Changes every year Jan 22, 2013

Really depends on which of my clients are receiving projects at this time. December 2012/January 2013 were extremely busy so far compared to January 2012.

Nothing slow about january Jan 22, 2013

Not a quiet second in sight, I'm pleased to report. Jobs were lining up already during x-mas, and it keeps on coming. If this continues, 2013 will be a very, very good year.

Usually yes ... Jan 22, 2013

Usually January is a very quiet month - but not this year. I'm pretty busy. Strange.

In general yes, but it depends on the year. This year it has been as good and busy as any other month, and in fact the past couple of years have been good, despite the economic crisis in Spain. In the past though, I've had some reeeeeally slow starts to the year, with nothing really kicking off until March.

I answered not particularly Jan 22, 2013

I´m with Marc and Miriam.
Usually January is a very quiet month for me (at least this was the case over the last few years), but not this year.

I hope this is a good omen for the year ahead

Happy translating everyone.

Manuela

Not a quiet moment Jan 22, 2013

January (as was December) is lining up to be very busy which is just as well! From my end the pace seems to be constant.

Quietish Jan 22, 2013

January tends to start quietly and then get busier and this year has been no exception. While the first week or so was quiet, the work is now back with a vengeance!

It is not, Jan 22, 2013

but this is because one of my clients sells agricultural machinery, and manuals, price lists etc. for the spring season are being prepared at this time. And another one is preparing its March AGM. But not much work from agencies, that's true.

Usually, but not this year Jan 22, 2013

Traditionally it's been a pretty slack month for me, but this January has been my busiest month since I started out, I've no idea where that came from!
