I love my job ... Jan 25, 2011

I have freedom and flexibility. I can work the hours I want and accept the work I want. I don't have to spend loads of time marketing or dressing up for business meetings. I can work from home, in my pyjamas if I choose. And nobody gets to tell me what to do. Perfect.

At least that's the theory!icon_wink.gif

yes Jan 25, 2011

I chose it, I love it, I feel always positive and willing to learn, improve, how many jobs could I have done with the same feelings?

you have to be Jan 25, 2011

I think it's one of the kinds of jobs that you can only really do if you love it. If you didn't like the process of translating it would be terrible.

I look forward to working. I am fascinated by the whole translation process, exploring the interface between two languages and cultures, and enjoy the satisfaction of creating something that is difficult to create and useful. So many people hate going to work, which makes me feel really lucky.

I look forward to working as well, so much that I can hardly wait to get up in the morning. The only aspect I regret is the fact that I work with several small jobs which require fast turnaround, and that sometimes leads me crazy. It would not be like this if we had a broadband connection in my area, but it seems we are still living in the stone ageicon_frown.gificon_smile.gif

If only new translators would be given a chance... Jan 25, 2011

.... then I would truly love it. Being ignored for any jobs because of little experience shatters anyone's confidence. At least employers should consider a translation test for us newbies to show what we have to offer. I have a passion for translation but the circle "no experience, no job" gets to you sooner or later.
But I'm still positiveicon_biggrin.gif

Greetings from somewhere in Boliviaicon_wink.gificon_smile.gif

I can be anywhere, I can work at any time, and I truly enjoy being able to create, to build, to elaborate, I love conveying the meaning of concepts, I love to try to follow the train of thought of the writers/authors... etc...

Cheers!
