Freelance translators? Nov 23, 2011

Hello,

Great! I am leaving for Melbourne and then Japan and will be back in Brisbane after December, 10. Let's see who else is interested and then decide on the date and time. I will be really glad to share experiences. I am starting up a freelance translation business - so any advice will be highly appreciated.

I just had a 'simple' translation / interpreting idea already! Nov 26, 2011

Hi all,

This is not too complicated and involves medical / community care, which can be extended beyond Australia. It can be extended to Europe, the US, UK and Asia. It involves Alzheimer's disease as I have a parent with this condition and believe me, it is very serious. It gets to the stage when language is involved and the person cannot communicate and gets lost, and you do need to cater for the person's needs. Also, I love to introduce other people to my European work contact beca

Hi all,

This is not too complicated and involves medical / community care, which can be extended beyond Australia. It can be extended to Europe, the US, UK and Asia. It involves Alzheimer's disease as I have a parent with this condition and believe me, it is very serious. It gets to the stage when language is involved and the person cannot communicate and gets lost, and you do need to cater for the person's needs. Also, I love to introduce other people to my European work contact because sometimes I'm too busy to take up the work to help him. Or alternatively, I need some help myself.

Project question Nov 28, 2011

Trinh, I am interested, can you tell me more? Can I participate somehow (which means can I use my English -Russian translation skills / research skills/ etc)? My email is kam.cath@gmail.com

Nice to meet you, Ekaterina Nov 30, 2011

I think we've 'met' on-line. I am your local payment contact, but I prefer the translation part. I will ask an Australian professor whether he needs any Russian historical documents translated. He's doing research on Vietnamese history, but this is intertwined with Russia during the 1940s when Stalin was in power. Maybe this might lead to somewhere, but not so sure. Look forward to see ing you.
My e-mail address is trinh.tdo@gmail.com

Alzheimer issue Nov 30, 2011

Oh yes, about this issue. of course, it can be used everywhere, especially when newly arrived Russians in Australia come here and after some time they develop the condition. It is only an idea, not quite a project, and interpreting / translation is essential in this area.

Hi there! I'm interested, but I start work at 6pm, so it will depend on whether my schedule allows me to "take some time off" that evening/week - otherwise it sounds great!

Potential venue suggestion Dec 3, 2011

The venue I suggest is Pigs and Whistle inn (a quiet place) at 'Indooroopilly Shoppingtown - very convenient for people from interstate, as there are buses and trains coming here. Another is University of Queensland Staff Club, in St. Lucia, but I must check to make sure they allow outsiders (actually my sister gets invited here every time she comes back here from the US). I am an alumnus there, but there are numerous alumni. Another place is Boucher or Three Girls Skipping at Graceville, 365 Ho... See more

YOu just catch the Ipswich/Richlands line (all stations) from the City or airport.Collapse

I actually remember that I have to be away in Sydney until December 12 Dec 6, 2011

Is it possible if you can arrange the Powwow on December 13-15? I misremembered the return flight to Brisbane, thought it was Dec. 11.
