Great text!!! Jan 4, 2007

It is the KudoZ that has recently reminded me of LOST... (the movie series). How can I choose a good answer to a question about a term from a scientific text on something I have no idea about... Be it one answer or four suggestions, with or without agrees... How can I make a right choice? Am I not totally lost? Literacy has many faces

A good Halloween story, thank you! Oct 30, 2012

At the same time, the list of illiteracy contains the enthusiastic message: So many people are literate and are our potential clients!

Favorite job Jun 12

Translation is my favorite job.
I am an engineering graduate.
But the income from engineering career for me is much lower than income from freelance translation.
This can be a life and an incentive why one 64-years old translator live on translation job.
