... the most beautiful side of being a translator/interpreter is the look on my seven months baby angel when I try to translate for her a story (sadly i have to, because I can't find any children books in Arabic in Brisbane yet) and she smiles at me that angelic one-toothed smile... I've translated children books for so long... only looking at her and seeing the reward of my effort in her smile, just makes my day!!

I just thought about sharing this with all the fellow working translators mums, knowing that some parts of the world celebrated Mothers day yesterday , March 21st...

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!

Mother's day???? Mar 22, 2011

Oh sh....! Thanks for the reminder

(it's a different day in Austria to the UK, but that has never been a good excuse with my mum!)

mother's day Mar 22, 2011

Mother's day is on the 3rd April in the UK this year, so you are still in time, David

I know the feeling though, in Spain it isn't until June, and I have to really organise myself to send a card out for the right date.

@ Bara'a: enjoy this wonderful year with your baby. They grow sooo quickly (mine have just overtaken me in height!).

is it that different? Mar 22, 2011

I did not realize how dates are different around the world!! thanks Richard and Emma!

Richard: It is easy for me to remember Mothers day in March since my mother's birthday is just two days earlier from that date, so I ALWAYS make notes and reminders from the beginning of the year so I don't end up forgetting both!
