You have to be a total intellectual magpie to enjoy this activity! Sometimes pushing it to get a buzz out of translating endless tables, but there's always something there to catch your attention! Cheers everyone, Noni

Like reading Jan 26, 2007

I like reading so why I am not interested in reading things that I must translate?

75% of my projects are literary translations - very interesting, but not paying so well. The remaining 25% are pragmatic texts - no that interesting, but paying rather nicely. I am trying to get the best of both worlds

Ciao,
Hendarto
