in which months do you produce more?
Which are the months you consider more productive?
From my personal experience hard months are usually April, August and December.

Never noticed anything in April, but August and December are definitely the months of too much work. In August, corporate clients seem to want big projects translated while everyone is on vacation, and in December they are probably also trying to use up the remaining annual budget.

About August I'm talking about my personal experience. During this month I usually work only 1 or 2 weeks. I think that December 'translation days' can be busy only when we are approaching Christmas.
