Hmm. Would that fact that I am a proz member add to it in any way? It is still strange to see my face in the papers and on TV.

Let's see if the same happens for the wonderful dialect of the Forest of Dean - have translated old farmers from Forestese > English before. In pubs. Lubricating with rough cider.

Congratulations, though I do believe there was someone before you- the fellow on "Chewin the Fat" who used to translate the news for the Neds!
