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.



This free tool can be used to play various sound mixes on headphones while reading, meditating or just for fun.

I'm now listening to forest birds + heavy rain+ fire+thunder.

Any other mix you can recommend?

Have a nice weekend!

Romina

Radio of my choice Oct 26, 2012

I really like last.fm - it plays a radio mix based on your favourite songs. You also can enable a mix of music you know and new suggestions or pick a music style.

A nice weekend for you all, as well!

Can't beat the real thing... Oct 26, 2012

When I take a break I just hop on my motorbike (makes a lovely noise!) and head for the beach (4 minutes) where I can listen to the real sound of the sea. Beats recorded sounds any time - and I get a bit of much-needed exercise....

Have a good weekend yourself, Romina!

I find this little application very useful: just white noise or pink noise. Like living beside a waterfall.

Really? It's a nice tool, but I'd keep my hands off the Xmas mix. Those tunes can really kill the atmosphere!

Darth Vader, hair-dryer and sheep


Sounds like the perfect mix for a long, focused workday. I picture Darth Vader trying to blow-dry a herd of sheep in my office...
