This thread is part of the Translator playground: a place for translators to have fun, to network, to learn, and to hone their translation or linguistic skills. See the announcement here.

Need a quick break from work? In this area translators and language professionals can play games and share material which do not fit in other categories within the Translator playground.


Here’s some suggested take five music for your break, unless Jazz isn’t your thing:

Hi Romina, Apr 9, 2012

I love many kinds of music, but my playlist would mainly be, in the order: romantic, latino, classical and new-age.

While working I would have classical music in the background; I love this Italian radio a lot

http://www.veniceclassicradio.eu

Sometimes I switch to something completely different:

www.latina.fr

In this case I tend to get distracted because I like to dance ...

I recently bought online a wonderful CD Album by Carlos Baute, and while doing housework I listen to (and try to sing) it :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qExd-3oCTl4

Carlos Baute and Marta Sanchez : Colgando en tus manos.

By the way, I think they are Argentinian too

Enjoy !
