(1) Marketing for freelancers who hate marketing
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Some freelance translators and interpreters find marketing their services time-consuming, or costly, or confusing, or unnecessary at the moment because they are fully-booked, or all of the above. And most would rather be translating or interpreting, not drumming up new clients.

If that describes you, you may want to read this article on passive marketing for freelancers. It's easy, inexpensive, works while you are working, and can make a difference if you suddenly find yourself not fully-booked:

(2) Laugh your way through the rise of the machines with Mox the translator
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The other day, the ProZ.com La Plata office received the latest collection of Mox comics, MOX III: Rise of the Machines. I'm a bit of a completist, so as a proud owner of Mox I and II, I can now rest easy, at least until volume four makes its appearance.

If you've been working in translation a while, chances are you have run into Mox somewhere, if you don't already regularly follow his adventures in translation:
