(1) Taking stock of 2018, looking ahead to 2019
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As the year begins to come to a close, many people take stock of the last twelve months and make plans for the next. How was your 2018, professionally? Do you have any specific plans or goals for your work in the coming year?

(2) In memoriam: José Henrique Lamensdorf
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

José Henrique Lamensdorf was a long-time ProZ.com member, and a constant contributor to the site. He was quick to help in the forums (with over 4,000 posts) with thoughtful, detailed insight from the point of view of the experienced translator. He will be missed.

(3) Translators and interpreters at the movies
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If reflecting on the year as a whole is a bit much right now, how about the past week? A recent poll question asked translators and interpreters to share what kind of movie their work would would be, if it were a movie. Would it be an action-packed thriller? A comedy? A student art film? See what others said and add your take:

(5) How do you set the fee for rush jobs?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For rush jobs, an extra fee is often applied. But how does one decide what the surcharge for a rush job should be? This question was recently posed in the Money matters forum. See what colleagues had to say:
