Hi all.
I am thinking of moving to another country (again) and browsing the web I found several good links.
I was wondering why we do not have a special forum dedicated to those (many of us I guess) who want to relocate and/or share their experience. Or maybe we have and I ignore it?

Thanks for your comments
Paola

I think that's good idea, Sep 10, 2006

as from my observations, many translators move around a lot. And no, we don't have any special forum for that yet.

great idea Sep 10, 2006

That would be really great to have such forum here! The info there would help a lot for those of us who want or have to move to another country.

Happy you like it :-) Sep 10, 2006

We could ask for advice, have a sort of bulettin board, share links and so on.
What's the point of working at home if you do not move around at some point?icon_wink.gif

No Vladimir Sep 10, 2006

that would be just a thread. Please compare a thread in Russian and a Russian Forum.

So:

2) I'd like to hear from someone who has a room to let or want to look for a flat with me;
3) I've found some links I can share;
4) I'm glad to hear other colleagues' experiences.

I don't have any experience living in Bxls, Paola. Too bad you aren't moving to Mexico. I'd be happy to help with some of your questions.

Thanks Marcela Sep 11, 2006

I came across those sites.
My point in posting this thread was to encourage the creation of a new forum, as I'm sure many translators would appreciate it.
