Coooool :=) Jul 5, 2002

The last 15 years have been the beginning of a big revolution (internet, economy etc). Understanding of languages is the first condition for peace. It means good communication. Take a look to the disputes on Proz between translators and you will understand the difficulty !

One word may be understood in different ways - it depends on your mood.

Sometimes, too rarely, people ask for translations of emotions - most time there\'s an economic interest. It would be great to see a beautiful love letter one day.

A great weekend for all Proz !

Karin
