Professional practices Philippe SALMON endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I enjoy translation and am fascinated by the origins of language and the huge range of knowledge I have acquired (much of it quite obscure and specialised) over a long and varied career. It can be very useful in unexpected places: a dinner party debate, or (as recently) winning the French Twinning Association's Annual Quiz. A weakness is that I am unable to watch any kind of quiz show (Who wants to Be a Millionaire, QI etc) without participating - I lost a bet with my family about this once, and the TV show was being transmitted in German!!

It is exciting to be part of a global workspace and the transformation in my working practices and interaction with clients and colleagues over the last few years because of IT and the Internet have been astonishing...years ago I used to get a lot of my work via courier bike - last year I had a global client based in Bahrain!

In December we had the exciting possibility of aliens bursting out of the mountain up the road from our office in Aude (Bugurach) to rescue the chosen few from the end of the world. Unfortunately, although I had the iPad at the ready, it didn't happen, so I'll have to be content with reading SF novels and watching Star Trek (as translation deadlines permit, of course).
