Hello Joanna,

Many translators have blogs that make very interesting reading. Try Google's blog search, or here are a couple of my favourites (including my own!)

Hello. All I can say is that I would never trade this profession in for any other out there. I will never stop saying that the gratification you get out of making differing parties understand each other is simply tops. The money? If you work hard and believe in what your doing, the $$$ will come in the end...but remember, you can't fake this job.

All the best.

Robert.
