How to Sep 22, 2008

As I know, a person with competency can work as a freelance translator if only he can get the piece to work on. there is national examination to certify this competency.
How about it in your country?

An alternative solution Sep 27, 2008

Hi! Dallas,

I am also wondering whether the Powwow will be held or not.

I have booked an air ticket for this event and will arrive in Shanghai around 11:00 on the morning of tomorrow. Thus, it will be a pity if the Powwow is cancelled without notice.

Since there are quite a lot members interested in this powwow, do you think we can ask a friend (Stonejohn, maybe) in Shanghai to book a resturant? so the powwow can be held as scheduled even if Shirley fails to s

let me know what you guys think.

Oops. Stonejohn is not in Shanghai Sep 27, 2008

sorry, I just noticed that Stonejohn is not in Shanghai. I have to leave home for a while. Hope somone in Shanghai can volunteer to book a resturant or a room for 10 - 15 people. Or, we can simply gather in the Poeple's park:).

best regards,

Booking for the event Sep 27, 2008

Dear Shirley, did you try at 一茶一坐 on Huashan Rd.? This is where we held the Powwow last year. There is a big table upstairs, but I have no idea if they will require a min consumption fee. Eventually there are a few coffee shops on the Huashan Rd., more close to the Jiangsu Rd and Fuxing Rd. I will try to think about something else. Anyway, I live very close to this area and I am available if you need any particular help, so in case please ask:-)
